Christmas in July Starburst Framelits Angels

Welcome back to Christmas in July week. 

Today I'll be sharing how I made these cute little angels.

They can be used as ornaments, or package trims. 
I made them in two different sizes. The two angels in the back are
larger than the one in the front. 

Click on any of the photos to enlarge the picture. 

I used Starburst Framelits dies to make the angels. 
I'm going to show you how to make the large angels first then I'll give you the 
info on how to make the smaller angel. 
 To make the angel skirt. 

Starting with the largest starburst framelit cut one using cardstock or
designer paper. Fold the starburst in half. 
Open the cardstock back up fold in half again. Use a bone folder to get good creases. 

Okay here is the only tricky part (I promise). Open the cardstock up and

grasp it at the top where the center of the folds are. Now push in the left and right sides. 

This is a basic origami fold.
Now if you were successful you will have a triangle shape. 
Here is an inside view of what the cardstock will look like once
the folds are completed. 
To make the wings
Use the 3rd largest starburst framelit, and repeat the same steps that
you used to create the skirt. This is actually the fun part as you 
can mix and match cardstock and designer paper, to create the skirt and wings.

The head for the large angel is made with one inch circle punch.

The hallo is made with 1 1/4 scallop punch.

 Apply mono adhesive to the wings.

Adhere the wings to the sides of the skirt piece. One flap of the wing will go on the

inside skirt, and the other flap will go on the outside skirt.

Here is a photo of the back so you can see how the wings are placed.

Add the face using one glue dot on the bottom part of the circle then

adhere on the top part of the skirt.

The scallop punched hallo is attached to the back of the skirt using a glue dot.

I added a silver ribbon bow just under the face.

If you want to stamp the skirt make sure to it before putting on the wings.

You can also add a tie in the back to hang the ornament. I used crochet thread, but you

could also use linen thread.

For the smaller angel use the third largest starburst framelit for the angel skirt, and fourth largest

to make the wings.

The smallest starburst framelit can be used to make the hallo.

The face is made with 3/4 circle punch.

I hope you enjoyed today's post. I think the angels have been my favorite

project for Christmas in July week. Hmmmmmm lets see what will

on tomorrow's post.
