I love tissue paper, I love how it is so transparent, so I was delighted when we made this completely see through tissue paper picture for a window.
Well, I suppose you could have it on a wall, but it should really be where you can see the light shine through the paper. I have tried other ways of making a tissue paper collage, but it did not pass my easy to do test! I want to find paper crafts for children that are easy to do and work, and this one is pretty good.
You need plastic contact paper, some black paper and bits of torn or cut up tissue paper. Cut the outline of a simple shape out of the black paper. Peel the cover paper of the plastic contact and stick the black shape onto it.
Now hand it over to the children to do their thing with lots of bits of tissue paper. Their thing being covering all the sticky bits of contact paper with tissue paper. My daughter had a lovely time carefully selecting and arranging the colors on her bird. It doesn’t matter if the tissue paper goes over the edges of the black paper. When they have finished adding the tissue paper, cut the shape out again – trimming off any overlapping tissue paper.
Display on a window to really appreciate the colors of the tissue paper.
