Christmas Ornament Tools

>Good Morning All!

My Wife and I want to make a few Christmas ornaments for gifts this year. I visited Woodcraft last week intending to buy the Sorby tool set for onrnaments, but balked at $114 for three itty-bitty little tools. Call me cheap, but I think I would like to make my own tools for this purpose!

So my question is, have you made your own Christmas ornament tools? Would you be willing to lend me the benefit of your experience? Where to get the metal? How to bend the bent ones? The theory behind various shapes?

Thanks!

Scott.
