Angel
Ornament
This ornament is one of my favorites
for traditional holiday trees. Something
about the simple shapes and the way
the light plays off the surface seems just
right. If you adjust the size, this project
can double as a tree topper!

Paper Information For the Angel I usually prefer a minimally printed paper, though sometimes the
right metallic design can add a shimmer that works with the folds of the project.
The ones shown here were made from an 8" (20.5cm) sheet of paper.
