This project shows you how to convert a recycled or repurposed book into a beautiful paper angel.
Remove couple of pages of music pages and glue to the inside of front and back hardback cover. Fold rest of pages by folding top right corner down to middle of book. Take the doll head and remove the arms. Trim off body leaving a small strip in front and back of the doll body. Glue this to a small craftstick, like ice creams comes on. Glue this down into the hole at top of book behind the pages. Cut hole in center of material and place over doll head. Gather around the neck. Take the arms and form sleeves from a fold in the material and sew in place, or glue in place. Can also make the sleeves from extra material and then glue under the dress materail to the book. Glue the wide lace to pages at the bottom where the page is folded. Glue smaller lace all around the edge and top of the hardback cover. At this point you can add the flowers, bows, bells or any other embelishment you desire. Glue the Bible or other small book to her hands.
