How To Make The Hot Air Balloon Craft
Take a coloured rectangular paper and fold it into half lengthwise.
Trace and cut the big heart on the folded paper by keeping the top sides of the heart along the fold.
Unfold the paper after cutting the heart shape. his will be the card.
Take different coloured craft papers and trace the patterns from the heart air balloon card template on the coloured craft papers.
Carefully cutout the traced patterns from the craft papers.
Choose the placement of the heart air balloon.
Take any 2 medium hearts, fold them into half and apply glue along the fold.
Place the 2 folded hearts side by side on the place for the air balloon, creating another 3d heart pattern.
Take the last medium heart shape and fold it into half again.
Apply glue along the fold and carefully place it in the middle of the 2 hearts from step 3.
Now, take the rest of the air balloons patterns and glue them on their place.
Finally glue the clouds to the hot air balloon craft.
To give the clouds a little 3d look you can glue a small piece of cardstock paper below them.
Make sure to write ‘love is in the air’ on the big cloud before gluing it on the card.
Allow the glue to dry. You can create more variation of this card by using different coloured and printed papers.
