I got inspired by Laura Hayden of A Girl on the Park Blog to make this really awesome 3D Hotair Ballon .
I altered the Teapot from the Tea for you and Me SVG Kit from SVGCUTS.com 
and cut it in 8.5 inches out of plain cardstock on my Silhouette Cameo.
The paneles are cut from German Designer cardstock.Then i glued self adhesive Metal border around the edges and Prima Flowers on all the Glue areas from the ropes.
The Basket is made out of the Caramel Apple Pie SVG Kit from SVGCUTS.com
I cut the Bushel Basket out of plain cardstock and send it through my cuttlebug in 
a Distressed Stripes Folder .When i hang it up i will put a little LED lightchain in the Basket it will make it shine so bright in the evenings.
 It will light up my Parents in Laws Livingroom so i have to make one more for myself.

  1. This turned out beautiful. Thank you for posting this link on SvgCuts Facebook page.

  2. awesome job. You have it sitting so it looks like the heat/light is holding it up there. Fabulous idea

  3. Elke, you did a beautiful job! Everyone that I have made these balloons for have just loved them. I'm in the middle of another one for a birthday girl. I've started using the bottom of the cupcake box in one of SVG Cuts' kits for the basket. Mary's files are so versatile. The papers you used are gorgeous.
