To Alter or Not to Alter? Bo Bunny

To Alter!!  Of course!!

Today Bo Bunny is featuring some fabulous altered projects from the design team.  You need to be sure to check it out and see the beautiful things that the dt has come up with.  Inspiration abounds!

If you know me, you know that I love to alter things.  I have been doing altered items for most of my adult life without actually having a name for it.  There are so many possibilities with altering!  For today's Bo Bunny post, I decided to make an angel.  I had a lot of fun with this one!  I also just love how the non-traditional Christmas colors look!  The Winter Joy collection is a must have for everyone.  It's perfect for any of your winter layouts and projects!

Here is a look at my angel.  It is difficult to see the scale, but she is about 16 -18 inches tall. 

DesignTips: This was made with a paper mache tree topper cone. To make the wooden head stay on well, I cut the top off to give myself more of a base to adhere it to.

The arms are paper that is draped and glued over two pipe cleaners to help hold it's shape. Give your paper a very light spray of water to shape the curve of the arm and then hide the ends behind the wings on the back. Use hot glue to add the boa to the edges of the 'sleeves'.

To make the floral 'arrangement' that the angel is holding, I adhered everything to a circle of paper and then glued it all at once where her hands would be. The chipboard snowflakes are held to the ribbon by using two that are the same size and sticking them together with the ribbon in between.

Winter Joy Bundled, Winter Joy Brrrr, Winter Joy Magic, Winter Joy Stripe, Winter Joy iCandy Brads, Winter Joy Chipboard, Winter Joy Purple Pom Pom Wrap, Winter Joy Green Scrunch Flowers
