I’m showing more detail for printing based on questions people have been asking. DIY large 16 balloon mosaics.
NOTE: Why I changed the percentage to 501%:
I had so many people ask why they are getting a different size when they print. I didn’t understand until I tried on another computer. Normally I always put 500% but one of my computers doesn’t show the correct size unless I increase the percentage. Just showing that some printers might be different and please check the size above the preview window before printing.

UPDATE: To use less paper – don’t click CUT MARKS or LABELS when printing. Some people lose track of how to lay the pages out but if you start horizontal across the top 4 pages and then start the next row below it.
I also started using a low temperature glue gun to attach balloons. Works so much better. – https://amzn.to/339C5F8
