It is pretty simple to make the  Penstand. You need just a minimum of 2 Soccer ball diecuts and a strip of thick cardstock to make the  wall. For aethestic and functional strength you can add 2 extra black circles to form the  basic framework as shown in the  picture below.

The curved wall is made using a strip of card stock with wedges cut on the  sides to enable you to easily stick the  strip in a curved fashion to the  circular sides of your Ball Penstand. Vary the  length of the  strip according to how big you want the  opening of the  penstand to be.

You can add a base to the  Ball Penstand to help make it more sturdy.
