Step 3 – Using a small piece of cardboard, cut a round shape for a head but leave a long piece for the neck to make it easier to attach. You can even use a small cardboard cut-out of a person and just use the head and neck part. Stick this on to the top of your Angel, securing the neck with Sticky tape at the back.
