What You Do:
  1. Cut one large and two smaller triangles from the poster paper.
  2. Cut out two wing shapes.
  3. Cut the child's head out of the photograph ... this will be the angel's head.
  4. Glue the pieces together (see diagram).
  5. Using the magic markers and glitter, decorate the angel.
  6. You can add a pipe cleaner halo at the top of the child's head.
