Easy Angel Crafts: Folded Paper Angel


This pretty little three-dimensional folded paper angel uses paper, yarn and glue to become a simple decoration. 

This one used gold card stock and only three angel shapes glued together.

The Steps for How to Make the Easy Angel Crafts: Folded Paper Angel:

Print the Easy Angel Crafts Folded Paper Angel pattern.

Cut out the angel shape.

Draw around the angel shape on the back of the paper. Draw as many shapes as you want to include in the ornament.

Cardstock takes fewer shapes while thinner paper can take more shapes.

Folded Paper Angel step 1 cut pattern

Cut around each of the angel shapes.

Folded Paper Angel step 2 cut angel shapes

For cardstock, bend the shapes in half with the right side inside the bend.

Be careful not to tear the edges especially below the wings.

For thinner paper, fold the angel shapes in half with the right side to the inside.

Make soft folds along the edges, and do not crease the paper.

Folded Paper Angel step 3 bend shapes in half

Measure and cut the yarn for a 12-inch length.

Folded Paper Angel step 4 measure and cut yarn

Add glue to one half of one angel.

Match that half to the half of a second angel.

Folded Paper Angel step 6 glue first two halves together

Continue gluing halves of the angel shapes together until the last one.

Fold the yarn in half and position the ends 2 to 3 inches inside the angel shape.

Add glue to the yarn ends and to the angel halves.

Folded Paper Angel step 6 glue yarn loop

Add the last angel shape to the glue, and match the edges.

Make sure the yarn is securely glued.

Folded Paper Angel step 7 glue next angel shape

The folded paper angel is ready to display - just shiny and simple.

Folded Paper Angel step 9 hang the decoration for display

Make many angels using different papers and yarns, and make them with different numbers of shapes within each angel.

Have fun!

Fun, easy and inexpensive, this folded paper angel project is a great group activity for families, church groups and senior centers.
