If you follow the Stitches Thru Time blog, you probably know by now that I love to do creative stuff with old greeting cards. Today I’m going to show you how to make a
Folded Christmas Card Angel
Using a large
greeting card, draw a circle on the white side of the card with a compass.
Cutout the circle and mark dissecting lines across diameter of the circle to use as folding
marks. Cut along one of the lines to the center of the circle. Using a folding
tool to make the folds sharp, fold along the lines you’ve cut until the circle
is folded as shown below. This is the angel’s skirt (or body).
If your card has lettering on it, such as peace, or joy cut the word out and place it in the angel’s bent arms as shown in the first picture.
A darling name holder for your Christmas table
