Anything Goes for Christmas!!

Yeh!!! At last the internet and my PC are both working again. Sorry for the lateness of this post but technology that doesn't work  has taken over my world at the moment!!!

At Crafting with Dragonflies Hilde said DT team 'Anything Goes. It's Christmas' So folks we are asking for anything Christmas related. This can be a card, gift, box, scrapbook page, 3D decoration.....anything as long as it's Christmas related. I went for a tree ornament made from some wired ribbon I had in my stash left over from last Christmas.

They are easy to make with a piece of wired ribbon approx. 2inches wide.
This is pleated , 7 pleats in total, for the skirt. Then pinch the top and staple it together. Take another piece and make 5 pleats. Pinch in the centre and staple it. Using a hot glue gun adhere wings to the body. Add a tiny bell with hot glue for the head, you could use a bead. Make sure the loop of the bell is at the top to make threading the ribbon for hanging easier. To finish add a gem to cover join of body and wings. Thread ribbon or thread to head to hang.

The angels will also stand alone without the need to hang as the wired ribbon makes them stable. If you need further instructions don't hesitate to ask me. You can probably find a video on You Tube showing you how to make them too. 
Please pop over to 'Crafting with Dragonflies (link in sidebar) to see what the rest of the team have created to inspire you. I look forward to visiting you and seeing what yummy projects you have made for Christmas.
Have fun!!
