DIY: 3-D Paper Ball
Learn how to make the DIY: 3-D Paper Ball featured in our November 2015 issue! They make for impressive gift toppers – and they can double as ornaments, too. Here’s how to make it:
You’ll need the template, 12 pieces of square cardstock, scissors, tape.
Step 1: Print the template onto each piece of cardstock. Use paper in the same color for a monochromatic ball, or print six on one hue and six on another for a more colorful result.
Step 2: Cut along the outside edges, which leaves you with a rounded flower shape, and along the lines that extend halfway across each “petal” to create slits.
Step 3: Starting with one flower as your base, slot an additional flower into each slit, then slot those five flowers together so that every petal is connected to another petal on a neighbouring flower. You’ll end up with a bowl shape made out of six flowers — this is the bottom half of your ball.
Step 4: Attach the next five petals to the rim of your “bowl” using the slits.
Step 5: If you want to use the ball as an ornament, use a needle to make a small hole in the middle of the final flower, then pull string through the hole to form a loop on the top side. Use tape to affix the loose ends of string to the bottom of the flower.
Step 6: Attach the final flower, which acts as the top of the ball.
