church I help plan activities for the women that we hold throughout the year that teach, uplift and inspire. This little angel was a favor we gave out for our Christmas Activity. I had this thought that it would be fun to make a few bigger angels to display that would match the little die cut angel. So that is what I did.
You can see above that I used an overhead projector to trace the angel onto the foam core. I simply put the die cut angel right onto the projector and it blew it up for me! You could do any shape you wanted! I traced the outline onto the foam core, then I used a cutting mat and an exacto knife to cut out the angel shapes.
I worked in small sections and held them in place until the glue hardened. I was so pleased with how easy it was, and how the poster board just went to the shape of the foam core so simply! When my strip ran out I just overlapped a new strip and kept going.
The three middle pieces of wood all split. It is ok if that happens, you can see the dried glue in the middle photo above. I tried to glue them together first, but I could see it wasn't necessary. I just clamped them all together. To connect them I used other scraps from the pallet, and nailed them on the back, making sure to hit all the pieces of wood. Oh, and I did sand to prevent splinters!
