After a long week of work, I so look forward to the weekends & spending much-needed time together as a family. Last weekend, we went candlepin bowling with our little girl, our friends and their daughter. We let our little ladies have their own lane & they bowled their little hearts out.
The kids had a ton of fun. The girls were pretending that the small balls were memory balls from their mutual favorite movie, ‘Inside Out’. They were so cute looking at their bowling balls & pretending they could see their core memories. If you have not yet seen the movie, it is a wonderful film that will definitely pull at your heartstrings and give some laughs as well.
All of the pretend memory ball play inspired me to make my little one some memory balls of her own.
What you will need:
These were pretty quick and easy to make.
First open the ornament & separate both halves, Use one side as a template & cut 2 photographs. Snip a little additional off of each photo so that the picture circles are just a bit smaller than the ornament. Glue the 2 photo backs to one another.
Cut 2 pieces of yellow plastic in the same size.
Crumple up, fold and bend the yellow plastic.
Use a glue gun to outline the outside of your crumpled circle. Place it inside of one halve. Line it up as close to the outside connecting edge as you can. Do this to both sides.
Add a bead of glue around the edge of the photo circles as well & glue as centered & close to edge as you can without blocking where the two ball edges meet.
Click your 2 sides together & add a ribbon or yarn as needed. My sweet girl adored her new memory balls. She even asked if we could make more memories. My answer, we will always make new memories.

Love this and truly perfect memory ball inspired from Inside Out indeed 🙂
She loves these. She is looking at them every day.
