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
7. If you want it to be a
standing angel or treetop angle, skip this step.
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?
