Jazz has been super busy creating scrap angels – this time they are paper. She asked me to pick one set of pictures and post one but they’re all so creative that I decided we should see them all. The descriptions all come from Jazz. Enjoy - I sure did! Thanks for sharing Bonnie. You are amazing!

I have been playing with scrap angels, but out of paper this time. there will be 5 sets. would you mind posting the one of your choice, on the crafts sites? I will write an explanation with each page.

top left: the wings are made from wire-edged craft ribbon, with the wire removed.
top right: feather wings
middle left: her wings are made of a paper bow.
middle right: maple leaf wings
bottom left: oak leaf body
bottom center: the ribbon is glued to a paper circle that is folded in half. she has arms that are a loose knot & dangly ribbon legs.
bottom right: bee, using an egg punch as the body.

some of the heads are punched from business envelopes - free paper.
the bodies are circles folded over. if it wasn't 2-sided paper, I just cut a section to glue down before I glued the 'dress' flaps down.

This is my favorite page. I adore the little angel top left. maybe it is the jaunty way its hat sits on the head.

top left: could be for new year's or as a party invite. just include party message/info inside the folded wings. the clock hands are made with a punch. or if the info was known, set the hands for the time when the recipient was born.
top right: snow angel.
center: flying heart for Valentine's day
middle left: body is made from 2 punched mittens, with one reversed. face is a button.
center right: one for St. Pat's
middle: Easter angel, body is made with an egg punch
bottom left: spring angel, with a flower as the body
center bottom: this is a pennant for a garland. letters can be punched, stamped or written on them to spell out greetings, etc.
bottom right: fall/halloween angel

More ideas:
Legs: cut 2, 3" pf 1/4" ribbon, Tie a know, 1/2" from one end of each piece. Glue ends between dress pieces.

Hair:
- wrap embroidery floss, crochet thread, etc., several times around 2 fingers. Slip wraps off & with a separate piece, tie in the middle. Glue to top of head.

Bows: (can be made from)
- punched
- ribbon
- baker's twine
- embroidery floss
- raffia
- rickrack
- torn fabric strip
- burlap threads
- gold braid

Heads:
- punched
- buttons
- jewels
- glass pebbles
- large sequins
- coins

Halos:
- punched, using gold or silver Christmas card backs
- glitter pipe cleaners
- rings from the bridal section
- lace scallops
- punched crowns

Embellishments:
- ribbon roses
- ribbon bows
- stickers
- small flowers
- ribbon arms & legs
- jewels

Cone angel: cut a circle in half, & roll into a cone shape. Add head, etc.

Wings:
- punched or cut circles
- small paper coilies
- shapes: stars, leaves, etc.
- ribbon bows
- paper bows
- feathers
- craft ribbon

Paper sources:
- scrapbook paper
- envelopes
- greeting cards
- Christmas cards
- paper doilies
- book pages
- magazines
- junk mail
- calendars
- tissue boxes
- brown bags
- paint chips
- sheet music
- maps
- food labels

As you can see, I think the paper angels have more possibilities for tags, invites, little messages to slip into a card or letter, as thank you notes, etc.

I would be interested in seeing what others come up with. (((hugs)))

I got a little carried away.
top left: patriotic angel
center: this is for a birthday angel. put the number of dots for how old the person is. in this case the person was 2/6 or 26. it has folded wings so a short message can be written inside.
top right: wings are a folded 4" paper doily
middle left: ginger angel
center: leaf punches for a fall angel
middle right: playing card angle
bottom angel: simple angel
bottom right: wings made with a wing punch & glitter pipe cleaner halo

these are mostly winter angels, using different punches for wings.
some crowns are made with a lace border punch & cut into sections.

more playing around. the one with a tag body can be used as a gift tag.

3rd row: flying angel - just fold the wings off a little to give the illusion of flying.

they can be glued to ribbon, etc., for a sweet garland.

the one at the bottom is glued to a craft stick, to use as a bookmark.

Caroline is such an angel herself, posting my craziness. I get started on something, & won't stop till I am totally out of ideas. Thank you for taking the time to post these for me.
Thanks, ladies, for the kind comments. If you all make any, please post pictures for us to see. (((hugs)))
