Vintage Angel Ornaments

 This project was a cinch and the results are beautiful!

Angel ornament from book pages

First I started with an old, yellowed, paperback dictionary.

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

Check out what you can do with the rest of the book.

Next, I stapled 6 cones together at the tips.

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

I used gold but any color will do. 

Many thanks to the Graphics Fairy's beautiful images. 

I chose an angel, printed it on card stock and cut out only the head and arms.

I then used the glitter glue again to highlight the wings and headband of the angel.

Next, I hot glued the angel to the 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.

This made a beautiful vintage paper ornament!
