Handmade Christmas Gift Ideas - Little Paper Angels

These little paper angels are adorable. They are posted as Advent angels but they would make very cute package trims or stand-alone token and last-minute gifts. This is part of our ongoing series (9/21-12/24) of handmade Christmas gift ideas.

I found this one day in my daily e-newsletter from CraftGossip. Stephanie at ToastieStudio designed them and all you have to do is download the pattern, at this link. Be sure to download the file and do not try to print from the example on the post or they will not print crisp and clear.

I love anything that I can simply print, cut, paste/glue in place, and use or give. How easy is that?

They print four to a page, so that gives you an idea of the size. They would probably be about 4 inches or so in height. I think I will probably try one print on cardstock and one on paper, to see which I like best for giving.

These are so adorable and colorful. The little faces are perfect.

For other projects in my series, just look along the right sidebar for the label "Christmas Gift Projects." I hope to post only tips that do not require knitting, crocheting, machine sewing, tatting, embroidery, or any other skilled technique.

If you are feeling too crushed for time to make your own gifts this season, check my Etsy shop for items for your gift list.
