While hopping around I came across a couple of blogs with the most beautiful hand crafted angels. One was an angel made from a template but using a Christmas Tilda as the upper body and the lady who had created it made the most fantastic job but when I tried to emulate her talent ... it didn't work!!! The angels on the other blog were made completely from a template with a small bauble for the head so that you could hang it up.
I've had a few false starts but this is the first one I'm happy to let anyone see! Unfortunately the camera makes the ribbon look totally wrong but irl it's a perfect match. I've another couple drying on my craft desk and I may let you see them tomorrow.
If you're interested in giving these angels a try you'll find the template here.
