Thanks Agent Crush for the idea / tutorial. As a crafter, I'm always looking for ways to use items and materials that are on hand, esp. if it's free (sales papers in the mail) or items that can be reused / repurposed / recycled / upcycled. Styrofoam balls can get expensive. So with a bit of fine tuning and more rolling to smooth the rough edges, this would be an excellent alternative to buying Styrofoam to make ornaments. I'm also looking at ways to use plastic grocery bags in this similar way.

Making a ball out of paper?
That is really old.
WOAH! DUDE! I just thought of the best idea ever!!!!! You could buy a soccer ball at walmart for $5.00! And that one would actually work and wouldn't mold when it touches water!
WOAH! DUDE! I just thought of the best idea ever!!!! Stop being ignorant and give the kid a break, it is a good idea. However, it is also 100,000,000,000 times better than your zero instructables.
Woah! Dude! I just thought.. You're right, I do not have any instructables. But, It's a ball, made of paper..... and tape..... why would anyone even need an instructable on how to make a ball... of paper... and tape...
tru dat.
Still, better than nothing... There's many instructables where it's common sense. How to clean a keyboard, isn't that obvious, how to play a sport, anything. Wether it is easy or hard does not change the quality.
Dude, it's a ball made out of paper and tape. it makes me yawn. do you have any other instructables? htis is boring. not to hurt your feelings but it is practically useless. I am sorry if this is offending you.sorry. piece out.
yep
definetly requires a ---------- instructable!!!
