I don't want to take anything away from Patienthand - I am very familiar with her skills and when going down this post, I interpreted all the comments about blowouts to be in reference to blowing out the initial form. So my 2 cp is blow a hole. I haven't seen her tut, but her skills are top notch so in terms of creating a hole in the ornament for loops or not - DO whatever the recommendation is in the tutorial - Her ornaments are impeccable so I would follow her advice. Having said that - may need to go buy that tutorial or at least put it on my Santa wish list!!! /wink

Guess it really depends on how they are built - I assumed the last thing that goes on is the loop. If you heat up that big bubble on top too much and no hole - issues.
