Sphere!


I need to make a bunch of shapes out of paper for one of the college classes, and while they have been easy to do, making a sphere out of paper was giving me problems. Not as easy to do as one would think, many ways to make one, but I just wasn't getting my head around any of them. But...

I know how to weave and found this really great site full of paper weaving, so thought why not try to weave a sphere.

Looks more like a balloon here :p and the paper clips are a must to try to keep everything together until you are done.

And yay! A sphere :)

Wow, the WIP makes a fabulous sculpture all on it's own. I think you need to make two!

That is pretty awesome, would have never thought of something like that. I like the little cut out too, do we have big plans for it?
