3d hot air balloon – Silhouette America Blog

3d hot air balloon

I used the 3d hot air balloon shape to make a little framed art that I think would be super cute in a child’s bedroom.

The shape was designed to be hung, on a mobile, or as bunting, but instead of adhering all of the pieces to make the complete rounded shape, I used half of them and adhered the flat side to my project.  I really like the dimension the 3d shape gives to the design!

I  love the theme of this week’s challenge! There are so many awesome 3-D items to pick from in the online store right now!  When I saw this stationary box, I just fell in love with it, and I know all of you did too because it’s the most popular shape in the online store.  Wowza!
I love that the shape not only comes with the pieces to assemble the box, but also includes two different tags and a card base.  Perfect!  Now, I don’t know about the rest of you, but there are many times that I am scrambling last minute to make a card for a birthday. It happens more frequently than I’d like to admit, and sometimes my presents are given sans card. {I know! Shame.}  It seems that I always have several other types of cards, but not the one I need right now.  So, with this little set, I decided to make a bunch of blank cards and tags that I could have at the ready for any occasion.

I made some print and cut stickers with different sentiments on them.  {I doubled up on the Thank You and Happy Birthday because I use those the most!}  I made a few for the tags too.  Now I won’t be caught without a card or tag to go along with my gifts!  And speaking of gifts, wouldn’t this be a cute little gift in and of itself?

  1. I’m assuming we’re limited to submitting just one project? 3D is my favorite, so I have a lot to choose from. 🙂

    1. Yes, just one 🙂 I can’t wait to see what you create!

  2. Is the “UP UP And AWAY” a phrase available in the Silhouette store?

    1. The up, up, away were created with a font on my computer called ‘Bebas’, and the ‘and’ is a shape from the online store. You can find it in the shape bundle linked toward the bottom of the post.

  3. I missed the part where you write a bit about your project in the entry form….what to do?

  4. Great idea, love vellum overlay 🙂

  5. Love the projects Yall! What a great challenge! Congrats to the winner of last weeks challenge.

  6. Well my picture ended up side ways not sure how. But just wanted to add that I use the 3D flowers a lot on my pages they always give it that extra something.

  7. I will soon make something nice…:)

  8. I amtring to put to geather the box and for whatever reason i am having a hard time. its not working out for me. if you have any tips please let me know! megan

    1. There will be 4 individual boxes and a lid that you will assemble first. Then, you’ll glue the 4 boxes to each other, one in the back, one in the middle and the two smaller ones in front. The flat pieces are to adhere on the sides and bottom of the finished box as well as the lid. Hope that helps! 🙂

  9. Took me a couple of times, but I do believe I got it to post properly. It’s a ‘butterfly farm’ of easel type cards I’m mailing out to people today.

  10. Quite a few of the pictures don’t have links. Perhaps a little instruction is needed?

    1. Some of them won’t have links as they don’t have a personal blog or website. We wanted everyone to be able to share, so no links required. 🙂

  11. My image disappeared. Any ideas as to what I might have done wrong? It was the butterfly easel cards.

    1. I decided to try again and it’s showing as image #40. Fingers crossed that it stays.

  12. Where are the instructions for the card box? I downloaded it and now can’t find instructions 🙁

    1. The designer of the shape will usually have an assembly video tutorial on her YouTube channel, so stay tuned to for that. In the meantime, it looks a little complicated seeing all of the different pieces when you open the shape in Silhouette studio, but once you cut them out it makes a little more sense and comes together pretty easily. There will be 4 individual boxes and a lid that you will assemble first. Then, you’ll glue the 4 boxes to each other, one in the back, one in the middle and the two smaller ones in front. The flat pieces are to adhere on the sides and bottom of the finished box as well as the lid. Hope that helps! 🙂

  13. i uploaded #45 – it’s a wide image as there are 3 sides to the 3d project i wanted to show but it cropped the image into a square 🙁

    1. Me, too. I’ll do better next time… 🙁

  14. I entered a bank for entry #49. I also got a friend to join, so Tine’s entry is #48. Thanks for the fun challenge!

  15. Love at bit of dimension – so a fun challenge! Great balloon & the stationary box is stylish as well as useful. A fabulously diverse set of 3-D entries this week too. As you may have spotted, as #48, I am a friend of entry #49, Kelly. Hope to be playing along in the future as well.
    Tine 🙂

  16. Great entries!

  17. I have a question…how do I find the shapes, now that the bundle is no longer available? I’ve tried searching for the stationary box but I haven’t found the right one. I love this project!

    1. Thank you!! I really appreciate this. 🙂
