How to make balloon flower


CC0


Dailymotion:
Materials: two balloons and an air pump.



Inflate a balloon leaving a four—inch flat tail (Pic 1).

Twist six soft bubbles of the same size. Twist the first soft five—inch bubble (Pic 2).

Twist the 2nd soft five—inch bubble (Pic 3).

Twist the third soft five—inch bubble (Pic 4).

Twist the 4th soft five—inch bubble (Pic 5).

Twist the fifth soft five—inch bubble (Pic 6).

Twist the sixth soft five—inch bubble (Pic 7).

At this point your sculpture looks like a chain of sausages. Lock both ends of each bubble in one lock twist. You may do it one bubble at a time or lack all bubbles at once. I’m going to lock all bubbles at once. Lock both ends of the chain of the six bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 8). This step is marked with arrows between points A and G on the scheme 1.

The rest of the balloon is the seventh bubble. You may use the seventh bubble as a stem or cut it off. Fold the chain of six bubbles. Lock both ends of the chain of the two (the third and the fourth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 9 and 10).


Lock both ends of the chain of two (the first and the sixth or the second and the fifth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 11).

You have made three pairs of bubbles. Fold them together (Pic 12 and 13).


Hold the ends of all bubbles between your thumb and the index finger (Pic 14 and 15).


Three bubbles are on one side of your palm and three bubbles are on the other side of your palm. Lock both ends of each bubble in one lock twist by twisting each group of three bubbles in to opposite direction (Pic 16 and 17).You have made the flower with six petals.


You may use the flower to make a bracelet. Cut off the seventh bubble (the stem). Inflate the second balloon with one—inch bubble and a long flat tail (Pic 18).

Lock both ends of the bubble in one lock twist (Pic 19). This step is marked with arrows between  points A and B on the scheme 2.

Take the flower without the stem (Pic 20).

Attach the single bubble of the second balloon between the bubbles of the first balloon (Pic 21 through 23).



Lock the free end of the second balloon between the bubbles of the first balloon (Pic 24 and 25).


Congratulations, you have made the flower and the bracelet (Pic 26 through 28). Have fun and happy twisting :)
