The first thing we did was to cut out two pieces of wax paper the size our our shoe box. I also cut out four little figures on black stock paper. Meanwhile, the girls ripped up red, orange and cream colored tissue paper that would become our fire.
The next thing we did was spread some glue all over the wax paper. Then we stuck down our figures and put the tissue paper (red on bottom, orange on the next level and cream toward the top) on top of that. We then covered the entire thing by the other wax paper.
Then, cut a rectangle hole in the bottom of the box, stick glue down and blue your wax paper to the box. When it dries, we added flame-less tea lights to the inside box to give a really cool effect. They flicker, so it really looks like a fire inside. I was so excited about the outcome.
