Pretty Paper Balls

Looking for a unique hanging decoration idea for your party?  Klic-N-Kut/Zing owners can easily whip out “Pretty Paper Balls!”  These paper balls are inexpensive to create and are relatively easy to fold after a little practice. No adhesive necessary!  Twelve independent pieces are required to create one ball.  The cutting file can easily be resized to make this project as large or as small as you desire! 

The Pretty Paper Balls pictured were created as a display at the Bazzill Basics Paper booth for the Craft and Hobby Association trade show this month in Anaheim, California.  Imagine the possibilities!  You can cut them from cardstock weight double-sided printed paper.  Stamp on them (prior to assembly).  You can add sequins and/or glitter! 


Remember that there is a top, a bottom and then two levels of 5 components for each ball.  What worked best for me was completing both halves (top + 5 pieces and bottom + 5 pieces) and then connecting the top and bottom half. 

Supply List:

Bazzill Cardstocks – Ebony [15-1080], Apple Crush [5-5128], Cream Puff [8-804] and Sydney [7-712]

And the cutting file for the paper balls can be downloaded from here:
