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!
