Tissue Paper Stained Glass Window

I love this Mother’s Day card because it uses one of my favourite materials – contact paper – a super sticky translucent material that is great for crafts and activities with kids. The idea for this card was to create a simple stained glass window on a card using brightly coloured tissue paper and contact paper. The results were wonderful and it was a lot of fun to make.
