Hot Air Balloons
This week I cut out lots & lots of little hot air balloons from cardstock & made lots & lots of little hot air balloon ornaments. Dylan put together the images for me & once printed, they were cut out, folded in half & glued together with elmer's glue. I added a coordinating loop of embroidery floss for the hanging string.
These were used for the Young Women Excellence night where our theme was "The Sky's the Limit". They hung from branches in a vase as centerpieces & then the girls each got to take one home as a reminder of the evening.
They turned out pretty sturdy & could really be made into just about any shape or using any image. I'm thinking Christmas ornaments. In fact I think a few of these balloons just may end up on my tree this year. :)
