4. Using the body template draw round it on the laminate with a
permanent pen and cut out.
5. Apply a line of strong wet glue along the 1/8 th of the circle section,
roll the laminate round and glue in place, making the bottom even
and holding the join until the glue is set.
6. Cut a circle of white Bazzill for the head 1 ½’’ in diameter, color
with flesh and pink pencils and make features with a permanent
pen. Cut a length of art wire, attach to the back of the head with
some masking tape about half way down, make a loop for
threading with ribbon then continue it into a halo shape. Draw
round the head onto some yellow Bazzill cardstock to make the
hair at the back and a small fringe for the front. Snip into the
yellow card and curl then stick to the front and back of the face.
Leave a little gap at the bottom of the back of the hair to allow the
head to sit on top of the cone so the face is one side, hair the
other, attached with a blob of strong wet glue.
7. Draw round the wings template on the yellow, glittered laminate
and cut out. Attach to the back of the body with a blob of strong
wet adhesive.
8. Decorate the bottom of the body with lace or ribbon. Using some
patterned paper from the Cosmo Cricket jolly by golly kit cut some
arms and attach with glue. If you want to hang them, thread the
small loop you made in the art wire with some organza ribbon.
That completes your choir of angels!
9. The Christmas trees; These are so easy! Make 3 templates of semi
circles plus 1/8 th of the circle (see template instructions for angels

Pocket and fill with a fine sprinkle of white glitter, laminate.
28.Cut 2 circles from the laminate using the template.
29.Cut the snowman from one of the word strips in the Cosmo
Cricket Jolly by Golly crafting kit, pierce a hole in the top of
him and thread with organza ribbon.
30.Following the outline of one of the circles put a line of thin
foam tape round it, Position the snowman within the circle,
sticking the ribbon to the foam tape and extending out of
the circle then stick the other laminated circle on top.
31.From some of the patterned paper in the Cosmo Cricket kit
and using the circular template make a scalloped frame to
cover the width of the foam tape, cut two at the same time
to cover the front and back of the laminate. Stick in place.
32.Hang the ‘snow globe’ and enjoy your cute snowman
dancing in his glittery home.
33.So now the choice is yours, you know what each decoration
needs, so, decide what you want to make. Get your hot
pockets out, fire up the # 3020 hot laminator and get to
playing and having fun making your own unique Christmas
decorations. And you don’t have to just hang them as
individual decorations, what about adding them into your
Christmas garlands along the fireplace or along the stairs
banisters! Thanks for playing and Happy Christmas!
