I went through a period where I was making these little angle ornaments. I tried all different materials. The template to make your own angels is at the bottom of this post and the instructions on how to put them together are [here].
I fused fabric to cardboard to create these angels. You only need little scraps of fabric. For some angels I used felt as hair and for others you can use unraveled wool.
For this angel is wanted to see if I could do it with only craft paper. It worked just great. So this way it is a project that mom’s can do with their children. I have a paper crimper and used it on the hair and dress to give it dimension. I imagine that flower pictures from a catalog would also make wonderful clothes.
This one was very easy to make. I only cut one body piece and no back piece for the hair. I used decoupage glue and glued the cut out parts onto crumpled tinfoil. When it is dry, cut out within about 1/8 of an inch of the shape. Gently fold tinfoil to the back of the piece. Now put glue on the seond side and put onto crumpled tinfoil. Assemble like the other angels.
Contact Paper Angel
As I was continuing with my experiments I found some contact paper that was mostly skin colored with a few pattern. Now how to put it together was a different story. So I decided they would look lovely on a CD.
