The WINNERS of our UGlu® Summer Balloon Art Contest!

We want to thank EVERYONE again who participated in our first ever UGlu® Themed contest! We received so many incredible entries! It was truly difficult for our team to select our top favorites from so much talent.

With that said, there can only be 3 top prize winners – but we chose some Honorable Mentions as well!

Discover the winners and check out their wonderful balloon art below:

1st Place Winner of our UGlu Summer Balloon Art Contest is Miriam Barajas Carmona of BalloonsHandByHand

1st Place: Miriam Barajas Carmona

CONGRATULATIONS Miriam, our top prize winner of the UGlu® Summer Balloon Art Contest, and the first ever winner of a UGlu® contest held by us here at Pro Tapes®!

What an incredibly colorful and lively balloon arrangement, and what a great photo of her work, too! The bright colors, neatness, professional design, and overall conformity to the Summer theme is what made Miriam’s entry a smashing success.

Here’s what Miriam had to say about her submission:

“My project is based on the theme of Aloha. It is a garland and a balloon with the number 50 (a very special age to continue celebrating!) It includes many blooming colors. The garland has many small balloons, and that is where I always use Pro Tapes® products. I used UGlu® in the balloons on the base part of the number 50 and I also used them to hold the small balloons together and to glue all the flowers and leaves. UGlu® saves me so much work; it does everything! UGlu® keeps each balloon in place even when they are in this parallel position.”

As the first place winner, Miriam will be receiving:

  • One (1) UGlu® T-Shirt 
  • UGlu® Sample Product Kit (contains several samples of products from our UGlu® product line)
  • UGlu® coffee mug
