So for summer vacation, we created some kite sun catchers for the windows.
There is no special trick for these. I think they are self-explanatory.
You take two pieces of card stock, or one piece folded in half, depending on the size of whatever you are making.
We made some kites before summer vacation. So, we drew a diamond, cut out the middle. Then we glued kite paper in differing cuts and shapes to the inside of the bottom sheet. (Think of it as opening a hotdog bun. Flip the top over next to the bottom sheet. We put glue stick on the bottom black paper. You can use any adhesive--scrapbook tape, modge podge, whatevs. Using glue on the kite paper where the sun will shine through will also make the glue shine through, just a little FYI.
Then you put glue on the top flipped over piece of card stock, flip it back over and place it on top of the bottom sheet. For these kites, I also cut some ribbon for the tail.
For summer solstice, we decided to create a sun and moon combination. This is it's temporary home.
I do think these suncatchers look cooler in person. *sigh*
