I've been keeping my eye out for some old globes I could upcycle, however, when this cut file became available, it hopped right into my shopping cart! There are two versions in the kit -- a full globe and then one that separates into halves and can be filled with goodies. Both will turn on the (straw) axis in the stand. Needless to say, this file found at Creatieve Papier Uitspattingen has so much potential -- I didn't have to wait any longer to find a globe! Corina even has a printable "world" face you can add if you want something a little more realistic.
There is a link to an assembly video on her website, and I would suggest you watch it for some assembly tips. I believe that Corina weighted her base, however, I didn't find the need to do that with my version but the weight of your globe and the paper used could make a difference and require weighting.
The finished globe is approximately 7 inches high and a perfect fit with my 3D letters from SVGCuts and I love having it on my mantel.
I created my sentiment using fonts on my computer and had to do just a little manipulating to get them to stick to the curved surface of the panels.
Burnish the edges of the vinyl to the cardstock. This helped on a few pieces that need a little more shaping to the curves.
If you decide to hand write your sentiments on the vinyl, be sure to use chalkboard vinyl. You can wipe away the dust and reapply with chalk as desired.
