Globes Technique

This is a darling technique making globes from paper circles.  Plus, it can be used on cards or scrapbook layouts.  Think of all the variations you can create on size or using scalloped circles!  How fun!!!

Fancy This: Globe Technique


Hello everyone! I’m here to share a couple of cards with you today. I was drawn to the Childish Things line for these cards as I was influenced by the longer days and my kids wanting to play outside from the moment they get home until we drag them in at night. I love the sense of whimsy in these papers and wanted to do a fun little globe technique to compliment that feeling. Here are a few steps to show you how I made them!

To make the globes, first punch out 6 circles from patterned paper.


Next, fold the circles in half.


Then adhere half of one circle to another half of another circle, making sure to line things up well.


Continue adhering the rest of the circles (adhering the halves together).


For the balloon card, I make three globes from different papers and add a piece of string to back of each globe. Adhere to card and the tie the strings together with a bow.


For the “dreamer” card, make five globes total…three from one pattern and two from another pattern. Add globes to a length of string, alternating the patterns. Attach to card.


The globes are a fun way to add a bit of whimsy and dimension to any project. Make them bigger or with a scalloped circle to change the look. Add them to a banner or album cover for even more versaitlity! Thanks for stopping by today!

    Having read this I thought it was really informative.

    I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this informative article together.

    I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both

    reading and commenting. But so what, it was still

    worth it!
