holiday ornaments

I've been hard at work this past week on some holiday ornaments. Mamus is known for his little holiday monster ornaments, so needless to say, we have piles upon piles upon piles of glass bulbs lying around.

Last year's monster batch.
Feeling somewhat inspired after seeing this paper installation by Cathy of California - I decided it was high time I make some holiday ornaments.  I love paper, I love working with paper, I love digging through piles of discarded scrapbooking paper nobody wants. Aside from my hex signs, I don't use my huge basketful of scrapbook paper quite enough. Enter my perfect opportunity.

May I present these beautiful, hand-crafted, paper ornaments. Glass bulbs covered with cut paper - somewhat reminiscent of a pinecone.

I'm trying to come up with a snazzy name for them. Any ideas?
