4th of July Tissue Paper Stars Craft

Pin It
These 4th of July Tissue paper stars will look great hanging on the window for Independence Day. They're made from tissue paper and contact paper.
Materials:

  • black construction paper
  • contact paper
  • blue and red tissue paper
  • scissors
  • red, white, and blue card stock or construction paper
  • glitter glue and other decorating materials
  • scissors
  • craft knife
  • hole punch
  • string


Directions:

  1. Trace and cut out a large star from black construction paper. Use a craft knife to carefully cut out the center. It might be easier to do this before cutting out the star.
  2. Cut a large sheet of contact paper and peel off the front.
  3. Lay the star on the sticky side of the paper.
  4. Cut red and blue tissue paper into 1 inch squares. Stick the squares all over the inside of the star. Try not to leave any gaps. If they stick outside the star, it's OK. You'll trim them off later.
  5. Peel off another piece of contact paper and sandwich it on top o the first piece. Smooth out and cut out the star.
  6. Cut out 1 square from red, white, and blue construction paper.
  7. Trace big block letters, "U", "S", and "A", 1 for each piece of paper.
  8. Decorate inside the letters with glitter glue or star stickers.
  9. Punch a hole at the top and bottom of the papers and tie them together with string so they read, "USA", vertically.
  10. Punch a hole in the top and bottom of the contact paper star. Tie the letters to the bottom and tie a string at the top to hang up.
