Tissue paper hand plaques

Tissue paper hand plaques

These plaques of Ted’s hands started out as coasters as a gift for Father’s Day. We are posting them now because, well, they worked better as something to frame and have on the wall rather than for putting drinks on and also Ted was so excited that he couldn’t wait until Father’s Day to show them to his dad – so here they are. 

Materials

  • An old coaster
  • Tissue paper in two colours
  • PVA glue
  • Scissors
  • Paint brush

How we made it

  1. Cover top of coaster in PVA glue –  use a small amount to prevent tissue paper from wrinkling
  2. Place glue side down on square of tissue paper and smooth over to remove any bubbles
  3. Cut corners of tissue paper to help make folding corners neat
  4. Glue round edge of tissue paper
  5. Fold tissue paper up and onto base of coaster
  6. Draw around hand and cut out
  7. Turn coaster over and glue over top with small amount of PVA
  8. Place tissue paper hand on top and smooth over
  9. When dry, glue over top of coaster and sides
  10. Leave to dry on a pot to prevent sides from sticking
