‘Cupid’s Heart’ Balloon Sticks

As I’m writing this I’m eyeing the recent explosion of ‘pink’ posts on Oh Happy Day and thinking it may seem a little extreme if not for the fact that pink is THE BOMB and we must all bow down to The God of Pink so, phew.

Anyway, back to the regularly scheduled programming… If you’re in love with our mini heart balloons as much as I am, you’ll think this project of turning them into mini Cupid’s Hearts is the gosh darn cutest thing ever. And you’d be right. Gorgeous for photo booth props, party favors or just a cute gift for your current crush.
