DIY: Tissue Paper Stained Glass
Tissue paper crafts suck! There, I said it. I’m even going to go out on a limb here and say you probably agree with me.
We both know that brightly colored flimsy filmy paper stuff is the center point of craft suckitude '“ it makes crafts that only a third grader would get excited about, and brings back those frustrating memories of trying to get layers of the delicate stuff to hold together through gobs of Elmer’s school glue.

Both require two (again, literally two) items: tissue paper and glue or adhesive. For decoupage, rip tissue paper into shreds then put a base coat of glue on your item. Place tissue paper over item. Add more glue. And let '˜er dry.
For stained glass, just stick up some colored tissue paper in designs or layer blocks of tissue paper on window glass. For a true stained glass feel, cut out a border or frame in a thicker black paper. Use spray adhesive, or laundry starch or clear tape to keep it firmly in place. You could do this during a commercial break fer crissakes.
