My First Biscornu!

Will someone please tell me why these things are so fun to make? What purpose do they serve? But then again, what purpose does our craft serve anyway? I guess I'll answer my own question about the biscornu - they're quick, easy, and really cute.

This one is called Sweet Christmas, and it's designed by Helga Mandl. I stitched a Halloween piece by her in October, and decided to turn this ornament design into a biscornu. I used the tutorial from Own Two Hands - a well-done tutorial, which really made this an easy task. The button is from Just Another Button Company.

This is the bottom side - I didn't want to stitch the design twice so I just put a few stitches in each corner and used an ordinary red button.
