    Welcome to the last Pals Blog Hop of 2014. This month we want to help you start your holiday wish list by sharing projects featuring our favorite Stampin’ Up! papers, stamps, tools and accessories. Get your wish list ready as you move along through the blog hop.

    You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from #36 Martie Pollard at The Crafty Bandit on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the project.

    So this year, I’ve made a LOT of handmade ornaments.

    I mean a lot … using up ribbon scraps, last year’s Christmas cards and also something brand new, like these angels I’m featuring today made with Christmas sheet music.

    I have a thing for angels. And this year I feel like I’m really enjoying my love for angels more than ever before with this Christmas season’s crafts.

    I’ve made this size ornament which measures about 4.5″ by 4.5″ as well as an 8″ tall table top angel and a 16″ angel you could use as a tree topper or a statement piece on your buffet serving piece.

    Here’s how I made them….

    You’ll need circle punches in your desired size. For tiny ruffles, I used the 1 1/4″ circle punch, and for the larger wing ruffles, I used 1 3/4″ circle punch, and for the larger angels, I used the 2.5″ circle punch. You’ll also need a hot glue gun, mod podge (or something similar), poster board, Christmas sheet music (I used old hymnals), Stampin’ Up! ribbon in desired colors and finishes, round wood or other material for the heads…. and a whole lot of time! Also for the larger angels, I purchased the cone shapes from a craft store because the poster board is not sturdy enough to support the weight of the larger angels.

    To make the beautiful wings, punch out a LOT of circles from your music. Because the SU punches are so great, you can punch several sheets of music at the same time. Then, you want to create this beautiful shape out of the circles by hot glueing them into place. Repeat until finished.

    For the cone base of the ornaments, simply cut out your poster board and decoupage the sheet music on both sides, then hot glue into your cone shape. The larger angel bases are trickier because you have to decoupage the inside of an already-made cone. You use the same process with the wings, except you only need to decoupage the back of the wings. The front will be covered with your “ruffles”.

    For the wings, glue in a pattern like I did with this large angel pictured here.

    This is the largest angel. I made this one for my mother for her birthday a few weeks ago. She’s magnificent, isn’t she?!

    These angels look beautiful on the tree. The satin Stampin’ Up! ribbon is my personal favorite on these ornaments.

      Spectacular, Natalie! Thank you for all the beautiful photos. How clever to use the music sheets…great job!

    7. I do love my angel and I am very thankful for my angel gift for my Birthday! It is so appropriate, because I have had a “thing” for angels for many years…..and of course the music is also a major bonus, too! I’m thankful that you made me an angel, Natalie! Now, after Christmas, I would love an ornament or two, as well. No rush – maybe next year’s BD?

      Love, Your Mom
