Angels for Mallory

So, a couple of days ago, Mal left me a comment saying her sorority is going to be making angels for the University of Michigan Children’s Hospital, and asked if I had any ideas.  Well, this one’s for you, Mal!  :)

I thought quick and easy would be good.  So, I pulled down my punches and set to work.  Here is what I came up with:

That’s the 5 Petal Flower punch, Scallop Circle punch and the 3/4 inch Circle punch.  Punch one of each from card stock.

Lay the 5 Petal Flower over the top of the Scallop Circle.  Line it up so that there are four scallops between the bottom two petals.

Go up one scallop on each side, and cut from the scallop circle edge to the edge of the flower.

Line your pieces up like so.  Put some adhesive (I used SNAIL) on the top petal and the bottom two petals of the flower.

Attach the angel’s head.

Attach the angel’s skirt.  Ta – da!

Voila!  Finished angel!  She’s a little on the small side, but definitely quick and inexpensive to make.  Here are some other projects I came up with:

A little Christmas ornament,

or an angel garland.

Mallory, I hope this helps you get some ideas for your project.  Let me know if you need any other help.

If anyone wants to order the materials to make these adorable angels, please let me know!  It’s a short list and you can get a lot done in a little time.

Until next time, happy stamping!

  7. What a great idea. My BFF’s DD just started her freshman year at U of M on Monday and I’m sending her cards so she gets mail and maybe it will help with the homesickness. I just made one with Night of Navy one side and then used Summer Sun and glued on the back. I’ll send her a little UofM angel to watch over her. Thanks again.

  13. ~**BILLIANT!**~

    My DD’s best friend (10yrs old) has been in the hospital for a week and we learned she won’t be returning home for at least a month:( BUT a whole strand of angels to brighten her room will definitely lift her spirits!

    TFS & Blessings
