Christmas Angel Ornament Tutorial

I hope you like this tutorial.  It is easy and fun. I think the angels are just beautiful and would make a nice babies first Christmas ornament.
You need:
Cardboard 6x4 inches or larger if you want a bigger angel,
Christmas ribbon.

1: start to wrap the yarn around the cardboard. (don't wrap to tight or it will be hard to tie off the yarn)

2: wrap the yarn about 20 times, give or take a few depending on the thickness of the yarn you are using

3: take a piece of yarn about 6 inches long and slide under all the yarn one one side of the cardboard, pull it to the top and tie it tight. This will be the top of the head.

5: cut the bottom of the yarn

6: this is what it will look like after you cut the bottom of the yarn

7: tie a piece of yarn round the tassel about one inch down from the top. This is the head

8: start on the wings, wrap the yarn around the shorter side of the cardboard

9: once you are done slide the yarn off the cardboard and cut another piece of yarn to tie around the middle of the wings

10: set the wings aside for now

11: Part the body of the angel in half

12: grab the wings

13: place them in between the two pieces and slide the wings close to the head

14:  tie the ribbon around the angel under the wings

The last step is to heng the angle on your tree.
