WHAT IS KITE PAPER?
Kite paper is a type of wax paper in different colors that allows the light to show through with a gentle warmth. Kite paper is thin like tissue paper, yet firmer and stronger and with a translucent gloss that makes the light almost seem to glow.
Because it allows light to pass through showing off colors like stained glass, it makes a beautiful window craft decoration,, such as translucent window scenes and kite paperwindow stars. There are many variations of color combinations, folding and cutting used to create unique and stunning stars and it’s a great geometry activity too.
Traditionally this paper was used for making kites and still is in many places. But today, it is often used for paper crafts, as well. Kite paper can be used for many kinds of creative artwork beyond kites and window stars: decorate lanterns, making hanging stars or garland, snowflakes, pinwheels and your own creations!
