Balloon X


CC0

Materials: a balloon; an air pump; sewing thread and scissors.


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

Twist the first soft two—inch bubble (Pic 2).

Lock both ends of the first bubble in one lock twist (Pic 3). This step is marked with arrows between points A and B on the scheme.

Twist the second four—inch bubble (Pic 4).

Twist the third soft two—inch bubble (Pic 5).

Lock both ends of the third bubble in one lock twist (Pic 6). This step is marked with arrows between points C and D on the scheme.

Twist the fourth four—inch bubble (Pic 7).

Twist the fifth soft two—inch bubble (Pic 8).

Lock both ends of the fifth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 9). This step is marked with arrows between points E and F on the scheme.

Twist the sixth two—inch bubble (Pic 10). You will pop this bubble.

Twist the 7th soft two—inch bubble (Pic 11).

Lock both ends of the 7th bubble in one lock twist (Pic 12). This step is marked with arrows between points G and H on the scheme.

Twist the eighth four—inch bubble (Pic 13).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last five (the fourth through the eighth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 14). This step is marked with arrows between points D and I on the scheme.

Twist the ninth four—inch bubble (Pic 15).

Twist the tenth soft two—inch bubble (Pic 16).

Lock both ends of the tenth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 17). This step is marked with arrows between points J and K on the scheme. The rest of the balloon is the eleventh bubble.

Cut off the eleventh bubble and tie off the end. Pop the sixth bubble (Pic 18). Fix all bubbles in proper positions. Congratulations, you have made the capital letter X. Choose appropriate color sewing thread to link the letter X with other letters. As you can see here the light color thread is hardly visible on a light background. After you made and connected all letters in words you can attach the signs you made to a wall with a sticky tape. Have fun and happy twisting :)
