5 Little Angels

Anything but a card #8

After making so many cards for Christmas I wanted to go 3 dimensional. 
Come join in and play.

Here are 3 angels bringing joy. I used the squares die cuts from windows - as a base for each letter. I attached lace on the bottom to make them seem to float on a fluffy cloud. I used white netting to stuff the sleeves and the skirt, just to finish  adding some support and to cover glue dots and smears.

I used a fine marker for the dot eyes, but they have smeared from handling. I need a fine tip sharpie.  The fuzzy pink haired angel was the first sample angel I made.

Changing papers and adding details makes this a fun project, even for a 7 year old.

I want to give every one an angel - but I would need help. It took 2 days to complete these 5 little angels.


Angels can fly because they carry no burdens.

  2. All your angels are so precious!

  3. This is WOW....that had to be soooo much fun. I'm glad you told us how long it took. I hope I get a grandchild before I'm too old so I can make things like this. Heck, I bet some other children like me would love to make these.


Thanks for stopping by. Comments are appreciated.
