Spring Craft using clear contact and tissue paper
The finished craft
Step1: I cut the contact paper 8" x 12" (roll 12" wide) & cut 1/2" strips of card green
cardstock on the paper cutter
Step 2-5: I lifted the edges to add the card stock frame to add all sides to the frame
card stock stuck to the contact paper
Craft was prepared ahead of time so card stock frame was added ahead of time.
The backing was left on contact paper until I arrived for the craft activity.
Step 6: cut string 8" - 10"
Step 7: Hole punch on one side of frame
Step 8: tied ends of string and pulled through punched hole
Step 9: Pull tied end through loop
Step 10: When kids are ready to do craft the paper was peeled away from the
clear contact paper
Step 11: Craft punched butterflies placed on the sticky side of contact paper
Step 12: Torn or cut tissue paper stick to contact paper, overlapping and covering the butterflies. I encouraged the kids to cover the butterflies and showed them the other side - otherwise they did not realize the butterflies would show since they are
working on the back side.
Craft hung in window allows the light to show shine through the tissue paper. I especially like how the overlapping tissue paper makes new colors!
