There's also almost no drying time using the Fabri-tac fabric glue. This ribbon angel is so adorable! Imagine lots of them hanging on a tree, or adorn on beautifully wrapped packages."

I have had to down size my Christmas collection over the years and I was not happy about having to make the sacrifice. I am now looking for simple projects to help me increase the number of ornaments that I will have this year. This one is going to the top of the list. I am curious to know just how many angels I will be able to make with a roll of wired ribbon.

I am always on the look out for projects that are easy to complete. This ranks up there as such a project. These little ribbon angel ornaments will be a perfect touch to the gifts that I am responsible to creating as an embellishment. Next year the recipient can use it as holiday decorations.

I am going to try this for my tree! What a lovely little ornament, will be perfect for my tree.
