Vintage Angel Ornaments

4:20:00 PM

 This project was a cinch and the results are beautiful!

First I started with an old, yellowed, paperback dictionary...
does anyone even use a dictionary anymore?

I tore out pages, rolled them into cones and glued them leaving the torn edges.

Next I stapled 6 cones together at the tips.

I applied glitter glue along the yellowed edges of the paper.

Thanks to the Graphics Fairy's beautiful images, I copied an angel and cut out only the head and arms.

I used the glitter glue to highlight the wings and headband of the angel... and attached her to the 6 cones.

I attached a circle of silver card stock to the back of the ornament for stability and attached a gold string through the opening.

A beautiful vintage paper ornament!
