Soccer Ball

 

  1. Wax serrated knife with candle stub or paraffin; cut foam ball in half. Reserve one half for second memo clip.
     
  2. Refer to photo to lightly draw soccer ball pattern onto curved side of half-ball; each pentagon shape has 1-1/4" sides. Begin at center top and work down, alternating pattern placement. Firmly retrace pencil lines with dull pencil.
     
  3. Refer to photo to paint alternating pentagons black; let dry completely. Glue clothespin to center of cardboard square and soccer ball to top of clothespin.

Baseball

 

  1. Firmly press foam ball against work surface to slightly flatten bottom; ball should stand up, not roll.
     
  2. Lightly draw a 3"-diameter circle in center of opposite sides of ball; retrace lines with dull pencil.
     
  3. Wax serrated knife with candle stub or paraffin; cut ball in half across center of circles. Paint each half-ball white; let dry completely. When dry, use red pen to redraw lines and to add stitching.
     
  4. Glue magnets to inside center of each half-ball, being sure to test direction of attraction to ensure proper magnet placement.
     
  5. Glue bottom of one half-ball to center of cardboard square. Place message between halves, secured by magnets.
