Sequins

A few weeks ago, my daughter and I made some Christmas ornaments like we made when she and my other children were little.  I have been seeing sequins on cards, of late, and I love sequins, but I have to say, this trend eludes me...not exactly sure why, but not seeing sequins as embellishments.  You may love sequins on cards and that's great, but I decided to use my "lot" of potential sequins I would use on cards, and pin them to a styrofoam ball with some sequin pins:):)...
We threaded some silver ribbon through the ball and then pinned away.  My daughter pinned her sequins with the curved side "in" and I chose pinning my with the curved side "out".  Ok...that's all I'll say about or you'll see of sequins:)!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  2. Must admit I kinda like them on cards, too, but these remind me of gifts I made for all the aunts and uncles when I was a kid! I think I used a velvety ribbon for the hanger and as a bow tail on the bottom. My Mom still has one in her ornament collection!
