surprise balls

Here's the reason for all of the tiny things I've been posting: I’m making surprise balls! I loved opening these as a kid, and since grownups deserve happy surprises too, I’ve re-imagined them Artsyville-style. I'm handing out a bunch as gifts, and I'll put a few in the shop on Monday, too. If you've never opened one before, it's a blast! Starting from the outside, you'll peel away layers of crepe paper, and as you unwind your way to the middle you'll discover a happy, uplifting parade of tiny things -- a mix of handmade Artsyville goodies, inspirational handlettered messages, and other colorful little itty bitty trinkets, trifles, whatchamacallits, doodads, etc. First one is done & now it's time to make more balls!
