3-D Hot Air Balloon Paper Decorations
These rainbow-colored balloons are made to look like they're floating in mid-air! We used one template to cut, fold, and hang a batch of these easy-to-make paper decorations.
This idea comes from Digital Editor Alexandra Churchill. They were part of an "Up, Up, and Away" themed baby shower.
These instructions give you the steps to make a single decoration, but if you're making them in bulk as you would for a party, place the template on a sheet of cardstock, and trace as many as will fit onto the sheet — this will save time and paper. They can hang from baker's twine or (to achieve the illusion of free suspension) monofilament.
