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

Print the Paper Shapes Angel pattern.

Cut around the printed pattern shapes.

Trace and cut the pattern shapes from the three papers.

If your paper is single-sided, make sure that the wing shapes are mirror opposites and that you don't have either two rights or two lefts.

Paper Shapes Angel step 1 cut shapes

On the back side of one of the torso squares, center and glue the first robe strip of paper.

Paper Shapes Angel step 2 glue first robe strip

Position and glue the next two robe strips at an angle and overlapping the first strip.

Paper Shapes Angel step 3 glue next robe strips

Continue adding the robe strips, gluing them over the previous strips.

Paper Shapes Angel step 4 finish robe strips 

Apply glue to the "shoulder" end of the arm strips.

Glue the front and back of the each arm together with wrong sides together.

The "hand" end of the arm strips will be glued with the hand shape later.

Paper Shapes Angel step 5 glue arm shapes together

Position and glue the "shoulder" end of the arms over the torso and ends of the robe strips.

Paper Shapes Angel step 6 glue arms to torso

Paper Shapes Angel step 7 bend arms at elbows

Insert the hand shape inside each arm and glue.

Paper Shapes Angel step 8 glue hands inside arms

Position and glue the face to the top of the torso.

Paper Shapes Angel step 9 glue face

Add glue to the back side of the second torso square.

Position the second torso square over the bottom of the face, the shoulders and the top of the robe strips matching its edges with the back torso square.

Paper Shapes Angel step 10 glue front of torso

Turn the Paper Shapes Angel over.

Apply glue to the upper portion of the head shape.

Position the front of the halo over the glue.

Paper Shapes Angel step 11 glue halo

Apply glue to the front edge of the wing shapes.

Position the wings over the back torso with the upper part of the wings framing the face and the tips of the wings at an angle away from the bottom of the robe strips.

Paper Shapes Angel step 12 glue wings

Cut a 12-inch length of yarn.

Paper Shapes Angel step 13 cut yarn

Fold the yarn in half and glue the ends to the middle of the back torso.

Paper Shapes Angel step 14 glue yarn loop

Add tape over the wings and ends of the yarn for additional stability.

Just a few geometric shapes and a couple of graceful wings turn into a fun little angel.
