Each of these paper models consist of one page with instructions and a model than can be cut out and assembled. The scale of the Globe model is designed to fit around a tennis ball, but it could be adjusted with a copy machine for balls of a different size.

|*The globe model works best with tennis balls. Check with the nearest tennis club for worn out balls, as this is a good way to recycle them.|
|I also found inexpensive plastic balls at a "dollar" store. Five for $1 is less expensive than Styrofoam balls, which are another option. These plastic balls are slightly larger than tennis balls, so the pattern would need to be expanded a few percent when copies are being made.|
