Canadian Flag and Tissue Paper

Canada Flag collaborative artCan you believe this mural is made out of craft tissue paper?
Thanks so much to Krista Dillon and her students who experimented with my Canadian Flag Mural and came up with this beautiful piece.

 

MATERIALS
• PDF Canadian Flag mural, printed on card stock and taped together
• Craft tissue paper
• White glue
• Old pencils

 

DIRECTIONS
The technique is one that I haven’t used since elementary school. It’s made up of lots of craft tissue paper cut into 2″ squares, white glue, and a little patience. Each square is wrapped over the eraser end of a pencil, dipped in white glue and pressed into place. You’ll need to trim and tape the templates together first and that’s basically it. The closer you place the tissue squares together, the better it looks. Thanks again for sharing this masterpiece Krista.
