Introduction: Paper Balloons

I know I usually do 'ducttapestuff', but this time I wanted to make something that's just COLORED with duct tape!

Step 1:

First, take some paper, scissors, or an exacto knife, and some duct tape.

Step 2:

Then fold it sort of into a triangle-type shape

Step 3:

Then either mark or cut where the end of the folded paper is

Step 4:

Then undo the fold and cut a straight strip out of the paper. That makes the paper a square, but you can make it square however you want

Step 5:

Step 6:

Then fold it into a rectangle

Step 7:

Make sure your creases are really good!

Step 8:

Then fold it again into a square. Turn it so that all four open edges are on the bottom, and the crease is on the left

Step 9:

Then take one flap and put your finger in it

Step 10:

Then sort of fold it over

Step 11:

So it's sort of like a triangle with a almost half square on the side

Step 12:

Then flip it over and do that on the other side

Step 13:

Step 14:

Then take one flap and fold it and line it up with the crease in the middle

Step 15:

Do that on the other side

Step 16:

Now flip it over and do that on the sides

Step 17:

Step 18:

Then take ANOTHER flap and fold it into the middle

Step 19:

Do that on the other side an flip it over and do that on both sides

Step 20:

Then take a flap from the top, (if its not on the top it's in the bottom) and put it into the little pocket created

Step 21:

Step 22:

Them do it on both sides , flip it over and do it on those sides

Step 23:

Step 24:

Then cut four 4" strips

Step 25:

Then center it on the balloon

Step 26:

Then pull apart the two flaps and fold over the excess duct tape

Step 27:

Step 28:

Then fold over one of the flaps,

Step 29:

Then center some duct tape on that, and separate some flaps and fold over the excess duct tape

Step 30:

Do that on all sides so it looks like this:
