DIY SATURDAY :: COLORED PAPER SPHERE

    Sorry I haven't been posting to often, it's because things are a little busy around here! Which is good...
 I was planing to post this DIY last Saturday but as you see I couldn't do it! Now here we are...and I can't wait for you to see it what I have done!
    Back in the days, one of my stores in Brazil had similar lamp shades as part of the decoration, they were made out of some kind of plastic, so trying to make something new to use as a party decor  I had the thought to  make these paper spheres. You can also use it to decorate the kids Room,  the ones I made are now part of the decoration of  my son's bedroom.
   The original design for this lamp was done over 30 years ago by Holger Strom and what is amazing about this design is you can make up to 22 diferent shapes using the same module, isn't that amazing? He is a genious!!!
   Since I wanted to use bold and trendy colors, first I thought making with some colored cardstock paper , then I realized it was going to be a little expensive, here what I did...
   I had some brown paper left home, so I bought gift paper wraps, stick them together using spray adhesive, trace the module and cut them out. At first it seems a lot of work but I can tell you it worth it!!!
   A bougth a bin of brown paper at Walmart for just $6.50, the gift paper wrap costs $5.00 and with the lenght of the paper wrap you can trace up to 100 modules! The brown paper bin you can trace over 500!!!
   But here is what I figured out, this method just works for the round shapes, to make the oval, diamond and the other shapes you will need the module to be colored on both sides...







Material needed:

  1. Brown paper; 
  2. Colored Gift Paper Wrap; (about 8 feet)
  3. Spray Adhesive;
  4. Scissors;
  5. Damp cloth;
*If you don't want to do this process, just use a colored cardstock paper.

Instructions:
  • Lay the brown paper and spray the adhesive just about 12" of the lenght ( is better to do little by little than all at once);
  • Lay the back of the gift wrap over the adhesived area and rub the surface using a damp cloth (using a damp cloth will avoid to scratch the paper and it will fasten the process);
  • Trace out 30 modules and cut them out.
  • Start putting the pieces together, you will make something looking like a flower at the bottom (5 pieces);


Here you can see the beggining of the process


Middle of the process


End of the process


To hang the sphere I cut out some circles (cereal box paper) using a scrapbook punch, made a hole on the middle of the circle and the module using a needle, passed through the holes a fish line (made a triple knot an burned the end).





These are the shapes you can make using the same module.




Here you can see the lamp shades I had, they were slightly different but had the same concept.
This photo brings me so many memories.....




I hope you have enjoyed!
