How to Bring the Party…in a Box
– Knot three 10′ pieces of string together in the middle, so that there are six 5′ strings coming out from each side of the center
– Attach bunting to each of the 6 strings — you can simply fold and staple a square piece of card stock so that you have lots of mini triangles, or you can attach vertical lines of string with card stock threaded through (I did both)
– Once all your bunting is attached, tie your balloons onto the ends of the strands to form a web. Continue tying balloons until you are satisfied with the shape and so that the strings all float due to the helium in the balloons.
– Gently and neatly stuff the entire web into the box, seal and deliver!
Note: most party supply shops can add a special liquid called Hi-Float to your balloons so that they will last for several days. That makes shipping this bad boy overnight another possibility (and a great surprise for whoever is lucky enough to receive it).
