Designer Rosette Die Angel

Thanks to the new Designer Rosette Die this sweet little angel was a surprisingly quick project.
Did you notice her wings???  They are made from the new white Waffle Paper and cut with the Elegant Bird Bigz Big Shot Die both of which will be available in the new Occasions Mini catalog.  So delicate and airy!!

The base is a styrofoam cone that is 2-7/8" diameter at the bottom and 5-7/8" tall.  I cut two strips of Twitterpated DSP with the Designer Rosette die.  Both strips were 12 inches long.  The red print was cut the full height so it has both decorative edges.  The blue underskirt was cut from a strip 2 1/2" tall.   A band of Cherry Cobbler seam binding cinches the bodice in at the top.

I used a 2 inch paintable styrofoam ball for the head and punched the eyes and mouth with the Owl Builder punch.  White gel pen highlights her eyes.  Her headband is 1/8" Marina Mist ribbon and the flowers are cut from the Twitterpated DSP.  As a final touch I twisted a bit of gold wire into a halo.   


  1. Oh My Goodness!!! that is absolutely brilliant. Lovely project -- and I so didn't NEED either of those dies....
