Up in a hot air balloon

Good morning friends,
The Cutting CafeNo I am not going anywhere and not in a hot air balloon, but the new challenge at Let's Craft and Create this month has  us making some hot air balloons.

The challenge is to use ribbon or twine and the sponsor this month is The Cutting Cafe. The DT have been given a hot air balloon file to work with and you can find it HERE. It is quite easy even without any cutting machines and there are a number of options with sentiments and it all comes in the file that you download.

If you have a look at the challenge site, the DT have made really lovely projects using this cutting file. Lots of inspiration.

I decided to keep it quite plain as I want to give it to a young man who will be starting a new chapter in his life soon.

I cut the card from dark blue cardstock and then cut the sections out of a sheet of Marianne design paper.

The basket was a piece of netting from mosaic tiles, and then I added twine.

The sentiment is from the file and I printed it, cut it out, added a button and attached it with some twine.

I will enter the following challenges.

Crafty Hazelnuts patterned paper...Anything goes
