Paper Balloons (use up all those extras!

july 28 g
This week I share a quick, fun way to use those extra stenciled papers that we all have and save because they are so gorgeous.  These would be fun on gifts, covering a window or a doorway, and hanging off a tree!

I described this folded method with just 3 sheets in my very first post for Artistcellar back in February for Valentine’s Day.  Click here to check it out.

Step 1 – Grab those gorgeous papers waiting to be used!

Step 2 – I used something around the house to draw 6 perfect circles on the back of the papers.  Then cut out the circles and fold in half.

Step 3 – I glued the sides together to form the ball and a string in the center.

Step 4 – I sewed a few embellishments that have special meaning to me. The key from a diary I kept as a tween, the peace sign from my mother-in-law, and the silver parachutey-looking thingy from an earring I bought in India but lost it’s partner years ago.

Have fun making these lovely, colorful paper balls.  Ohhh…what if you strung a whole bunch together like a banner?
