Holly Balloon Gift Toppers | Oh Happy Day!

Materials needed: Holly leaf template, green cardstock, scissors, stapler, 1/4″ single hole punch, 5″ mini balloons in red

Step 1: Print out the holly leaf template.
Step 2: Use the template to cut out both the large and small leaves out of green cardstock. You will need three small leaves and three large leaves per gift topper.
Step 3: Cut a 2” slit at the bottom of the small leaf. Overlap the split ends of the leaf. Your leaf will start to take on a cupped shape. Place the small leaf on top of the big leaf and staple. Punch a hole at the bottom of the leaf bunch. Repeat for the remaining leaves.
Step 4: Inflate your mini balloons about 1.5″ in diameter. You want your balloons to be small and round. Pull the tail of one balloon through the holes of the 3 leaf bunches. Repeat with the other balloons.
Step 5: Attach the finished gift topper to your present for the holly-days!
