To make it -

1. Die cut 6 of the Balloon Base shapes from white card.

2. Die cut 6 of the Balloon Lid shapes from white card.

3. Using the 2 dies shown, die cut 6 blue decorative panels and glue them to the lids.

4. Using both dies shown die cut 6 blue decorative panels and glue them to the balloon bases.

5. Gently shape the balloon base pieces with a bone folder.

6. Attach the base pieces together by the tabs with hi tack tape. NB. Attach the top and bottom tabs together first and the ones in between will easily fall into place.

7. Shape the balloon lid pieces in the same way and attach together with hi tack tape on the tabs.

8. Die cut the hexagonal roof.

9. Glue the roof to the top of the lid

10. Use magnets to connect your balloon base to the lid. Glue 2 small magnets to the inside of the balloon base with each on opposite sides of the rim. Place a second pair of magnets on the outer face of the same panels but DO NOT glue these in place. Allow them to be held in position by the attraction of the magnets on the inside. Place a glue dot on the exposed outer face of the two outer magnets.

11. Carefully position the finished balloon lid over the finished balloon base. Press the sides at the magnet area to transfer the positioned outer magnets from the base to the lid.

12. To create the basket, die cut 6 of the shapes above using the 2 dies shown. Then cut a hexagonal base.

13. Use the 2 dies shown to cut 6 blue patterned panels and glue to the bases. Glue together.

14. Glue all the sides together to form the base.

15. Glue the basket onto the base and add ribbon and a bow.

16. Die cut a blue tag and white letters and glue together. Add some twine to the tag. Poke a little hole in the top of the balloon and push the twine through.

17. Die cut a small blue hexagon and glue inside the lid to cover where the twine has been attached

18. Stamp the Special Delivery onto white card and die cut with the banner die. Die cut a blue banner and glue both banners together, then attach to the hot air balloon with a 3D foam pad.
