How to make these simple paper cross crafts
Use scissors to cut paper strips from the colored paper in sunset colors.
We picked colors from yellow to pink and different shades of blue. It’s not important to cut strips in exactly the same width. Once you cut them, place them aside for later.
Fold the white cardstock in half. Press only on the middle part.
Using a pencil, draw half of a cross.
Cut the cross out from the middle, making sure the frame remains uncut.
Take a second piece of white cardstock and place cross frame on top. Trace the cross on bottom cardstock.
Apply glue on the white cardstock and glue paper strips over the cross outline, from lighter to darker. Keep gluing until you cover cross outline completely.
Apply glue to the cardstock with the cross shape cut out. Make sure to add the glue to the side with the pencil markings.
Press the cross frame and glue over the paper with paper strips. Cut out extra paper strips to finish.
