Maria from Pakistan asked me how to make a paper ball without using glue.
"They give you a round bat
and they throw you a round ball
and they tell you to hit it square."
The first thing I thought of were those little origami balls we used to make in high school. I remember the boys even filled them with water to make balloons for throwing at surprised people.
There are surely ways a paper crafter will use these as paper ornaments instead, which I am sure you mean to do, Maria They are certainly prettier made from designer series paper rather than school note paper!
Now I am not an origami expert, but I do know how to make these little gems. Actually, the folds used in this project start out just like the ones used in making paper roses up to step three. Then it gets a little different, but not wildly so. I'll show you how.
You Will Need:
There you have it! A paper ball made with no adhesives at all!
I hope this is what you were looking for, Maria. I'm working on your other questions too Thanks for asking!
Do come back and show me your own ornaments when they are done.
Do you make 3-d PaperCraft items? I'd love to see your work. Please do share below.
