New Surprise Ball Design!!

So I was thinking about what to do with a very cute angel pose doll head pick that I bought several weeks ago.  My good friend Linda (feltedfolksies) suggested a really adorable felt angel body that looked easy enough.   Then I thought,  how can I make this something that I can carry in my shop and be so unique and awesome that I won't want to part with it??   

The answer?   A surprise ball formed in the shape of an angel doll!!!!  As you can see in the picture,  I have formed arms and a skirt for the head pick,  and inside the cones are trinkets, treasures and prizes!!!!   So you have a beautiful kitschy angel doll to display any time of the year ( I am really stuck onthe blue/pink crepe theme right now) and when you can't take it anymore, you can rip into that bad boy and discover your treasures o'plenty!!!   I really want to make more of these for the shop if I can find some reasonably priced angel heads.    I almost don't want to part with this one, but I already know what's inside :)      I LOVE making surprise ball favors and treasures candles and such, as most of you know, so I am THRILLED to present this new design.   I am thinking of posting a tutorial for this, but if would be for PERSONAL USE ONLY.  Would you all like to see a tutorial for this??  Let me know.
