Shabby Balloon

Morgan showed me a picture of a box from GypsyJingles Boutique to use as a basis for her balloon. This is what I came up with. The ribbon on the upper portion of the balloon was created by gathering the sheer brown ribbon, "aging" the pink velvet ribbon with Walnut Stain Distress Ink, then I tatted the top layer. There are flowers made from ribbon, paper that I created simple svg files to cut, and with stamps from Unity Stamp Company. The balloon base and basket are modifications to files from SVG Cuts along with some of my own. I've never been crazy about the Shabby Chic look, but it could grow on me (=


  1. For someone who isn't crazy about Shabby Chic...you did an amazing job, Laura! Congrats on being featured on the Unity Stamp blog!
