You've Been Framed - Luc Bertrand, CBA, Shares his Linear Photo Frame Perfect for New Years Parties!

Once again, Luc Bertrand, CBA, of WaW Balloons in Vichte, Belgium has very kindly shared one of his designs with the readers of the Very Best™️ Balloon Blog! Who would have thought it would be so simple to use the Northstar Balloons™️ L letters to make this quick and original photo frame! 




Step 1.

You will need:
 2 - 34" Northstar Letter L - available in Gold, Silver, Magenta, Blue and Rose Gold.
Glue Dots & Stretch® Balloon Tape 
5" Qualatex® Latex Balloons and other finishing accessories 
Attach two corners with the shown tabs using any kind of glue dot. Luc likes to use Premium Balloon Accessories® Double-Sided Tape Dots #33156 - available through some Qualatex Distributors. Luc   then re-enforces this connection with Stretchy Balloon Tape on the tip of the balloon.


Step 2.

Slide a VERY loose 4-balloon cluster of 5" latex balloons inflated to approximately 4" in-between the two foils in both of the connected corners.
Make a loose triplet of three organically sized 5" balloons and wrap these around the two most external balloons from the first cluster. This keeps the first cluster in place and gives an “organic” touch.  Voila! - that is the basic frame shape!

Style as desired 

  • Add the date or year to the  top - such as New Years 2020!
  • Add someone's initials - this could be for a wedding, anniversary, Valentine's Day or other personal event.
  • The frame can be filled with a message 18” foil as shown below.
  • Be creative... add your own style and detailing! 



When using the small 16” letter, these can be used to make a base for an air-filled design - Luc used this concept for his fairy design below.


Once again, a huge thank you to Luc for sharing one of his brilliant design concepts with the Very Best Balloon Blog! 

Happy Ballooning!
