This would have been the perfect 9th day, for Nine ladies dancing. I just didn’t get them done in time. And so they are now the eleventh day, so oh well. Lets just change the song to say Eleven Ladies Leaping? Huh? What do you think?
I am going to start with the angel though. I got the template and idea from Martha. Also here is a picture from their site that shows it as a table decoration. I think it is too fun!
Now, cut out the silhouette.
I cut out some half moon tissue paper tutu’s with pinking sheers, but I realized, a full circle would have worked too, then folded in half, which would have hidden the staples more easily. (you could also glue the tissue paper like the ornament in Day 7, to give the skirt volume) I just gathered into the center and stapled. Then I added a printed paper on top, stapled them together and glued a small piece over the staples. Lastly, glue it to the Ballerina body.
I did a single layer skirt with a decorative top, all just glued in place.
Finally I did a folded circle version of just tissue paper. And just folded it over to hid the staples and glued it in place.
