Materials and Tools Needed

This project only requires two things (three if you count tweezers)!

Cricut Design Space Set Up

This is a load up, resize and go file. Which I hope you are loving! The pail and the ball are separate so you can make a decent sized beach ball. It of course will matter on the size of your paper. I max mine out to a 12 x 12 cardstock and I kept the ball on the smaller side.

Beach Ball Assembly

Crafting Beach Ball Sections with Craft Glue

I won't put this into steps because it's really just one step repeated. Start by creating the circle at the bottom and keep the tabs all facing the same way.
