Fold the piece of the construction paper in half on the vertical side, then unfold it.
Use a pencil to draw the shape of your choice on plain paper, using the fold as the center line of your shape. OR simply print off our templates and cut the shapes out.
Refold the paper and about 1” in from the edge of your drawing (or cut out template), start to cut the shape, using your drawing or template as a guide.
Then keeping it folded, cut out your shape along your drawing.
Lay 1 contact paper piece sticky side up on a flat work surface and carefully lay your shape onto the sticky side.
Tear or cut the paper into tiny pieces and press onto the contact paper. I added some leaves onto the apple!
When the tissue paper design is complete, lay the 2nd piece of contact paper (sticky side down) onto the tissue paper/construction paper shape.
Cut out around the apple/acorn/pumpkin following its shape. Add some rolled clear tape to 1 side and affix to a window.
Expert Tips & FAQs
*If you are cutting an apple or pumpkin, unfold your cut shape and carefully cut the around the stem shape (so it is solid). If you are cutting an acorn, while the paper is folded, cutout the “cap” of the acorn first, then the bottom part of the acorn. Then unfold and cut around the stem. *If kids want to work on their scissor cutting skills, have them cut the tissue paper instead of tearing it.Young kids may need help with the drawing and cutting as well as the contact paper steps. You can prep steps 1-4 ahead of time if you prefer.
