Tips for making a dotted suncatcher

  • If you’re creating with a large group of kids, you can roll the contact paper across the workspace. Then cut smaller top pieces and put each child’s name on them before cutting them out.
  • Use the grid on the back of the contact paper to help you draw the cross shape.
  • When choosing ink colors, make sure to use colors that work well together. This will help any overlapping colors from looking brown.
  • Punch a hole in the top of the cross and use them for bookmarks too!
