Tissue Paper Star Christmas Ornament Craft Kit
cool looking in the window and fun to assemble
All the pieces were pre-cut making it easier on me. I have 32 students in my class.

Not a great project
The stars were to hard to place together because they were too sticky. Hard for adults to line up perfectly.

Easy for toddlers and looks nice
Purchased for my home daycare children to make during Christmas. Very easy to do. Put wax paper under the acetate star to prevent sticking to table or other papers. They loved it!

I bought this craft for great-grandchildren to have something on days when school is out. I put one together and is was fun, quick and easy! Large enough for a Christmas tree ornament.

It took a long time to set it up
I bought this for my 5 year old to teach him that we need to give presents as well and not just receive. So, he was to make these for family members. The paper it came with were stuck together. We had to manually separate them before starting on our project. I bought 3 packages of these stars. Some of them were fine but the majority were stuck together. The black part of the stars are also really sticky. You have to be extra careful when sticking them together. You can not take it apart once it's stuck. It'll rip the art project. The end product is very nice but it's a lot of work. Not the kind of project if your looking to do something easy. This was time consuming.

I bought this craft to use in my son's first grade class. It's very cute but comes up short. For each craft it includes 2 black foam stars (self-adhesive), 1 clear acetate star, tissue squares, and a cord for hanging. The directions say to lay the tissue squares on the clear plastic star. The first problem is that the tissue is so stuck together that to do with little kids you have to take time to separate the tissue first. I think I'll cut my own tissue as it will take less time than trying to separate it. My other suggestion for improvement would be to include a second clear acetate star instead of having the kids cover one side with a glue glaze. It looks better, is less messy, and will last longer. I'm heading to the craft store to see if I can find clear acetate to use for the other side. This is not the easy open-and-use it craft that Oriental Trading is known for.
