I bought this for my Sunday school class (5-6th gr). The finished project is just beautiful! I'd like to give advice for the previous reviews has some complaints and taking those into consideration, and having experience with artwork, I had no problems. I also had left over and I did the same project w/my son & his friend, both 8 y/o.
First, I used both Elmers School glue (thinned down as directed) and Aleene's Tacky glue (quick drying for the cross assembly).
The direction state to place the tissue, then apply the diluted glue. I say no, paint the acetate FIRST w/glue, then carefully apply the tissue as you wish arranged. Don't worry that the tissue isn't fully saturated yet. Just do it! Then, after that step, gently apply an application of the diluted glue OVER the tissue. Don't worry that it's white, it will dry clear, and this way you will have a shellac type of coating on it.
To expedite the drying process, I brought in a hair dryer with the diffuser attachment and went over the pcs. The diffuser kept it from blowing all over, and it dried rather quickly.
Then we used the tacky glue to assemble the rest, and I instructed the class not to hold it by the hanger until it was totally dried, after they are home.
We were finished with the whole project in 45 minutes, it's an hour class, and that still left me enough time to read them a story about the Resurrection and the Accention!!
Enjoy!!
Pros: Assembly, quality, Age appropriateness, beautiful finished product, nice size

I cant remember the last time I gave a negative review on the Oriental trading, but this product was definitely not what I was expecting. This was a craft that I had planned on doing for Easter for our preschoolers at church but decided to buy it on oriental trading as a kit to make that particular Sunday a little easier. Well I went to put together a simple craft last Sunday and saw that instead of making the craft easier by using contact paper to stick the tissue squares to, which is how I would have handmade them on my own, this craft requires the use of glue at multiple stages therefor making this a very messy and wet craft for preschoolers. The only thing that makes this craft easier is that I don't have to cut out my own crosses out of foam paper but that is canceled out by the extra work needed with all the glue .
Cons: Age appropriateness, Assembly

The biggest problem is this project cannot be done in one setting because it needs to dry. If you are looking for a quick project, this is not it. If you had an hour or more you could do this project.
Cons: Assembly
