Hot Air Balloon Centerpiece...

A few extra blog posts happening this week for Balloon Week!

Today's post is about how to make the Hot Air Balloon Centerpiece to use for table decorations.

I made 3 of them for a birthday party this past weekend. The first two were made with scrapbook paper I had in my stash. But I'm pretty sure that the one made with the Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper (DSP) is my favorite.

You can watch the video below to see how I made it!

I enjoyed making these hot air balloons!

Here is the supply list:
*6 pieces of 6 x 6 inches of DSP
*1 piece of DSP that will fit around the can/jar used for basket
hot glue & gun
about a yard of ribbon
about 3/4 yard of string
9 beads or embellishments
about 1 to 1 1/2 cups of rice
1 cleaned can/jar
balloon template -- click here -- it is in pdf format in Dropbox (use 'actual size' formatting when printing)

* Here are the Stampin' Up! supplies used:

Carried Away Designers Series Paper
FREE (with a $50 purchase - until March 31, 2017)

Did you enjoy this video on making a hot air balloon centerpiece? I have another (smaller) centerpiece video that I will send to those that sign up for my email list by the end of February (2017).

Well, thank you for coming to Create with Me today!
