Angels We Have Heard on High

The theme this week over at The Sweet Stamps Blog is Christmas Tags and to me that includes angels. This one takes a bit, but it is wonderful.
Cover a tag base with Christmas themed sheet music. I buy lots of these in thrift stores. This is from a damaged hymnal.
I used the new Wrought Iron Stencil and a bit of  Sparkle Embossing Powder to add a bit more interest to the paper.
I then stamped the Face only of the 1900's Girl and the Dot Butterfly onto a blank page from the same hymnal.
Fussy cut the butterfly.
Now using a gear piece as a halo add the face to a gathered piece of lace and the butterfly as wings. Glue and clip together to dry.
Attach to the tag.
Add vintage buttons stacked with more of the  gears as the body of the angel. Glue into place.
As a final accent add coordinated Mini Medallion cuts to the tag.
Ready to add to that special gift.
