  • cardboard box
  • wrapping paper
  • ribbon
  • balloons (filled wth helium)
  • scissors
  • clear tape


  1. Wrap a cardboard box in wrapping paper. Cover all sides and flaps, so it looks like an evenly covered gift.
  2. Measure a long strand of ribbon, so it is long enough to fit around the box with excess ribbon to tie closed. Tape to the bottom of the box.
  3. Place ribbon on each helium filled balloons. With tape, attach the balloon’s ribbon to the bottom of the box. This way, when the box is opened, the balloons will fly up, but not away.
  4. Gently push the balloons down and into the box.
  5. Close the box with ribbon. Tie ribbon with a knot or a bow.
  6. Surprise a special someone or share your own exciting news!
