Materials: a balloon; an air pump and a permanent marker.
Inflate a balloon leaving a seven—inch flat tail (Pic 1).
Twist the first two—inch bubble. It’s the muzzle (Pic 2).
Twist the second one—inch bubble (Pic 3).
Twist the third one—inch bubble (Pic 4).
Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the second and the third) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 5). This step is marked with arrows between points A and B on the scheme. You have made the head of the mouse.
The next four bubbles you twist to make the legs of the mouse. Twist the fourth one—inch bubble (Pic 6).
Twist the fifth one—inch bubble (Pic 7).
Twist the sixth one—inch bubble (Pic 8).
Twist the seventh one—inch bubble (Pic 9).
Lock both ends of the chain of the last four (the fourth through the seventh) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 10). This step is marked with arrows between points B and D on the scheme. You have made a loop of four bubbles.
Twist the eighth three—inch bubble (Pic 11).
Lock the free end of the eighth bubble (Point E on the scheme) by forcing it between the fifth and sixth bubbles (Pic 12 and 13). This step is marked with arrows between points C and E on the scheme.
The ninth bubble is the tail of the mouse. Split the ninth bubble to make the tenth one—inch bubble. Pump the tenth bubble to the end of the flat tail (Pic 14). You have made the funny tail.
Use the permanent marker to draw the face (Pic 15 and 16). Congratulations, you have made the mouse.
You can make a bracelet. Stretch the tail around your hand and lock the free end of the ninth bubble between the first bubble (muzzle) and the eighth bubble (body). This step is marked with red arrows between points F and A on the scheme. Stretch the flat part of the tail and lock the free end of the tenth bubble between the eighth bubble (body) and the rear legs of the mouse (Pic 17 and 18). This step is marked with the red arrows between point G and E on the scheme. Congratulations, you have made the bracelet. Have fun and happy twisting :)
