Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 2

    Get out your muffin cups. I purchased these muffin cups from this Etsy Shop. Although you can buy them in several places.

  • Step 3

    Blow up white balloons. You can also use helium balloons. Hang from fishing line, wire, or ribbon.

  • Step 4

    Using a hole punch, make 4 holes into the top of each muffin cup, equal distance.

  • Step 5

    Thread the corresponding ribbon taped onto the balloon into the hole of the muffin cup and knot.

  • Step 6

    Tip: If your ribbon around the balloon isn’t smooth to the balloon then bring the ribbon down until it is. Take the ribbon together at the back of the balloon.

  • Step 7

    The first set of travel party decorations I used are Paper Airplane Birthday Party Printable Kit by LePartieSugar
