Paper Angels with Botanical Wings

Paper Angels must rival the paper chain as the world’s easiest Holiday Craft  — ever.  Make just one Paper Angel and it’s a win; but, but, I dare you to stop there. 

I find Paper Angels to be addictive and so very pretty. They’re the most simple craft because just about any paper will do and these work for any age. I love them as a kids craft, for adults and are ideal for groups — again, because of their simplicity.  Paper angles make pretty tree decorations. Make a “choir of angels” and hang these as garland or attach to presents instead of ribbons.  See full post below.
