- colourful tissue paper (cut into small, let say 3 cm x 3 cm / 1.2 in x 1.2 in squares)
- paper glue
- blank postcards with envelopes or some harder paper
- With a pencil draw on a blank postcard some not complicated drawing.
- Roll in your fingers tissue paper into small balls, make a lot of them, more than you think you need.
- Cover area of the drawing on the postcard with the glue and quickly stick tissue balls, making sure you are covering the pencil line, it should not be visible.
- You may also combine this method with some other things you can stick to the paper, such as paper leaves, little wooden elements, bids etc.
My 3 (almost 4) year old made first card for Father’s Day (the one with circle) almost on her own (except cutting tissue into squares), then I helped her to draw a frog (for her Grandfather) and she filled it with paper balls on her own.
More tissue paper design cards (for Valentine’s).

Paper crafts had been extremely popular for a while now. Most children start out doing paper crafts in class. The teachers typically start the kid out with very easy paper crafting tasks. This normally involves giving the kid several color options and as well many styles of construction paper to work with. Many professors usually provide kid many tips to begin with, but each kid is encouraged to show their creative imagination on their crafting paper project.This type of disciplines and crafts can also be extremely stimulating for adults. Several, use the paper crafting material for arrangements, by placing all of them in a present basket or using them as gift wrap. While some utilize them for an American preferred pastime called scrapbook.
