  1. Inflate the balloons. If you are using hellium, don’t put a lot of gold foil, because it will keep the ballons down and they won’t be able to float.
  2. Use the paint brush to add mod podge to the bottom of the balloon.
  3. Sprinkle the confetti on the glued spot, or place the confetti in a bowl and dip the balloon in. Press the confetti onto the balloon.
  4. Shake the balloons slightly so that the excess confetti fall off and let dry completely. If you want the confetti extra secured you can go with one more layer of mod podge on top of them and let it dry completely.

  1. Make sure the cardboard boxes are secured with packing tape. If you want you can use neutral color spray paint to paint the boxes before adding the letters.
  2. Print out the templates onto the cardstock.
  3. Start by assembling the letters. Then, use x-acto knife to cut out the inside of the letters, so that you create the stencils.
  4. Make loops with tape and stick them on the back of each stencil. Then, attach it to the box and make sure they are secure and laying flat.
  5. Use different colors to spray paint the letters onto the carboard boxes on each side. Make sure one side is dry, before removing the stencil and painting on the other side. Keep in mind that the stencil will be smaller than the box, so spray paint around the stencil as well to create the outlines.
  6. Make one box for the letter “A”, one for the letter “B” and one for the letter “C”. On each side of the box, paint the letter in a different color.

Match the colors of the blocks to your overall decor
