How to: Message Puzzle in Balloon Bouquet

Here is a quick tutorial on how to make a Message Puzzle and put them in a bouquet of balloons. This is a fun way to tell someone how much you care about them.

Here's what you'll need:
1 piece of paper
Exacto Knife or Scissors
9 balloons
Sewing Pin

Take your paper and make a 3x3 grid. I used 2in squares

 Free hand puzzle like pieces using your grid as a guide.(*I used marker so it would show in the picture).

 Cut out the 3x3 Grid (not cutting out the pieces yet). Turn over and write your message.

 Turn back over and cut out the puzzle pieces with exacto knife or scissors

 Roll up each puzzle piece (One at a time. Use a marker to help roll) and stuff carefully in a balloon.

Take your message filled balloons to a local party or grocery store that has a helium tank

 Have them turn your message filled balloons into a bouquet of balloons

Don't forget to leave a sewing pin so your special someone has a way to easily pop the balloon and get your message!
I'm doing this for my husband on the 4th day of Valentines.
