I wanted to wrap these simple ornaments for my neice and nephews in a special way, so I thought I'd try making Bami Ballen.
First, I wrapped my ornament in an envelope.
(That's the back of the ornament showing, they weren't that simple.)
Then I wrapped it in a layer of crepe paper and gathered lots of little treats and trinkets
(in this case, candy and mice).
A bit of treasure went into each layer of crepe paper, alternating colors, like so-
A gazzilion yards of crepe paper later, I had 3 Bami Ballen (ok, maybe more like Bami Lumpen).
I think they turned out cute, and I'm sure the kids will have fun uwrapping them. Just one little problem. . . I got them mixed up in the wrapping process and have no idea whose is whose! Sigh. Martha Stewart would not approve. Oh well, at least they're all going to the same house.
