July 4th Hot Air Balloon Light
Indoors or out, this compact hot air balloon is bound to light up the atmosphere. Place it on a party table indoors or feature it on a party patio table. I've done the design work for you. Just print on card stock and cut. Instructions are included for craft knife users as well as Silhouette machine users. The LED battery operated light guarantees placement anywhere. Just insert it into the center of the balloon panels. Position the project near a wall and watch the stars reflect, creating fun designs. Oh beautiful indeed!
This project can be cut with the Silhouette Curio machine, the Cameo 3, and other machines. Download the cut file above that's right for you or the pdf file which includes instructions and the template.

Step 2 - CK - You can choose to alternate both designs for your balloon or use only one for all the panels. Print eight panels on card stock and cut them out. Do not punch out the stars until step six. (Stars shown here are not printed on your template.)
step 9 - Place clear tape along the overlap to hold the tube shape. Set the tube over the light unit to be sure it stands flush with the surface.
