This is a Angel Ornament that I have created from paper. The image you see on this Angel is from the Fred She Said Winter Bird Series Digital Collection that can be found here
. The Chickadee image was used for this Angel, but any of the birds would look absolutely lovely on this ornament. This is a lovely gift or hostess thank you item for all those special people in your life. Why not make up a bunch of these for your Christmas tree or display on a stand as a table centerpiece. So many uses for these beautiful Angels.
NO TEMPLATE NEEDED:
The base is half of a 7-3/4 inch circle and the arms are half of a 4
inch circle. The half circles are curled into a cone shape and glued. That's it-easy peasy.
Here is another Angel in a different configuration. This is actually the first one I made. I cut out my pieces, ran it through the cuttlebug with the swiss dot folder. I punched the border with the Martha Stewart Corner Gothic Arches punch. Stickles were applied to the bottom of the skirt and the bottom of the sleeves. I glued on a small Christmas bulb for the head, used a pipe cleaner for the halo, and tied a bow and attached at the neck.
This is the snowflake Angel. The spellbinders snowflake die was used for the wings and the Martha Stewart Arctic snowflake punch was for the decoration. I sprayed glimmer mist on the snowflake embossed angel. I glittered all the snowflakes with Martha Stewart glitter.
This one was my attempt at making an Angel that would look antique or vintage. After cutting out my pieces, I used my decorative scissors to cut a fancy edge (yes, those scissors still come in handy even after all the punches and die cuts!), I ran it through the cuttlebug with the Textile Texture embossing folder then sponged on some Rangers Tea Dye ink. I used mica flakes for the glitter around the borders. Martha Stewart Branch and Snowflake punches were used for the decorative treatment at the neck.
This angel is called my "Woodland" Angel-Supplies for this are Martha Stewart Branch Punch and Sizzx Leaves die, Cuttlebug Leafy Branch embossing folder. This was sponged with Rangers tea dye distress ink. The leaves and branches were sponged with Vintage Photo distress ink and diamond stickles applied.
For this Angel, I cut out my pieces, punched the edges with the Martha Stewart Corner Gothic Arches Punch. I used white feathers on my wings and stickles and pearls for the borders.
