Step 1: Gather Materails

we used around 24 rolls of sellotape and they cost £1.40 for 12 each

Step 2: Start Making a Ball

first you need a base, you could use:
a marble
a scrumppled up piece of paper
or just roll the sellotape up until you have a a big enough base.

and here is a picture or Mr. Benskn dooing just that

Step 3: Continue Rolling Until You Have a Big Enough Ball

keep wrapping rolls of sellotape around until you have used them all up.
we used 24 rolls of tape and it ended up around about the same size as a football, allthough we plan to add more rolls each week

Step 4: Your Finished!

go play football or hold it up to the light and look dead cool, like mr. benskn!
