  • Step 2:Starting with the shortest piece, purple, bend in half and glue the ends together. Bend the blue ribbon around the purple ribbon and glue at the ends. Continue gluing the remaining colors on top of each other to form the balloon. Finally, glue the last three ribbons together at the top center to flatten the top of the balloon slightly.
