Blog Hop

Christmas Balloon


Kathleen here with a fun and whimsical table top decoration to share with you.  Robin's Nest gals are hopping with Smoothfoam today.

For the base of this project I used a 6" Smoothfoam disk.  I cut out a 6" circle from the remains of Robin's Nest Cindy Lou Dot Glitter cardstock and glued it in place on top of the disk.  The sides used 2 stripes of 8"x1" width Robin's Nest Cindy Lou Presents cardstock.
over lapped and glued in place.  A lace doily was placed underneath and glued.
cut a 8 1/2" x 2 1/2" strip of paper
score 1/2 from the top length wise and 1/2" from the bottom
score every 2" width wise with a 1/2 tab at the end
Cut the fold from the top and bottom scores

A straw was used to support the basket to the balloon.

I hope this project has inspired you to let your own creativity take flight.  Enjoy the Robin's Nest/Smoothfoam hop!
