Instead of fusing the punched out tissue trees between wax and red paper, we just glued them straight to the paper. I mixed glue and water (equal parts). I let my son dab the glue with the brush while I quickly followed with the tissue trees. When he got tired of helping I finished myself….You can tell by the spacing of the trees who dabbed the glue (ha).
After we covered the whole roll of red paper with trees, we pasted whole sheets of the cute button tissue to the brown paper. We just centered the tissue on the brown paper, we didn’t paint glue everywhere, but just enough to hold it down. (Around the outside and some in the middle)
and one final thing…
If you happened to be admiring the tree shirt in the photos…the tutorial can be found here.
