Step 1: Getting your template
Using the template provided, trace your design onto the Roymac Rains paper. From the Rains Pad 230x310mm you should get 8 angels per sheet.
Step 2: Angels
To make one angel, you will need to cut out two angels. If you want to make four angels, cut out eight.
Step 3: Colour
Using the paint and some water, paint the angels. You can make them as bright and beautiful as you want.
Step 4: Bring her to life!
Paint the angel’s dress, hair, star, wings and feet. Make sure the brush is loaded well with colour because it may dry lighter than how it appears when it is wet.
Step 5: Drying time
Once painted, let the angels dry.
Step 6: Details
Using a Stay Anywhere Permanent Marker, add details if desired or outline the angel and her dress. This will help the designs to stand out.
Step 7: Start Sewing
When the paint is dry, take some strong needles and cotton or string and start sewing from the top of the angel’s head down towards the feet.
Step 8: Fun stuff
Once near the feet, start to fill the angel with tissue and continue sewing around the angel’s body.
Step 9: Check the progress
When ¾ of the angel is sewn, check to see if the angel needs more or less stuffing, then finish the angel, sewing all around the outside

Once back at the starting point, make a loop with the thread so the angel can be hung from her head on a Christmas tree.
