Paper Angel Ornaments

For Friday‘s first ornament I have made these four cone type Paper Angel Ornaments.  I try to include all types of embellishments possible for my projects and these include a little of everything.

It has been a busy ornament week but I have lots of goodies yet to come.  If you want to see previous Ornament Week projects, see them here.

What you will need

        • Various scraps of cardstock
        • vellum
        • Pen
        • glue gun and liquid glue
Paper Selection

There is no limit to what paper can be used for these adorable angels.  Patterned paper was used for the first on.  The cut outs and the drawing on the others would make a pattern look funny.  I used a silver vellum for under the green one.  You could also use vellum under the Merry Christmas Angel if you want (The yellow piece is for the vellum and work for either.)  Use your imagination.

Cutting

I used a purple gel pen for all the writing but you can use anything that shows up on your paper.  The blue halo is missing on the angel in the pictures above (OOPS) but I fixed both files to correct that.  

One of the paper angels has double wings.  If you want that just cut another set of whatever wings you are using.  The wings are interchangeable too.

I combined all the little pieces on one mat.  To see how to do that watch my video.

Assembly

As I mentioned earlier, the wings are interchangeable although the angels go best with the wings that are with them in the files.

First attach the vellom to the green angel.  You can also use the vellum with the pink angel.  Just cut an extra yellow piece.   Be sure to use plenty of glue and spread it around so that the cutouts curve with the cone and stay attached.

Then curl the cones to allow them to get used to being curled.  But a dab of glue gun glue on the point and join the angels in the back.

Attach the wings with the glue gun and bend them back a little bit so that they look right.

You can put ribbons or ornament hangers through the halo or make the paper angels into tiny tree toppers. Enjoy
