This month, I tried to use more kite paper and less silhouette in my June window transparency. Also, with Father’s Day being the only holiday of the month, I decided to use a fairy theme instead of a holiday theme, because Sola is obsessed with fairies. I did double layers of each of the kite paper pieces and then slid the second piece slightly off to the right of the the first piece to create the illusion of depth in the transparency. I used the same paper cutting technique that I blogged about in January.

What have you done to bring the joy of the season into your homeschooling space? Do your children still believe in fairies?

So now I have this free St. Patrick’s day window transparency template to share with you. As always, it is free for your personal use only. Also, […]
I created another window transparency for Valentines Day that I thought I’d share with you. I chose this particular design because I noticed an odd trend with Valentines Day designs, they all seem to use spring or summer settings! That is really weird when you think of about it, since Valentines Day is in February. […]
