I am here to show you how to make a paper angel, a nice table decoration and what you will need is a pair of scissors, a paper plate and you will need to do this design. You will be cutting out this entire area, the grayed area. You will be doing a side slit, a side slit from the angel's wing over and you will cut all the way down here. So cutting off the shaded area and you just kind of give it a little bumpy feathery look. I'm going to cut down in here to give her a bit of a waist and the same thing on the other side and you can bend your paper plate a little bit, it will bend up for you to be a little flatter area. I'm going to bring the angel up here a little bit, cut off some of this excess, get it out of my way, give her a nice little hairdo here, a little flip. Do the same thing on the other side. Now we are going to do this two inch cut in here. This will be how you are going to be sliding your wings together and about a two inch cut this way and what you're going to do is bring this around and invert it, cross it over so the wings will slot into each other just like that. I would predraw your face or any decorations. If you have one of those fancy paper punches you could take and put a little decoration in the front part of your paper plate, your little butterflies, if you have starts, if you have sticker stars you could put those on and decorate that up a little bit. You could also add this little flower or something decorative in the front. Thanks, have a great day.
