Every gift wrapping party needs gift balloons. Turn cube balloons into perfect presents with a few supplies from the party store.

  1. Inflate the cube balloons with a Balloon Time Helium Tank and tie with ribbon. Mylar balloons will float for up to four days, so you can even do this the day or two before your party. Note: altitude will affect balloon float time.
  2. Use a glue dot to adhere the end of your Mylar streamer to the bottom of one side of the balloon, right next to the tail. Pull that streamer all the way around the balloon, over the top and to the other side. Trim to the correct length and use another glue dot to adhere to the bottom of the balloon again.
  3. Repeat these steps on the other sides of the balloon so there is a ribbon running down all four sides.
  4. Remove the protective backing on the adhesive on your bow and stick it right on top of the balloon. It is important that the bows are no larger than 3 1/2 inches for the balloon to float properly.

Note: Adult supervision is required when using balloons. Please read all warnings and precautions on the Balloon Time carton.
