Frame Your Hot Air Balloon Card Or Give It As Is – Valentine’s Day Hot Air Balloon Heart Cards Ingredients
- Foam Hearts. I used both glittered and non-glittered
- Construction Paper, Cardboard or Cardstock. I used construction paper & a piece of cardboard.
- A pair of scissors
- A pencil or pen
- Glue and Glue Stick
- A flat, clean work surface. I used my crafting table.
- Using your scissors, cut your choice of paper to the desired size and shape. I went with a basic 4×6″ rectangle.
- Using white paper & a pencil or pen, draw clouds for each card you’ll be creating. You can make them as small or large as you like. I used 2 clouds per card.
- Glue the clouds onto the card.
- For each heart balloon, you will need 3 hearts of the same size. You can select any colors you wish. With mine, I really liked the finished look when I created them with one balloon having 2 pink hearts and 1 red heart in the center and the other balloon having 2 red hearts and 1 pink heart in the center.
- Glue one half of each heart back to back to make the hot air balloon shape.
- Once dried, you can glue the hot air balloons onto the card and allow them to dry.
- Using a pencil, pen or fine tipped sharpie marker, draw your basket, balloon strings and other decorations. Perhaps write “Your love lifts me up”, “Love is in the air” or any other clever Valentine phrase!
- Now that you’re finished with the basic design you can keep them simple or let your imagination run free! Use a glass-free frame to put your card in as a wall hanging or to sit on a desk or mantle. Upcycle an old, unwanted magnet by gluing it to the back of a card & you can display it on your fridge!

What is the most popular shape of balloons?
1) Latex Balloons – The most common type of balloons is of course the latex balloons. These balloons inflate to an oval shape, are made of recyclable latex, and can be easily customized by screen printing your logo, text, or artwork design. They are usually available in size range from 9 inches to 18 inches.
The most common and popular size is the 11″ personalized latex balloons, followed by the 9″ ones. In general, latex balloons take helium well – usually lasting anywhere from 10 hours to 14 hours of float time, although various factors, in particular, how the custom latex balloons are sealed, or how much helium is used are huge factor in determining float time.
If cost is a concern for you, do keep in mind that the smaller the balloon, the less helium you will need to use. Latex balloons are also very flexible in the sense that they can be used without helium. Using balloon accessories is extremely popular, because you don’t need to purchase or rent helium tanks, which can save you money. Any imprinted latex balloons can also be used with a universal valve. These valves can only be used with latex balloons, and it makes inflating them much easier. You just stick it straight to the nozzle of the inflation device and the balloon inflates super easily! The only drawback of using these valves with the balloons is they do reduce float times slightly.

There’s a wide range of colours to choose from, they’re easy to move and place in whatever formation you choose—and best yet, they can easily be reused!

How do you make simple balloon twists?
Tips about balloon twisting for beginners – • Start to twist the balloon from the beginning of the balloon (from the side that has the knot) • In order to make a twist in the balloon, pinch the balloon with your finger and thumb at the place you want to create the twist.
- Then, roll the rest of the balloon 3 or 4 times.
- When you want to create the second twist you will need to place the first twist (to hold it) between your pinky finger and your ring finger.
- Pinch the balloon again with your index finger and thumb (that are now free again) • Continue creating more twists in the balloon.
After each twist, keep on holding the two ends of the balloon so it won’t come undone. • In order to stop holding the balloon you have to create a “lock” in the balloon • A lock is made by twisting 2 (or more) twists together Good luck and don’t forget to check our great courses about balloon twisting
