I love the look of Hot Air Balloons floating against the blue sky or the bright colors of a sunset. They look like a most elegant form of
~ Escape ~
To make this balloon you will need the following supplies:
3.5 and a 2.5 inch circle.
3.5 x 6 inch card stock
2 colors of Floss, 4 ft long
3.5 and 2.5 length of trim
Assorted mini-brads
Cut the 2.5 inch circle in half, then cut 1/2 inch off the rounded end.
Ink the edges of both circles.

Use dimensional adhesive or craft foam cut to size under the circle.
 Adhere the circles to the card front.
Use the mini-brads to tack the trim to the center of the balloon and the rim of the basket.
Thread the floss between the brads, using one color at a time and skipping every other brad, as shown. To keep the floss from pulling too tight place a sharpie or other cylinder between the card front and the floss as you wrap it.
Tie off the ends and glue them to the under side.
Place card front on a 5x7 card base.
