After reading A Bad Case of the Stripes, we drew our self portrait with a pencil and then traced over it with a Sharpie. We glued strips of tissue paper over it in a pattern to create the stripes. I didn't have the kind of tissue paper that bleeds but if you do you could spray the tissue paper with water and then remove it once the color was transferred. The picture would be a little better to see. Either way they were fun to make.
