6. Above

6A above. 7. Small hole is neck hole.

1. Print on the heaviest paper possible.

2 Cut out the angel base. Cut on the top of the halo and around the outside of the entire angel. Then go back and cut the 2 lines that go to under the chin. Stop where the line stops. If you make a mistake, stop and tape it from the back now. Put your name on the back along the round edge now.

3. Cut out the wings.

4. You do not need to color the angel except for the hair and halo. It looks great if you glitter the halo! You can color the wings or angel robe if you want to add the time.
If you color or glitter, do it now!

5. Put glue in the entire Glue area on the angel base (in the dotted triangular area)

6. Bring the unglued straight side around and over the glued straight side all the way over to the dashed line (Match). Pop or poke the head up and out of the way as you roll the unglued side over the glued side. Do not bend or fold the neck. It will go where it belongs all by itself with just a little bit of help.( If you do not match the bottom edges perfectly and a piece sticks out, just trim it off so it stands well.)

6A. If the glue does not immediately stick, help it along with a piece of tape across the seam inside the cone shape you just made.

7. If you want it to be a standing angel or treetop angle, skip this step.
To make it a hanging tree ornament, just cut 6 inches of yarn or string. Make a basic loop by simply bringing the ends of the yarn or string together. Inside the cone, put a glob of glue on the seam (or nearer center back) at or near the neck hole. Inside the cone, push the loop through the hole. STOP when there's about a half inch left to go and put the ends of the yarn or string in the glob of glue. Lay the string or yarn loop next to the head, so it does NOT get glued into the wings by mistake.

8. Put glue on the glue space on the wings.

9. Stick the wings on the back of the angel about where it says "wings here" but the area may vary depending on how well you overlapped to the dashed line. Help each child align the center of the wings with the center of the back of the head. ( The bottom of the wings can touch the table. ) Put a finger inside the cone and a different finger outside the cone on the wing glue area to press and stick them together.


10. Talk about the angels in the Christmas story! Who is your angel?
