|Your present is a demo! Pretty soon you're going to want something to hang on a tree. How about something fold formed? caption|
|You're going to need some things. A straight edge, scissors or a sharp knife, maybe some tape, perhaps a few paper clips, and most important fingers..Oh and a roll of aluminum foil. Hey it's metal!|
|I've taken an 18" by 36" sheet and box pleated it the long way,|
|It was then accordion pleated-folded at 90 degrees. I cut this into two sheets 9" long.|
|With a little unfolding and finger work it should look something like this. But we have to join the edges together.|
Instead of doing that do this. Another type of pleat! A rolled pleat as the join.
Fun part! ( understand we are going to open the mountains not the valleys)
These are the two forms I created during this demo. Could you do them in copper? Sure, just find some copper foil. I had too many pleats to get ball shapes. You'll figure it out. I used 3/4 " spacing..too big for ornaments? For thanksgiving you recieved the gift of seeing a possibility, Enjoy!
