Instructions

Angel

  1. For the arms of the angel you need two Christmas tree bodies.
  2. Use the circle basic shape to cut out the top portion of the tree, position the circle over the tree, lining it up at the top score marks, select both shapes, for the Silhouette use the crop, for the eclips use intersection. Or you can cut the whole tree out and cut out by hand.
  3. Cut the rest of the pieces for the angel, assemble the tree as in Mary’s directions.
  4. Assemble the arms and glue the top layer pieces on.
  5. Heat your glue gun.
  6. With your scissor cut about a half inch to three quarters off the top of the tree, (angel body)
  7. Use your hot glue gun to glue the Christmas bulb to the top of the angel body.
  8. Hot glue the two arms to the sides of the angel body.
  9. Glue lace around the angel’s neck and use some twine or ribbon with a button to decorate.
  10. Glue the two wreaths together and glue a couple of red gems on top, glue wreath around Christmas bulb.
  11. For the banner I created an inside shadow layer and typed my sentiment and aligned inside.

Box

  1. On one of the side pieces use the basic shape oval to center towards the bottom for the front cutout.
  2. Cut the front piece and glue some clear acetate over the cutout oval piece.
  3. Cut the rest of the pieces.
  4. On the side piece that connects to the front trim off some of the flap so you do not see it through the oval cutout.
  5. Cut out out all the embellishments and decorate.

Design Tips

Brigit – SVGCuts Design Team Artist

  • I used a red permanent marker to color clear gems for the berries on the wreath.
  • I recommend using hot glue for the arms and head since these will be hung from a tree, you want a nice firm hold.
  • I inked and curled each layer piece for the angel, it makes it nice and full and stands out more.
  • For the holly and stampable I created layer pieces, adds a little more dimension and pop.

I hope you have enjoyed these Christmas angels as much as I enjoyed making them. So many different ways they can be decorated, add some feathers to the wings, ribbons, just have fun.

    HI,
    I’m trying to make one of these angels and I”m not quite sure how to do the arms. I know it says it takes two tree bases, but they look shorter. Please help! Thank you!!!!!

    I’m also making the little angles and had to really think the arms thru. Then it hit me. You only use the top part of the tree, about 2 inches (the 1st set of score marks running across the tree). I also made the arm cone a little tighter by putting glue on two strips before connecting it. This will eliminate one of the pieces you glue on top.

    Hope this helps.

    I do not understand the directions for the angel in 2. please reword this. Use the circle basic shape to cut out the top portion of the tree,(HOW) position the circle over the tree, lining it up at the top score marks (Which score marks where and what side??), select both shapes, for the Silhouette use the crop, for the eclips use intersection (and than program crashes.). Or you can cut the whole tree out and cut out by hand.

    and than what?

    How big are the ornaments used? 1.4 inches sounds odd. Do you have the size in mm?

    does anyone know what the Epiphany Crafts 25 Tool and Epoxy is use for? I think there should be a video on the Mary or Leo:)
