POLISH PAPER CUT..."CIRCLE OF ANGELS"

I cut white paper into a circle.  I then folded it in half, fourths, eighths, and sixteenths.  The paper was quite thick at this point.  (This is similar to folding snowflakes.)  I drew with pencil on the triangular section and made half of an angel.  Then I stapled it together, to keep it from sliding around.  I cut out all the negative spaces in and around the angel.  Carefully opening up the folded circle, I saw all my angels along with little birds and Christmas tree shapes, along with the Star of Bethlehem in the middle.  I hadn't planned it that way but was surprised to see the details after it was unfolded.  I glued it onto red shiny paper.
