Making a Sphere with Christmas Cards

Does anyone know how to make a sphere using recycled Christmas cards? I made one long ago in grade school by cutting circles and can't remember the rest?

I found the instructions for spherical ornaments in Allcrafts.com, they have many ideas for old Christmas cards.

Oddly enough, the directions for making one of these was posted on here last year. I even bookmarked it, but never got to it. See if this link works:

I hope it does. Otherwise, you should be able to search for it on here somehow. Good luck!

Fold the circles in to make a triangle and glue or staple them to each other until you have a ball. I can't remember how many circles it takes, but I think it is around 15 or so.

I made some of these about 35 years ago and they are still in good shape. I need to try and made some more.
