A paper Christmas angel ornament is such a pretty project to make for this years tree. Virginia has created this ornament and shows the directions step by step, making it almost fool proof for us craft challenged individuals.
1 Sheet of card stock or a heavier paper Ribbon and Needle Bead Hole Punch Scoreboard
Note: makes 1 angel.
With paper in landscape mode … using your scoreboard or ruler, score your paper at the half inch mark .
Cut 2 inches off the longest edge of the paper… twice to create the wings.
Fold all three pieces of paper in a fan like manner….fold on the score lines.
The first fold should be away from you. This way the last fold will be folded away from you as well….and you won’t have any raw edges on the front of your Christmas Angel Ornament.
Using a hole punch, punch
holes on the top of all three sheets, evenly.
Take all three pieces of your Christmas Angel and over-lap them on the ends. This is where folding as directed above will really help out, and your holes will match up.
Ribbon … use it on the roll then cut it after it’s laced through the holes.
Lace the ribbon through the holes… including the double layered holes.
Once you have the ribbon laced through all the holes … pull it very tight.
Once you have it tight and you can see the wings form… tie a knot.
You can use any size bead for the head, but make sure your bead has a hole big enough to get both strands of the ribbon through.
Once you have the ribbon through the bead hole, tie another knot to hold the head in place.
I made my ribbon above the bead 3 inches long, but again depending on what you will use this Christmas Angel Ornament for the length is up to you.
Tie it off at the top, and voila’…your done !
