For my second project, I'd like to share with you four sweet angels I made for for my sisters for Christmas...

I purchased the burlap votive candle holders at the craft store and turned them upside down.  The angels were adhered with hot glue and snow made with texture paste and glitter to surround them.  I embossed a small tag with silver embossing powder and distressed it for a vintage look.  The tag was tied with PTI twine and attached to Robin Egg seam binding ribbon from Paper Sweeties.  Polka dot paper and glittered stars were added to finish the project.

And, here are two more angels for my other two sisters...

Please come back tomorrow to see another Christmas project I made!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Take care!

Paper:  Coredinations
Stamp:  Cat's  Meow(now retired)
