How To: Create a Miniature Hot Air Balloon with Square Prints
There’s always something to celebrate - whether it’s someone's birthday, a special anniversary, a promotion or a new baby on the way, it’s nice to enjoy those happy moments. In order to celebrate, it’s a thoughtful idea to create a homemade gift and we’ve got just the idea for you. Read on and we’ll show you how to make a beautiful gift that looks like a miniature hot air balloon!
What You Need:
- Retro Prints in a set of 16
- 1 transparent confetti balloon, filled with helium
- Decorative String
- Small piece of craft cardboard
- Black felt-tip pen
To start, use our online CEWE Creator Software to design a set of 16 Retro Prints with your own photos, Clipart and fonts. Once created and ordered, you will automatically receive your photos in the decorative picture box. Now, all you have to do is attach a matching balloon to it filled with confetti. Plus, there is no need to purchase any wrapping paper as the end result speaks for itself. Simple!
A Box Full of Happy Moments
To ensure that your picture box hangs straight and in the middle below the balloon, tie a piece of string around the box on the left and right side. To keep it tidy, tie the ends individually on the back. Then, use a third piece of string to connect the two previously attached ribbons above the box and use them to attach the balloon.
By the way, balloons with confetti like these are available as a ready-made set in specialist shops, where you can have them inflated with helium. If you’d like, write a small greeting on a piece of cardboard, add a hole using a hole punch and then tie the card to the picture box.
And voila! The finished birthday surprise looks like a miniature hot air balloon.
The Gift of Time Together
In the box, your recipient will find your most beautiful photos together. In the CEWE Creator Software, you can design the Retro Prints individually according to your wishes and add a message using the text function. Do you have some funny snaps of the two of you together? Or maybe you know what their favourite photos are from their favourite trip? The more personal, the better.
Top Tip: We love using lots of Clipart to make them as personal and fun as possible!
Beautifully Packaged, Perfectly Preserved
If you’re celebrating a birthday, place your balloon alongside a cake, or if it's an anniversary on the cards, add a bouquet or flowers or their favourite sweet treat. You can also swap your prints for a square photo book and use it as your basket instead! We can guarantee that they’ve never received a gift like it! Happy creating!
