With scissors or stylus, create your composition of paper cut-outs. Inspiration can come from anything and anywhere—from abstract doodles in your sketchbook to the nature in your backyard or the food on your plate.


Overview

Whether you prefer the analog process of Henri Matisse. or feel more comfortable in the digital realm with your iPad and Procreate—see the how-to here—we’re excited to see the variety of shapes that make the cut for this challenge!

We think these designs would liven up anyone’s lunch printed on reusable napkins, so your design will be previewed on an 8” x 8" swatch. With Earth Day right around the corner on April 22, we can’t think of a more fun way to take a small step towards being eco-friendly in your everyday life!
