3D Hot Air Balloon File Freebie!


Hello everybody! I'm am so excited to share with you today's post, especially with those of you that have the paper crafting bug! Remember my Hot Air Balloon I created last year? No?!? Click here to jog your memory! 

Recently, I have a lot of interest on the request of this file. Thanks to a lovely lady that recently requested it and used it on her blog. Thanks Dawn from Dawns Designs that Delight! Check out her version of the balloon here!  

Unfortunately for many electronic users out there this was not an SVG file, rather I had made it with the Sure Cuts A Lot software. Since receiving so much recent interest I thought I would share it with the rest of you die hard SVG lovers! Also, since I just celebrated 1 year that I started my blog last week, I thought this would be the perfect gift for all my followers! I also made the .studio file for Silhouette users. The files have been slightly modified and improved from the original SCAL file. I used the .studio file to create the balloon displayed below.


Here you see the balloon opened up... great for little treats! Would make the perfect summertime gift for someone special! This would also make a great table centrepiece for a birthday party or baby shower! Enlarge the pieces and  fill the bottom portion with some weights to keep it from being knocked over!


The paper I used come from DCWV The Kidlet Stack, all cut on the Silhouette  Cameo.


Embellish to your liking! Buttons, twine, ribbon, tape... whatever you like... it's hard to go wrong! I love the little Flair button I used here "be happy" from Paper Play Studio. Too cute! 


Hope I've inspired you all to create your own. Can't wait to see what you come up with!


Before you download...
My free files RULES!!!

  1. If you choose to download all I ask is you become a follower.
  2. Note my files are for personal use only! (Personal use means... only for you to use (no trading, or sharing of my files... let me do that!) 
  3. If you want to share, send your friends over to my blog for the download. 
  4. I'm OK with people sharing my files on their own sites as long as there is a direct link back to this blog...Give credit where credit is due! (a message to me would also be appreciated)

The zip file includes the SVG, .studio file and an instructional PDF.
Please take in to consideration that I am no professional, but if it worked for me I'm sure it will work for you. Let me know if you have any issues with it though!


Have a fantastic day! Can't wait for the snow to melt and for Hot Balloon weather again! 

Thanks for coming by! 
Happy Crafting!

swtaznlady said...

i tried to upload the svg file but it wouldn't load =(

Janis said...

Hi again Ilda, I left a comment the other day concerning your awesome hot air balloon. I was able to download to my computer & the trouble is it won't upload to design space, which is the program for the cricut explore machine. I had a couple others try & they cannot load it to design space as well. I would love this file, if possible. I appreciate it if you could let me know if the file is still available. Thanks you, janis www.scrappergrl.blogspot.com

Ilda Dias said...

Hi Janis! Not sure why this file is not working with the Cricut Explore. I can't test it as I do not have one :( I will try to find a solution for you if I can :) Sorry for the inconvenience!

Inka said...

Hi Ilda,
vielen Dank für diesen wunderschönen Heißluftballon. <3
Thanks
