this is the thread i got the plans from. i modified mine a bit, but you should be able to scale yours down and print them just fine: Manta
here's another free set of plans for a 1 meter DLG: Mimi (not not Ralphs Mimi)
and Adams micro glider too: 22" SAL
there's a bunch more floating around.

Eric, what glider do you have?

solo clipper, Mikes link is more handy than anything i could offer, 99% of my past tissue jobs were just for printed tissue graphics or a simple one sided wing covering. i just used spray adhesive and secured one tissue peice at a time and shrunk it a bit with water. seemed to work ok, though the tissue shrunk too much in some areas that caused some twisting/warping.

i think i'm going to order some durobatics and use that as the skin for the next wing. the tissue allows all the building imperfections to come through on the airfoil surface. the durobatics will give a lot of streangth to the wing as well as maintain a more constistant airfoil shape. they're still selling that stuff, right?
