Attach one triangle to each exposed side of the pentagon by gluing the flaps together.
Attach one triangle to the right side of each triangle attached in the previous step.
To create the sphere shape, attach all the triangles on the outermost edge together as demonstrated in the diagram below.
Create another set of 5 and assemble in the pentagon shape, and glue to the open end of the sphere to complete the bauble.
