Use vintage book pages to make a Christmas angel
• Remove approximately 30 pages from an old book. Fold each page into a triangular shape by laying it horizontally in front of you, bringing the two top corners down to meet in the centre, and folding this in half. There will be excess paper at the bottom of each triangle.
• Place two of the pages together with the folded edges facing each other and adhere together. Continue in this way with all of the remaining pages and arrange to create a ring, forming the angel’s body.
• Apply glue to a polystyrene ball and cover in gold glitter. When dry, stick it to the top of the body. Concertina fold two book pages and fold each in half to create fan shapes. Glue these behind the head of the angel for wings.
• Add glitter glue to the bottom of the dress and gems around the neckline. Add a piece of fringed white card to the neckline for a ruffled collar.
