VIntage Emporium and New Flowers from Prima

I created this hot air balloon for CHA.  I used the new Vintage Emporium Collection, some new Prima Flowers and of course, Prima Doily Dies!  It was such a fun project to create.  Of course, it's always fun to create when you have brand spankin' now products that are so fabulous!!!

There was a reason that I used the dies, too!  My balloon is layered doily dies that I paper mached around a balloon.  (I used a layer of tissue paper for the first layer.)  There are lots of openings that allowed me to use Prima Lumies tucked in so it would light up.  I was super happy with the way it turned out.  The Lumies are threaded from the bottom through the straws and into the balloon.  To turn it on, all you have to do is turn it over and give the Lumies a twist. 

You can see some of the lovely new Prima glittered flowers in this photo.  I used both new and old things that I loved to embellish it.

The banner and the 'basket' were made from the new Vintage Emporium papers. 

You don't want to miss a single day on the Prima Blog!  All the new CHA releases are there along with  so much inspiration from the design team!
