She's an Angel !!.......

 Good Morning All, "long time no see" lol.... I would like to say that I've been really busy, but I haven't, but the time has flown by and I've not finished anything that i can show you yet !!

I had my son home for the weekend, so i wasn't able to go into the craft room until Monday. 

I had started the book folding for this angel over the weekend- whilst watching t.v. 
I was shown how to make this from a friend in my craft here's my attempt.

I used a paperback book for this, and first removed the outer cover and some of the spine's glue, to loosen the spine up a bit.
Three folds per page to create a full cone shape. This i then stuck onto a round piece of card. The head is a polystyrene ball. The hair is florist ribbon, cut into strips and then curled.
 The halo is two circular dies to make a frame, on mirri card. Pearl on a string around the neck.
 Florist ribbon in strips and curled around the dress.
 Lace around the bottom, with a orange gem on every other flower centre.
 A triple bow at the back for wings.

I'm thinking of doing another book fold but this time turn it into a Christmas Tree...... drop by again soon to see if i succeeded!!! x
