Circle Inspiration - Angel Ornament

This is my second post of the day. For FCCB click here.

There is no challenge this week over at BBTB2 instead we are offering inspiration using circles.

At the weekend a friend showed me an angel she had made using SU supplies.( My friend doesn't blog and I didn't think to take a photo!)
 I couldn't wait to get home and try to make something similar with my cricut...

and here she is!

Amazingly quick and simple to do!

I used Elegant Edges and cut Circle2 - 5", 4.5" and 2.5"
K&Co double sided papers and cut the circles roughly in half.
There are so many cartridges with circles on.
I rolled one half of the 5" circle and both 2.5" into a cone.
I used my hot glue gun with the silver sparkle is an Angel after all!!
I cut a 4" length of wire and made some circles big enough to hold the cone. I cut the top off the cone and then put the wire through and glued in position.
I added a bead.
I used half the 4.5" circle and glued onto the join on the cone.
In hindsight I could have used the other half of the 5" circle and therefore didn't really need to cut the 4.5" one at all.
Glued the smaller cones on for arms and added a button as a halo. I have some tinsel but it was the wrong colour for this angel! I made a loop on the end of my wire so I could hang it.
This was my first attempt and I have to say that I am going to make lots more...the possibilities of changing it up now I have the basic recipe are huge...glitter,lace,maybe different cricut wings!!!! Lol!
We will be back with a challenge next week.
Thanks for stopping by.
