The balloon cart was one of those projects that you probably have seen pictures of but it was not covered in the tutorials.
The base of the card is made from a box I found at Michael’s Craft Store for $1.00. I choose it because it had metal mesh in the lid. I removed the latch and hinges then painted the outside and inside metallic purple. I glued a piece of Styrofoam in the bottom of the box (also painted purple).
The wheels are metal gears (glued to the box) and underneath the box I glued a wooden dowel to hold up the back of the box. The handle is made from wooden skewers and one of the chipboard swirls that came in the same set as the chipboard swirls I used for the chairs on the Ferris Wheel and some of the benches.
I glued wire in between the balloon images and a piece of heavy cardstock. The wires then fit through the mesh of the box and into the Styrofoam inside the box.
