Instructions for making the Torn Paper Rainbow Craft

Begin by tearing the cardstock paper into small pieces, approximately 1 cm in size, for the torn paper craft. We recommend using cardstock paper for its thickness, which creates a lovely texture along the torn edges.

Tearing Red Paper for Torn Paper Craft

Tear paper of 6 colours for the rainbow – Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and Violet. For this craft, we’ll need a variety of vibrant colours.

Download the Free Rainbow Template and print it on a thick sheet of paper. We suggest using 120GSM printing paper for this craft.
