Repeat with the other ear.  Twist all four bubbles together and crisscross them to insure they don’t untwist.

P9090022Inflate a yellow 160 leaving about a 6″ tip. Twist the nozzle end into the bubble cluster.

P9090023Bring the 160 down around the base of the Bear Head and twist in at the nozzle.

P9090024Bring the yellow 160 back up and twist around the cluster.

Flower StemI have inflated a 260 leaving about a 2″ tip. Make 3 pinch twists on the nozzle end.

Flower PedelSqueeze all of the air to the tip of the 260 and make a small bubble. Form a loop about 12 inches from the base of the bud.

Flower StemI have made 2 pinch twists on the base for stability.

Balloon FlowerThe loop makes a very long leaf like the kind you get on tulips. Glue dots help to keep the leaf attached to the stem. Squeeze the end of the loop so its not as round.
