Card Factory Balloon Weight
Advantages: Holds the balloon down
We have a card factory shop in our local highstreet which I think was probably partly to blame for why the Clinton cards closed down. I know I always buy my cards from Card Factory as they are so much cheaper than there are in Clinton so it was inevitable they were not going to survive, when you can buy 10 cards for £1 in Card Factory that are of good quality and look good why go anywhere else!
One of the things I buy fairly frequently (at least three or four times a year) are helium balloons. I always buy one for my kids on their birthday as they love balloons and I like to have a big number balloon for them on their actual day so its waiting for them in the lounge when they get up. My little boy didn't really appreciate it this year as he was only 1 but my little girl loves them. I got some for my husband last year as well when he turned 40 and took them to the restaurant where we had a surprise party for him.
When you purchase a foil balloon from Card Factory you firstly choose what you want from the wide selection they have on show. I usually go for a foil number one like I said in either silver or the purple colour. Then, in order to make sure that the helium balloon does not float away or just float up to the ceiling you choose a balloon weight to which to tie it to. A balloon weigh is basically a sort of paperweight and is in a semi circle form. This is then covered with shiny foil just like that of the balloon and at the top it has some shredded foil to make it look fun and partyish. Stuck on it very discreetly you will find a little plastic tab with a hole in it to which you can tie the string from the end of the balloon. They will ask you in the shop how long you want the string to be so if you want quite short balloons you can do that or you can have them longer if you wish.
The nice thing is that there are lots of colours of balloon weights you can choose from so you can either choose one to match the colour of your balloon or you can choose a different colour in order to make it look contrasted. The weights are quite heavy and really do hold up the balloon. They are easy enough to move around the floor though as my kids love picking the balloons up and moving them but they do not damage your floor or anything like that. Each weight costs just 49p so its not very costly at all to control your helium balloon.
