An adorable geodesic sphere made from plastic overhead projector sheets!

This is such a beautiful project.  When I was a boy I loved to create miniature worlds, dioramas, and snow globes.  I now know that as an adult I still have this love!  This project was developed by my friend Gina at Willowday.  Visit her beautiful blog here!
