How to Decorate Balloons with Ribbons

You know I love a good balloon craft! These DIY ribbon balloons are my latest idea. They are such a simple way to make plain balloons extra festive for a birthday party or special occasion. I partnered with Brother to use the new P-touch Embellish ELITE Ribbon and Tape Printer to customize some of the ribbons for a birthday party celebration. You can use the label printer to add any message you want to a variety of P-touch Embellish ~1″ Wide Satin Ribbons.

A group of these ribbon balloons makes for a simple and sweet party centerpiece. I used balloon sticks, so no helium is required. The best thing about these air-inflated balloons is that they will stay looking good for days. You can make them well in advance of your party, and if you ever need to replace a balloon, just swap it out on the balloon stick!
