Graphic 45 - Christmas Carol Balloon

Hi Peeps!!

When I made my halloween balloon I received a few messages asking for a tutorial on how I made the balloon, so I decided to make another but this time with a Christmas theme. The wonderful Christmas Carol collection suited the theme perfectly. 

This collection is stunning having lots of images for a fussy cutters dream and the colours are so deep and rich. Add a little gold trimming and you have all you need to create a stunning project.

I have added a fussy cut cluster to the balloon. I love the little lanterns.

A few fussy cut patrons to ride in the balloon. I added some gold wire around the basket for an extra special touch.

Here is my tutorial

What do you do with each of the themed balloons once you have completed making them? Do you use them as decorations each year, or do you sell them or give them as gifts? They are beautiful!!!
