Angels Watching Over Me

Last Christmas I made this quick and beautiful project for my little girls.  I found sweet, feathery angel wings at Pier One Imports, that were originally a Christmas tree ornament.  They were very inexpensive, check them out here, and they’re available again this year.

I decided to frame them and turn them into art.  I picked up some great, shadow box frames at Ikea.  It’s the Ribba, for $10, have a look at it here.

I used some pretty scrap book paper as the backgrounds;  one pink with white polka dots, the other a textured Japanese paper.  I was inspired by the childhood prayer, and decided to print on my computer the phrase “Angels Watching Over Me My Lord”.  I picked a pretty font, and printed on simple white paper.  I assembled it all with my trusty glue gun for the wings, and some double sided tape for the paper.  I cut a piece of heavy cardstock, and taped the decorative paper to it, then I just snipped the hanging cord off of the wings, glued them to the background, and taped the phrase underneath.

I love the way they turned out, and the girls enjoyed finding them under the Christmas tree, on Christmas morning.

Nice to be reminded, that the angels are watching.
