Ballooning- Fold Twist

By , About.com Guide

Like the basic twist and lock twist, the fold twist is a fundamental twist in making balloon animals. It is also the foundational twist to make a sword.

Begin with a basic twist. You'll be turning the remaining portion of the balloon and holding it against the first basic twist. The fold twist is a variation on a lock twist with the exception that you don't separate the "fold" into two parts.

Grab the "folded: part of the balloon and twist it. The arrow in the picture indicates the segment of the balloon that's twisted (you are free to turn the "folded" segment in either direction). The dotted line indicates the portion of the balloon that will be pinched and twisted in the process.

You now have a simple fold twist.
