Bauble



A bauble i made with some left over papers.

You have to cut 20, 2 in. circles. Score a triangle in the centre of each then glue the raised semi-circles together. If you mix papers it looks effective.

The paper i used has glitter on it but because the camera is not good, you can't see it, but it's really pretty.

You are supposed to put a bell on the ribbon and on top but as i didn't have any, i've just placed a big bead and smaller ones over it.

  3. i found this look >>>> a 20 faced polyhedron is called an
    icosahedron-the faces are equilateral triangles.

    and then it gets way beyond me into the stuff our connor is doing

  4. We're making those, but out of old christmas cards. Buzz had seen one made out of paper plates, which was HUGE, but I drew the line at decorations we could actually hang up.
