Balloon Flower

By , About.com Guide

Flower Petals:

Step 1: The flower balloon animal is a cute, crowd-pleasing balloon animal/sculpture. Unlike thebasic flower balloon animal, this flower is more attractive with denser petals. This version offers a bit more detail and is slightly more advanced because it employs a tulip twist.
This set of instructions is the first of two parts. In this section, you'll learn how to make the petals. In the second section, you'll learn how to make and add the flower's stem.

Materials:
Two 260 Balloons. You can use any color balloon for the petals and will probably want to use a green balloon for the stem.

Flower

To make the flower balloon animal, you will need to know how to make a fold twist and a tulip twist.

Step 2: Inflate the balloon to about two inches from the end.

Stem:

Step 1: Inflate the balloon to about an inch from the end.

Stem 1

Step 2: Make one tulip twist that's about an inch long.

Stem 2

Step 3: Make a fold twist about four inches below the tip of the balloon. The fold twist creates the first of two "leaves." For the stem, you're essentially creating a balloon sword.

Stem 3

Step 4: Make a second fold twist at the same location as the first "leaf."

Stem 4

Step 5: While holding the first segment (tulip twist), insert the twist of the green balloon into the center axis of petals. You're attaching the stem to the flower. Straighten out the petals to finish your balloon flower.
