Patchwork Angels (And Friends) – Countdown to Christmas


Today I am popping in to share with you these lovely Christmas decorations made using paper, glue and MDF. Nothing else!


These were very simple to make. First I made a patchwork paper by cutting out various hexagons from different papers using a sizzix cartridge die. For speed, you can cut out a few layers at a time.

Then I simply spread a thin layer of glue onto an A4 peice of card and arranged all of the hexagons together to form a patchwork. To add to the effect, when dry, you could always add little lines using a fine line pen.



Then all you need to do is paint the MDF shapes, then, when dry, place them onto the back side of the patchwork and draw around them. Cut out the shapes and glue them to the MDF. That’s it. You can then hang them up wherever you please! I also turned a few into fridge magnets using excess shims from the packaging of dies.
