What do you do with old magazines??? instead of throwing them away .....Learn how to make recycled magazine party balls and save some money next time you decorate for a celebration! Make these unique looking party balls for free and embellish your party space within minutes...
Step 1: You start with using a 7 1/2" plate for your circle pattern. Use the sketch pen to make the outline and cut to shape using a scissor.
Step 2:Fold the circle into 12 equal pie parts on similar lines as shown along side.
Step 3:Once the circle is folded notch on the folds using the scissor.
Step 4:Draw a line along the diameter of the circle at the centre. Trace around the plate once again on a stack of 15 magazine papers. Fold your pattern and draw a line through the centre of the circle. Staple the stack together on the line drawn atleast at 3 points. Placing the pattern make notches on the front page of the stack as shown...
Step 5:Cut out the stack of circles using the scissor. You make notice that due to the polished smooth surface of the magazine, if the staple clips are not stapled at 3 points the pages may move giving uneven edges and wrong output.
Using the scissors make notches on the stacked papers exactly on the marked points.
Step 6:Time for the final touches....First fold the stack into half on the line drawn. Starting with the outermost page using the hot glue gun, make 3 glue dots as shown with one in centre and the other two in the notches on either side.
Turn to the next ge and glue 2 dots on the remaining two spots. Continue the same for the remaining sides...first 3 dots...then two...thus a make a glue dot on every other notch. Continue alternating the glued notches until there are no more pages left. Each stack of 15 magazine pages makes one half of each party ball. In similar fashion complete both sets of 15 magazine papers each.
Step 7:Once each half is ready they looks gorgeous! Hot glue each of these halves together and also place a ribbon on between the two party ball haves....
