I love craft materials that are commonly found, affordable and colorful like…tisuse paper! Using this versatile paper in any color is an easy way to craft up some gorgeous projects with the kids. Make pretty coasters, stunning stained glass windows, bowls, vases, or tissue paper flowers. These are fun activities that kids can make themselves for decorative displays or gifts for family and friends. What are some of your favorite tissue paper projects?
