My other little artist...

Emma created something equally as wonderful this week for Valentine's Day.

Supplies for this project:

Unsharpened pencils
Tissue paper cut up into squares
Construction paper cut in the shape of a large heart.

Step 1. Take the tissue paper square and wrap it around the center of a unused pencil (or the eraser pencil top). Be sure to wrap the paper around the pencil to form a cup shape.

Step 2. Pour glue onto a paper plate or a plastic lid, dip the bottom of the tissue paper onto glue and place the pencil with the tissue paper onto your heart. Pull the pencil out gently leaving the tissue paper glued onto the paper. You can work in rows, using different colored tissue paper, or just place the tissue on any way you want. Once you get used to wrapping the paper around the pencil to form a cup, the process does go pretty fast.

We used this technique a few years ago and made Tissue Paper Dragon Masks. See here for information on this CNY craft project.

Happy Crafting! Happy Saturday!
