3-D Pop-Up Ball

Hi Everyone,

You may have noticed, while perusing the retirement lists, that the 3-D Pop-Up Ball was on there. :( I just used this die for the first time in the Big Shot club, and I had lots of other ideas for it.

Here is the project we made in club - the photo ball.

I used black & white for all my photos, and the template for the photos can be found here. Size #16 rubberbands, found at any office store, are recommended. You may also notice I used the Warm Words set on this ball too, another stamp set that is retiring.

Some other ideas include a pop-up ball desk calendar and, of course, incorporating it into a card. I have seen it used to create a beach ball for a summertime party invitation. There are probably may more desk-type items you can think of with this 3-D ball. Intrigued? You may want to grab it before it is gone!

Stamps: Warm Words (retiring); Paper: Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink, Barely Banana (retiring); Ink: Chocolate Chip; Accessories: Trio Flower punch (retiring), Silver brad, Circle Scissors Plus, 3-D Pop-Up Ball die (retiring), Big Shot, #16 rubber bands, Sticky Strip, Photos.

Thanks for stopping by!
