Free Tutorial - Christmas Angels Paper Dolls

You know, it's never too early to get started on your Christmas crafting, so here's a fun little project I created to get you and your kids inspired!  These adorable paper doll angels are printed onto card stock and then coloured with coloured pencils, though you can use paint, crayons, felt markers, glitter, crystals, etc. to pretty them up.  They're held together with tiny mini brads which enable them to stand up on their own.  These can easily be stored for future use simply by removing the mini brads, gently flattening and layering each one between a sheet of tissue paper (if you're planning on adding glitter).  A perfect gift to make for someone special that can be cherished every year!
I am also providing a set of already-coloured angels which just need to be cut out and embellished with glitter (if desired) for those of you who'd like them.  Here's what you'll need:
Printer and Card Stock
Coloured pencils, felt markers, paint, crayons, etc.
Sharp pair of scissors
Mini brads
Awl or thick needle
Clear-drying craft glue and a Q-tip
Glitter, flat-backed crystals, etc. (optional)

 Please read through instructions first before beginning this project.   
Print each template separately onto card stock. 

Colour or paint the dolls.  (Skip this step if you've printed the already-coloured set.)
  Cut out angels.
There are many ways for you to embellish your paper angels; a simple way is to add glitter to their wings, flowers, leaves, etc.  Start by applying a fine layer of glue onto the area with a Q-tip.  Too much glue may cause the card stock to warp or buckle.

Then sprinkle glitter over the layer of glue, allow to dry thoroughly and tap off excess.
Pierce each of the 4 dots (two on either side) near the top of the straight edges with a thick needle or awl.
Fold the sides towards the back of the doll and connect pierced holes together with brads, opening the prongs and laying them flat on the inside of the cone.

And voila, that's all there is to it!  Hope you'll have fun making these!

  6. Hi,
    The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it does not disappoint me as much as this particular one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I truly thought you would probably have something useful to say. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something that you could possibly fix if you were not too busy searching for attention. If you want to read New Year Quotes please have a look at this.
    Thanks

Using this card you can easily cash out funds by using any local ATM. The amount of cash will depend upon the current rate of bitcoin. Imagine buying a bitcoin at a certain rate and then withdrawing it on a double rate.
