DIY Tutorial: Paper Geoball

OOH - Paper Geoball Tutorial

Definitely feels awesome to be blogging on this platform again! Because one half of OOH is currently away in France (Bonjour!), it became a personal challenge for me to continue crafting… miles away from home and with no materials at all.

Whether by coincidence or not, I found this awesome tutorial from this French blog, . The photos are pretty self explanatory, and I found myself drawing hexagons after hexagons on whatever pieces of paper I could find. It probably would have been much easier/prettier if you printed the templates or used nice scrapbooking paper.

The template is from zü’s blog here.

Here’s my take. Made with a Ralph Lauren paper bag and some liquid paper. I also found it a great way to reuse my travel brochures to store small trinkets — much more environmentally friendly than buying and throwing containers!

    They would look great on the working desk! I can use this to hold all the loose paper clips :)
