Twist the eleventh two—inch bubble of the second balloon (Pic 38).

Twist the twelfth two—inch bubble of the second balloon (Pic 39).

Lock the free end of the twelfth bubble (point G on the scheme 2) of the second balloon around the first bubble of the first balloon (Pic 40).

The rest of the second balloon is the thirteenth bubble. Cut off the thirteenth bubble and tie off the end. Congratulations, you have made the six points star or the Star of David (Pic 41 and 42). Have fun and happy twisting :)
