Step 4.

 

Peel the backing off the other sheet of contact paper  and place sticky side down onto the sheet you just decorated.  This will create a sandwich sealing the design together.

Step 5.

 

Now you need to create (2) leaf shaped borders for your sun catcher. First, fold a sheet of orange construction paper in half. Then fold in half again.

Step 7.

 

Cut out the leaf shape. When you unfold your paper you will have a full leaf “window” in your paper. Open the folded paper and add glue around the leaf all the way to the edges as shown.
