Swift Gifts - Project #2

I am so excited to share this with you, because rarely do my paper projects turned out, don't know what it is, but I usually end up throwing them away.  So while I was blog hopping, my feet landed over at the The Hybrid Chick.  I didn't take many process picture, because I just knew I would hate it in the end.
Could not find egg shaped foam balls so I use round, which I found at the $ store (2) for $1 instead of about 4 dollars at wally world
Next I used a single sheet of random christmas paper I had and cut it into 1" X 1" squares while watching TV which made it go by quickly. 
Then I folded down each corner on one side to make an or arrow shape.  I started at the bottom of my foam ball to make sure I got the shape I wanted.  Then I just stagared the pieces, gluing with the glue gun.  The Hybrid Chick shows pins.  Just make sure if you use the glue gun to keep it on the paper as much as possible.  Low temp glue works best.
 Good Luck if you try this one, please let me know.
