3D Paper Globe Garland – Steps 1 thru 4
1. Use a glue-stick to glue the blank backsides of your 12 pieces of map paper together until you have 6 double thick pieces that are extra sturdy. Once dry, take a piece and draw 5 circles 3.5 inches in diameter with your compass. You should be able to draw at least five per piece.
2. Next, take your ruler and make a mark halfway through your circles. Then, use the side of the ruler as a straight edge to draw a line through the middle. Next, you can either draw and cut them all out individually, or stack them up and cut out several at time (no more than two or three because more can be difficult).
3. Make stacks of circles six circles high. Staple down the center of the circles, where you drew the line mentioned in step 1, making sure to leave room at the top so that you can punch a hole to run the string through.
4. String the garland with a colored twine of your choice. I chose red so that it popped out in contrast to the green on the map paper. Tie the globes on the string a foot apart from each other. Start bending back the sides of the circle so that they take on a more spherical shape. Hang your globe garland and enjoy!
