Festive Balloons Birthday Gift Wrapping Idea

Balloon Birthday Gift Wrapping Idea

My niece had a birthday last week. She lives far away (not that I could have seen her regardless) and so her mom arranged a surprise virtual Zoom party for family and friends to wish her a happy birthday. It was a bright spot in what has been a hard time for everyone—even us lucky ones who have remained healthy. I was touched after the party to see photos of friends dropping off gifts and leaving them at the curb of her house, and even more thankful when I heard that that sweet girl decided it was the “best birthday ever.” If you are doing the same or mailing gifts to someone having a birthday, here is an extra festive gift wrapping idea that you can use. I have a balloon paper punch, but you can achieve a similar effect with a circle punch or even just use scissors.  I hope you enjoy it.

Balloon Paper Gift Wrapping Idea

STEP 1 Punch Balloons

Use your paper punch to cut out the balloons from scrap paper. I used 6, but if you have a larger or smaller gift box, you can adjust.

STEP 2 Tape Balloons

Use adhesive foam dots to attach the balloon cut outs to your wrapped gift. This will give it a three dimensional look

STEP 3 Draw Strings & Attach Bow

I used a sharpie to draw the strings for my balloon bouquet. I then took a small piece of twine and tied a bow, then attached it to package near the bottom of the strings.
