Durable transparent coloured glassen paper is traditionally used for kite making.  This semi-transparent paper is ideal for making window stars, transparencies, lanterns and many other creative projects; and it is food safe!

Glassen paper has a 'waxy' feeling and is often mistakenly referred to as Wax or Waxey paper. It's most popular name is Kite Paper, due to its strength and versatility. Interestingly,  it is made without wax, the paper properties are quite different to wax paper, and the waxy-feeling is an intentional result of the way the paper is made.

Glassen paper is made from paper pulp that undergoes a special 'making' process. It is not coated with anything nor does it have anything 'extra' added to the pulp. The process itself creates the qualities in the paper - durability, transparency, shine, and the waxy feeling.

Our Kite paper is certified as safe to wrap foodstuffs and is water-repellant (not water-proof). This means everything in it is non-toxic and yes it will indeed biodegrade, and is vegan-safe!

Window Stars

Gorgeous creations have come from using this paper in our home! Christmas stars and Birthday window for our youngest’ 1st Birthday. Great and easy to use pad of wax paper.


My first purchase of the kite paper and I LOVE it. It comes in a pad, which is super convenient to keep neatly all together. We have started making window stars and it’s a lot of fun and a great mindfulness activity. I’ll definitely add more kite paper to my next order as I can see how versatile it is for so many art and craft activities.

I used to make kite paper stars at school. I'd forgotten about them. I love them just as much now. This paper is flawless and beautiful

Lovely quality. Large stars!

We used this paper to make beautiful bright window stars for our seasonal decoration. I was actually pleasantly surprised that paper this size can make quite large stars as they are often folded on the diagonal. It also means that the paper can be cut in halves or even quarters so even more stars of varying sizes can be made.

So nice

Really glad I got this paper. I’m not crafty but it’s been perfect for learning to make sun catchers, and the colours are so bright.

Star crafts

Wonderful shop with many options for my little ones. Beautiful crafting kite paper, well notified when product was in stock and very quick delivery! Made beautiful window stars for themselves and friends.


Lovely little family business with a great selection of fun and educational wooden. Our kids loved the coloured waxed kite paper - great for making origami window decorations. We'll be back to shop here again! Thanks
