Kids Crafts; Tissue Paper Project

Updated on January 24, 2012

Do you want a fun and easy craft to do with your kids? One that is simple and easy enough for them to do on their own? Well you have come to the right place. This tissue paper project is great for kids and adults. If you did a design like the one in the picture it would be a good gift for valentines! This crafty project is so much fun to do with friends and family, and very inexpensive. Doing this project with your kids can give you more ways to spend time with them, and they will have loads of fun. If you are always wondering what to do with the left over holiday tissue paper, you now have something to use it for. You can make your project as big or as little as you want, this is something fun for you to do so make it your own and have fun. Keep reading for directions and what you need to get started.


Draw desired shaped on sturdy paper. (Contact paper is great for window designs, and sticky paper is good for kids who aren't so great with glue) Cut tissue paper into 1 1/2" squares. Put your fingertip into the center of the square you just cute and squash the paper around your finger. While your finger is still inside the paper, dip into glue. ( I prefer Elmers glue for kids and its the best to use for these fun projects) Place paper within outline, continue until filled. For a really pretty and unique design use different shades of colors of tissue paper. Design your tissue paper project anyway you want, show it off to your family and friends, have fun, thanks for reading!

What you will need:


Tissue paper


Sturdy piece of paper

Marker (To draw your outline on the paper)
