Christmas Angels

Christmas craft is well underway at preschool, where I volunteered my time last Thursday. I loved these little angels - so simple and effective.

First draw up this template and cut out of very light card. Cut the outer circle with fancy scissors, to give an edged effect, and the short lines and inner shape with straight scissors. The preschool then painted their shapes, but I just used scrapbooking paper.

The simply curve the paper around and slide the short cuts on opposite sides of the circle together to form the cone, with the left over sections forming the wings. Sounds tricky, but really is straightforward.

I'm planning to make some out of fabric next...
