Stained Glass Book Marks

With summer fast approaching, it seemed a good time to look at crafts that are easy to do with large groups of children. These are great Vacation Bible School or party crafts.

You will need:

  • clear Contac® paper
  • tissue paper in a variety of colors
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • hole punch
  • yarn
  • small piece of thin cardboard to create a template

Cut out a book mark template from the thin cardboard. In the past I have used a cross, but a rectangular book mark shape will work, too. Use this template to trace one per child on the Contac® paper. Do not cut the crosses out, but do cut them apart so that they are each on an individual piece of Contac® paper. Cut the tissue paper into very small pieces. These are the stained glass pieces. They can be randomly cut, or you can use precut confetti.

Each child receives a Contac® paper cross and another blank piece of Contac® paper of equal size. Peel the backing from the piece of Contac® paper with the cross. Allow the children to sprinkle tissue paper onto the sticky side of the Contac® paper. Turn the piece on its side to dump off any pieces that don't stick. Peel the backing off the second piece of Contac® paper and place over the tissue paper side of the first piece. Smooth the pieces until they are securely stuck. Follow the traced lines of the cross to cut out the book mark. Punch a hole at the top of the cross and add a loop of yarn to finish the book mark.

You can find many inexpensive already prepared crafts at the Oriental Trading Company. Simple crafts start at $1.95 per dozen. More complicated crafts are also available. Here are a few pictures of what is available.

VBS Wreath Craft
God is Love Craft

bullitVase with Cascading Flowers


bullit toilet tissue roll
bullit 9 x 12 green, yellow and white construction paper
bullit tissue paper in a variety of colors
bullit crayons
bullit glue
bullit stapler

What to do:

  1. Roll a sheet of yellow and green construction paper together so that you have a 9-inch long roll that will fit inside the toilet tissue roll. Staple the construction paper roll so that it doesn't unroll. Staple only the part that will fit inside the toilet tissue roll.
  2. Cut half inch wide strips to form a fringe from the other end of the construction paper roll. These will be the stems of your flowers.
  3. Insert the construction paper roll into the toilet tissue roll and staple in place.
  4. Cut white construction paper to cover the toilet tissue roll (It will cover up your staples.) Color the paper as you desire, then glue it to the toilet tissue roll.
  5. Cut the tissue paper into 1 1/2 inch squares.
  6. Stand the toilet paper tube up so that the construction paper stems cascade down around the outside.
  7. Crumple a square of tissue paper and glue to the tip of each stem.
