Fabulous Flower Angel



This little angel can hang on a tree or package. You will need the Fabulous Flowers stamp set and your favorite color ink.







You'll also need silver or gold cord, 1 large pearl and one medium pearl, a paper piercer or tapestry needle. The halo piece is optional - in this case I used a silver filigree circle .



Not pictured is sticky strip.





Stamp the large flower 3 times and the pointed flower once.


You will cut out these pieces using the pattern (in black) below. Use 1, 2, and 4. Cut two petals (top and bottom) from the pointed flower - this will be the wing piece.
Using sticky strip, create cone shapes from the large flower pieces. Fold the wing piece in the center.















Make a hole in the center of each cone piece.





Cut a 12" piece of cord and fold it in half - knot the end making a loop. Thread the loop through the cone pieces adding the small pearl between the upper two cones, and the large pearl at the top. (I bent a small piece of wire in half to help thread the loop through the holes in the cones and pearls.)

You will need to add your halo piece on top of the pearl. Twist the cord into a knot above the halo. You might want to add a little crystal effects or liquid glue around the top knot to keep everything in place.

Attach the wings with liquid glue or a small piece of sticky strip.

You can add glitter to the edges to sparkle this up.

What do you think! Easy?

  17. I just discovered the 3D challenge over at SCS and it led me back here to your lovely angel and your blog that's so full of creativity. Much to my surprise, I find that you're a fellow INKredible Inker! I just participated in my first color challenge this week, so maybe we'll cross paths once in a while. Nice to 'meet' you!
