Tissue Paper Tuesday

Guess what?  I have another tissue paper creation for you!  I am calling this one stained glass.  Why?  Because if you were to put it up to the window it would look like stained glass.  Also, because my dad has a stained glass butterfly in his window that he has had since I was a baby AND he made it!  Yep, that apple doesn't fall far does it?! :)


You can probably guess how I did this?  It is pretty much what it looks like...and that is that I cut two butterflies in black from the Top Dog Dies Butterfly Die Set.  In between I layered a rainbow of tissue and glued the outer layers together.  A quick tip- I used micro glue dot to tack the pieces of tissue together and to the butterfly.   When I was done fussing with the tissue and adhering the layers together, I carefully cut the excess tissue off.  A little time consuming because it is fussy, but really pretty easy and so fun.

So what do you think, are you going to give it a try?  I hope so.  In fact, I'd really love to see how you are using tissue paper in your creations, please leave your link in the comments and I'll stop by and visit you.

Before you go- one kind shout out to Noelle McAdams for the sweet RAK the other day!  Isn't that just the sweetest?!  Thank you kind friend!!!!

How wonderful that you were inspired by your dad's hand-crafted butterfly; I'm sure it's gorgeous, as is your card! Your tissue butterfly is ever so pretty and pairing it with the yellow happy and wee twine/knot adds to the impact. Dazzling delight!
