Love these? Me too! I'm sure someone else in the world has come up with the same thing, but I was not looking at their idea when I made these. They're another fun result of sitting down at the dining room table with paper circles! And the good news is you really don't need any special supplies! As I mentioned with yesterday's paper ornaments, don't be afraid to try these in contrasting neutral colors for a more sophisticated look. They could be great wedding decorations too!
- colored paper
- a soup bowl to trace
- a glue stick
- a hot glue gun
- fishing line
- Cut 6 circles in color A and 6 circles in color B. I used a soup bowl rim to trace my 4.5 " circles. You can go even bigger if using card stock, but not much bigger if using laser paper.
- Following the diagram below, fold each circle in half and in half again. (steps 1-3) Unfold and fold in half on the dotted line. (step 4) Refold (step 5) on the original black fold lines and pushing in on the dotted line, such that you have a double sided pie shape, with gussets (internal pleats of sorts)
- Glue together 6 pieces, pie-shaped face to pie-shaped face, to form half of the globe, using a glue stick. Make two halves. (see photo above)
- Join the two halves with a hot glue gun or ultra tacky glue, inserting the fishing line within the joint.
- Hang and enjoy, wow! (And come back tomorrow to see one really great way to use these for an original centerpiece!)
