      Here’s what you’ll need to make these glowing angels:

      ? Clear Plastic Cups
      ? Printer paper
      ? Pen
      ? Crayons
      ? Sharpie Markers
      ? Scissors
      ? Clear Tape
      ? LED Tea Lights (1-2?per angel)


      Let’s make some paper cup angels!

      Step 1:
      Roll your plastic cup over a sheet of paper and trace along it’s edges as it rolls. Now you’ll have a curved shape which will fit nicely over your cup. Cut the shape out, and trim off about 1” to 1 ?” off the top (shown by the curved line) so that you’ll have space for the angel’s face.
