New Year's Eve is a wonderful time for crafting. (As are the other 364 or 365 days of the year.) Welcome the new year and get a jump on your resolution to spend more time creating with this fun and easy project!
Materials: colorful cardstock or construction paper, scissors, glue, cloud punch, number stickers, and a pen
Start by cutting out ten balloons in different colors. I chose one of my favorite color schemes. Cut an 11th balloon that is significantly smaller than the others. Glue the larger balloons to the middle of a blue background paper. Add some clouds toward the top of the paper. (You can draw them in white or cut them out freehand if you don't have a cloud punch.) Layer the smaller balloon over one of the clouds. Add number stickers to the larger balloons to show the upcoming year (2016). Use a smaller sticker to show the digit of the ending year (5). If you don't have number stickers, just write the numbers. Use a pen to draw the balloon strings. That's all there is to it!
