Tapers & Starpoints
Love and Winter

Jean Eddy, CBA, Pioneer Balloon
August, 2011


Qualatex came out with a bunch of new colors of tapers and starpoints this year. We think they provide a lot of possiblities for new and exciting decor for fall and winter. In discussing this with Pioneer we learned that Jean Eddy, CBA has come up with several new designs involving tapers and starpoints. WE LOVE THEM! Her original designs were a love theme. But as you can see in the images below these designs are adaptable to many things including Winter and New Years. Also included below are links to the pdf instructions sheets provided by Qualatex. We hope this inspires you!
