My absolute favorite day of the year is Valentine’s Day and not just because of the gifts and unsolicited hugs and kisses I get to be the recipient of- but because I am in love with the concept of LOVE and hearts and magic and pink, purple and red. And yes I am the first person to get my kids in on the Valentine’s Day action with these DIY heart shaped balloons because what greater gift can us parents give our kids than the capacity to stretch their heart muscles and let love envelop them?!
And thanks to Balloon Time keep reading for instructions on how you and your kidlets can recreate these DIY heart shaped balloons at home which is care of the uber talented Styling and Text of Studio DIY with Photos by Jeff Mindell. And if you are feeling especially crafty I have more Valentine’s Day DIY crafts .
And don’t forget to stock up on some funky balloons like this set of 12 designer balloons .
One of my favorite features of the Tank is that you can create the balloons at the party- which means no transporting them in a car!
- Balloon Time Helium Tank
- Mylar Heart Balloons
- InkJet tattoo paper
- Printable Valentine’s Day messages
- Damp paper towel or rag
Print out the messages on the tattoo paper and adhere the clear liner on top according to the instructions on the package.
Trim each message as close to the letters as possible.
Peel off the clear liner from one of the messages and lay it face down on top of the balloon, wherever you would like it. NOTE: We recommend not putting your letters within three inches of the edge of the balloon, to ensure they are legible once inflated.
Use a damp paper towel to moisten the tattoo paper completely and then peel it away, leaving the tattoo behind. Repeat as desired.
Inflate the balloon(s) with helium and tie with ribbon. And if all else fails you can always nab some funky balloons like this Rose Gold Love Balloon which inflates with just air no helium required!
