Made the USA version because of popular demand! [International Version]

This swap was originally hosted by lettergirl. She told me I could host it and since I absolutely love surprise balls I took her up on her offer.

This is the most fun thing to make, ever! These are balls made out of layer upon layer of crepe paper, with surprise objects tucked inside throughout the layers!

For the tutorial at notmartha click HERE. Or to read the tutorial and feature at Miseducated (which features a surprise ball received in the last swap) click HERE.

FYI: On the tutorial, it says to use sheets of crepe paper that you cut yourself. I have successfully used the roll kind that you buy at the dollar store with no trouble at all.

Ideas for things to include: candy, small toys, jewelry, stickers, memo pads, erasers, rubber stamps, ink pads, glitter, craft supplies, tea, keychains, beads, charms, small tubes of glitter glue, etc.

Try to include 10-20 small gifts inside.

Take a look at your partner's profile for ideas about what to include in their ball!

If you have any questions post them here or message me. I check often.

I would like this to be a swap for people who have sent out at least 15 type 3 swaps. No recent ones will be allowed.

This will be my third surprise ball made, and I have to say, I have more fun finding the little items and making it for my partner even more than recieving one! Fun Stuff.
