Fold the tissue into a rectangle, several layers thick. The width of the rectangle should be the length of the angel's dress (you can trim it down later). Fold the rectangle backwards and forwards into a concertina.

Fold a second piece of tissue paper into a rectangle and glue this around the top half of the angel's body, covering the elastic band. Stick a shiny star onto the front of the dress.

Bend a sparkly pipe cleaner into a halo shape, leaving a long section so that you can attach it to the back of the angel.
