1. Firmly press a foam ball against the work surface to slightly flatten the bottom to prevent it from rolling around.
2. Lightly draw a 3-inch circle in the center of opposite sides of the ball; retrace the lines with a dull pencil.
3. Wax the plastic knife with a candle stub or paraffin. Cut the ball in half across the center of the circles. Paint each half-ball with white; let dry completely. When dry, use a red pen to redraw the lines and to add stitching as shown.
4. Glue magnets to the inside center of each half-ball, being sure to test the direction of the attraction to ensure proper magnet placement.
5. Glue the bottom of one half-ball to the center of a cardboard square. Place message between the halves, secured by magnets.?
