Personalized Mylar Balloons

Do you love specialty balloons? But hate the price?  Well look no further!

Last year for Carter's Birthday I bought some awesome oversized balloons for his party through Bargain Balloons.

This year, they didn't have any that matched our theme perfectly. So I had to compromise!

Using some free printables off Nick Jr. and some great solid color mylars from Bargain Balloons, I made these great Yo Gabba Gabba Balloons.

They were my favorite thing at the party, but I love balloons in general!

With some glue ( basic glue stick worked well!), and the printables, I went from this.


After ordering my mylar balloons in the colors I needed, I waited a couple days and they were here! 


Using a regular glue stick, I glued the images to the balloon.
I found that when I glued them after they were full they were less likely to fall off.  
The images near the edges wanted to pop off, but the center glued ones worked well.


Here they are in action!
