    This is my first attempt at making any kind of tutorial so please bear with me and let me know if I should clarify something... Link to JD's video on the angel wings is below.

    [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Note: I am writing this tutorial for paracord tiers. I am not going to show how to make a slipknot or solomon bar as we should all know these ties like the back of our hands... I will try to show the tie used for the wings, but for a better instructor watch J.D.'s video on angel wings from his youtube channel Tying It All Together (TIAT). Thanks!! Any questions can be emailed to [/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif]anelson84@gmail.com[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] or my Facebook page Southern Cordist Creations.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Materials - [/FONT]

    1. [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]1 3' cord for the “core”, arms and head[/FONT]
    2. [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]1 5' cord for the body[/FONT]
    3. [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]1 6' cord for the wings[/FONT]
    4. [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]1 3' cord for the clothing[/FONT]
    [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]*Note – I gave myself plenty of extra cord for this project to allow myself to adjust the piece as necessary. The 6' for the wings is about the minimum you need.[/FONT]



    [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Step 1. “Core”[/FONT] Picture 2


    [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Using slipknots, take the first 3' cord and make the head and 2 arms drawing the loops out about 1-2” This will make the “Core” of the entire piece. You can use a 2' cord for this if you wish to cut out some of the extra material.[/FONT]



    [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Step 2. “Body”[/FONT] Picture 3


    [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Using the core from step 1, take the 5' cord and make a solomon bar to fashion the “body” of the angel. I tied once above the arms, then took the rest of the solomon bar underneath the arms to help secure it. This is where you will want to take a look and make sure that the head/arms are even and adjust accordingly as you will snip and singe the cords to lock the core of the angle together. [/FONT]



    [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Step 3. “Wings”[/FONT]


    [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Use the 6' cord to fashion the wings. Since the file was too big to add photos, please see TIAT's video on the wings... Sorry.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Step 4. “Attaching the wings/clothing”[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] Picture 4[/FONT]


    [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Using the second 3' cord, attach the wings to the body using the solomon bar. Be sure to thread the cord through the arms and wrap around the wings before starting the solomon bar. This locks the wings to the entire piece.
