I made a magnet, she can put on her fridge. I just glued some paper on a piece of cardstock and punched it out, and added an epoxy sticker, and a magnet on the back.
Teabag folding with book paper.
Miniature music sheet.
I also added a small pocket and a file folder. And I left some space where she can add stuff to it.
This ball took a while to make. You need 30 pieces to complete it. The first time I tried to put it together, I didn't have enough pieces, and it made an oval!!!!
So I took it apart and started over. On my second try and a few more pieces it worked out great. I mixed book pages with magazine pages.
The result is well worth the work. I used 4x4 squares. You can find instructions on You Tube.
I watched the Paper Pixie video. Blessings, Renate

I found a tutorial on You Tube (Happyfolding.com). The only thing I did different, I glued my flaps down before putting the ball together. Made it very sturdy.
For the bottom paper I used 80lbs. cardstock. And for the top piece I just used up my scraps.
On all the flat parts I put some UTEE on it. I also added some bling. I will be making an other one, since they are easy to make. Blessings Renate
