Faux Stained Glass project

Many of you may not know that I have started helping out at a children's church on Sundays.  This was one of the first projects we did.  The lesson was the story of Abraham, so we did some star projects.  Also, the church has been holding sermons featuring the stained glass windows in the church, so this project was appropriate.
     I used my Cricut Explore to cut the black design from cardstock.  The star measures about 9" wide.  We attached the die cut star to the sticky side of clear contac paper, then used bits of tissue paper to add color "stained glass" to the sticky side.  The finished result really looks like stained glass from the front side.  The project was easy and simple for the kids to do.  I hope everybody had fun!  I had seen this project on multiple websites, each with a little variation.  My variation was using my Cricut Explore and a Cricut image to cut the design.  I love having my subscription!  I get tons of "free" images to use!
