1. Using patterns trace and cut balloons from light blue, purple, and light green foam sheets. Using a black marker, outline top edges of each balloon.
2. Using the pattern trace the confetti design onto one sheet of orange foam. This will be your front album cover.
3. Referring to the photo paint the confetti pieces with acrylic paint colors. Then, using the black marker write the word “Party” in several places on the orange foam sheet. Continue using the black marker to add detail to the orange cover. Let dry completely.
4. Cut small pieces of Velcro and adhere to the back of the balloons. Before adhering to the album cover, slide photos of friends and other party goers behind the balloon openings. Then adhere to album cover.
5. Measure and mark a spot along the left side of the front album cover, 2” down from the top edge and 2” up from the bottom edge. Punch holes where marked. Repeat this step using the remaining orange foam sheet for the back album cover. Align covers and slide loose leaf binder rings through holes.
