I made 150 of these angels. Can you tell what they are made from?
1) a paper napkin 2) a metallic pipe cleaner 3) pleated paper butterfly. That's it!
It's one of those projects that just 'came' to me. Discussion of decorations for a Christmas dessert... Question: "what shall we do with the napkins?" WHAM! This just popped into my head full-blown. I just had to enlarge the template for the pleated paper butterfly, cut out 150 of the wings from fractal gold paper gift bags (from the dollar store), and assemble them.
The pipe cleaner is folded in half and a loop created. Twist together 1 1/2 inches. Fold down top corner of napkin then fold in sides to create a 'cone'. Gather a 'neck' and wrap pipe cleaner ends from back to front, cross over and around to back. Wrap pipe cleaner around center of wings. Bring ends of pipe cleaner to front between top and bottom wings. Fold into 'arms'.
So glad when my brainstorms work as planned.
