Hot air balloon images have been a favorite trend for a few years now. They’ve popped up in pattern and surface design, home decor, paper crafts, and party decor. I love the hot air balloon trend, and thought it would be fun to combine it with some of my favorite paper for party decor–honeycomb paper! A match made in heaven, don’t you think?
This hot air balloon party idea is perfect for a baby shower or toddler birthday party. First I created a fun framed sign that can be hung on a wall or placed on the party buffet table. I added a honeycomb hot air balloon in the center and then a small patterned paper basket underneath attached with paper straws. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut some smaller hot air balloons and the title of one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books.
And, finally here’s a fun idea for a DIY party invitation–a pop-up honeycomb hot air balloon card! Your guest will love the fun surprise when they open the invitation.
I shared these fun ideas recently on a local Utah daytime talk show, Studio 5. You’ll find a tutorial for making these fun invites at the end of the segment below. Enjoy!
