I started with a pack of greeting cards for a $1.00 from Michael's and I added old music and text, a computer generated word on computer-printed background and string. I used a bit of brown ink for shading on the balloons. I punched holes on either side of the balloon bottom and threaded it through them and tied a knot. I then cut a little slit through the bottom corner and pushed the string through with a flat head screwdriver to the inside and taped it. I added a Bible verse from Jeremiah 29:11--" 'I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future' " and glued it over the exposed thread on the inside. There you have it--multiple cards and very inexpensive but fun to make.
