Sun Catchers, Translucent Wax Paper

Delicate yet stunning, these window decorations allow light to filter through producing a stained-glass effect without the stained-glass price. The layers of paper overlap to show hidden geometric patterns. The translucent waxed-papers are special because they resist fading by the sun. To keep the creations light and airy, only a smidgen of acid-free glue is used during assembly.
