    So here is the finished product. All together it cost about $25.00. this was for toys, candy, tissue paper the rest I alreadyhad at the house.

    Click the image to open in full size.

    Okay. First to make the paste use flour and water. mix it where it is a little runny and add about a tablespoon of elmers glue.
    rip up news paper
    then blow up a balloon (I made mini ones so I only blew them up about half way)
    dip the paper in the paste and spread it on the balloon.
    put about 2 layers on it then tie a string around it,hang it up and let it dry.
    **Leave enough of the balloon uncovered so you can fit candy inside.
    once it dries put the stuff inside and then put a layer of your pasted paper on the uncovered part.
    let that dry the decorate.
    I only used tissue paper (folded it up making a flower design) then glued it down
    you can use anything to decorate it.

    I really liked the way they turned out,but I am trying to do a million projects at once so they are taking me a while to get them all done. I have about 5 more to go.
