Cookie Cutters (optional)
First, you need to cut your tissue paper into strips, then cut the strips into pieces.
Next you will need two pieces of contact paper (the same size).
After peeling the back off from one sheet; you can tape it to the table to keep it secure while your child adds his/her tissue pieces. Cover a certain area of the sheet with your tissue paper and then take the back of from contact paper #2. Lay on top of the tissue paper; carefully trying to make as smooth as possible. Removing a small portion of the back at a time works best.
