How to make balloon scissors

Supplies: balloons and air pump.
Inflate two balloons leaving no flat tails (Pic 1).

We can make the first bubble of any convenient size - I like to make it the size of my head (Pic 1).

Lock both ends of the first bubble in one lock twist (Pic 3). We have made the simplest one balloon hat! Or one part of the scissors.

Use another balloon to make the other part of the scissors in the same way as you made the first part (Pic 4).

Hold both balloons together about 15 - 20 cm away from the first bubbles (Pic 5).

Twist and lock in one move both balloons making about 15 - 20 cm long second bubbles. Congratulations! We have made the simplest scissors (Pic 6). You can use them as it is.

I like to make additional bubbles to keep the scissors in proper position. Twist the third about 3 cm bubble (Pic 7).

Lock both ends of the third bubble in one lock twist (Pic 8).

Make the third bubble of the other balloon (Pic 9).

Lock both ends off this bubble in one lock twist and fix it on the other side of the scissors. Congratulations again! We have made the scissors. I regard this sculpture as one balloon sculptures suitable for one balloon line work even we use two balloons to make it - it's really simple and quick to make one. Have fun and happy twisting :)
