Ornament Week


I am starting my holiday decorating and crafting early this year and maybe, just maybe, I will be ready for Christmas this season. I plan on doing a lot of baking and homemade gift making this year and can't wait to share my ideas with you. For starters I am making ornaments and hope to be able to share a new one with you every day this week.

This is along the lines of the hanging lantern ornament, not sure what it is commonly called. I crimped all of the 4" long and 1/2" wide strips and added large silver brads to each end along with Handsome Hunter Sizzix Little Leaves die cuts and Pretties Kit pearls for berries. All supplies used are Stampin' Up.

It looks great, but what I do not understand: If you just fix both ends, how does it come that it holds a ball-shape and is not hanging long like a balloon without air?
