Let me back up a bit. This is St. Patrick's Day fun. I saw this at on-hand modern. I loved it. Sending a balloon in a box. We have a special person that we wanted to send a special treat to.
Lou and I stopped by the flower shop with our box all ready. We had the gal at the counter roll up a $2 bill and insert it into the balloon prior to inflating. We tied it to a card we printed from Make It Do. We used them last year with the kids too. I love $2 bills. (sorry these photos are taken with my ipod)
We sealed it up (and labeled it carefully) and immediately took it to the post office. I knew time was not on our side for a helium balloon needing to travel a couple hundred miles.
We got an email when the balloon arrived at it's destination and the poor thing had shriveled up pretty well. It was a sorry looking balloon at that point. But, when it was popped, the $2 was found.
