I’ve been keeping busy making these from Diana Thompson’s pattern, this was an order for 25, and I have made at least 30 more that have been painted various colors for different cancers. Luckily my wife enjoys painting !!

I like them! I was thinking about making something similar for a charity benefit my friend holds each year for the American cancer society. She is a survivor herself. Thanks for sharing! Tammy

I would like to purchase one of these, and any pointers/tips in producing in a sizeable quanity. In late March, is our “Relay for Life” and having these would surely bring in the dollars.

I have some assumptions on the best and quickest assembly, but as I am usually wrong about such, I would hope for any instructions / tips.

Thanks for sharing.

Kapanen, The pattern for these is available here : http://www.scrollsawinspirations.com/default.asp?ID=7&action=detail&ProductCode=143 Diana, includes very detailed but easy to follow instruction for the cutting and assembly of these with the pattern. As far as making a big order of these, my first adivce would be allow plenty of time. Luckily my wife likes to paint so that is a big help, these all had at least 3 coats of paint on them, which is time consuming, The wings and halos I stack cut 4 at a time so that also helps. The ribbons themselves take me about 15 min. ea to cut. Then of course there is some time sanding but not usually much. I used 1×2 pine for the bodies, and 1/8” baltic birch for the wings and halos. Let me know if you have anymore questions. Also Diana Thompson, the designer is always willing to anwser questions, just email her.
