Tips and Ideas

  • When gluing your paper together, you might need to press and hold the paper securely for a few seconds to let it dry and stick together pretty securely before moving onto the next step. We didn’t have much trouble with our glue sticks, but if you do, you can always use a paperclip to hold your paper in place while it dries.
  • These paper angels would also look really pretty strung together as a garland or hanging from a large stick to form a Christmas mobile!
  • Children can also embellish their angels with markers, sequins, pearl or clear gems or other craft items.
  • Try making angels in different colors!
