How to do Paper Mosaic Card

Paper Mosaic

by Libby Hickson

Create a mosaic look by adhering tiny paper pieces to your paper.


  • Cardstock (Hero Arts Layering Paper in Pine, Grass & Celadon used here)
  • Mod Podge, or other liquid adhesive
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Outline Stamp Image (Hero Arts K5628 Circle Ornament Tree used here)
  • Permanent Ink (Ranger Archival Ink used here)


  1. Step 1

    Create paper mosaic "tiles" by trimming paper into small squares of various sizes.
  2. Step 2

    Mark an outline on base paper of the general area to cover with mosaic.
  3. Step 3

    Begin the mosaic by using a paintbrush to apply a small amount of Mod Podge to the cardstock and lining up the paper squares.

    Work in a small area at a time as the thin coat of Mod Podge can dry rather quickly.
  4. Step 4

    Continue to add paper tiles until mosaic is complete. Cover with a top coat of Mod Podge. Allow to dry thoroughly.
  5. Step 5

    Stamp image with permanent ink, being careful not to smear the image on the glossy surface.
  6. Step 6

    Trim image and complete the card.
  7. Optional:
    Instead of stamping, die-cut shapes from the mosaic.
