Smiley Face Surprise Balls

I love having a little something on hand when I visit my nieces and nephews. Surprise balls are awesome little packages of magic and mystery — and you can keep them stockpiled in the car for any special occasion. It’s a great way to get a smile on their faces as they unravel all the bits and baubles hidden inside. And it’s contagious! You can’t help but smile along!

Start with the largest item as your base, then wrap the other little trinkets and gifts into the folds of the crepe streamer until you have a neat, round package! It’s such a fun way to gift wrap a bunch of tiny treats!

Materials Needed: Yellow crepe paper streamers, tiny gifts, scissors, Aleene’s Tacky Glue Quick Dry, black cardstock, ½ inch hole punch, washi tape

Step 1: Gather a variety of tiny gifts to wrap in your surprise ball.

Step 2: Starting with the largest item, begin to wrap with the crepe paper streamer. Continue to wrap the item until it is completely wrapped. Wrap the second item until you have a ball shape, then add a tab of washi tape to secure the end of the streamer to the ball.

Step 3: Cut out face details from cardstock. Using ½ inch hole punch create the eyes.

Step 4: Secure the faces to the surprise balls. Smile! You’re all done!

    What a fun little project. My girls would have loved these… Who doesn’t need a smiley face now and then, right? You could even put pennies inside.
