CONWIN EQUIPMENT:

STEP 1
Make a chain of four 6″ (15cm) LINK-O-LOON® as follows: Air fill a LINK-O-LOON® and tie the neck. Air fill a second LINK-O-LOON® and tie the neck to the tip of the first LINK-O-LOON®, wrapping them around each other twice and then knotting for a snug fit. Continue adding LINK-O-LOON® one at a time. Tie a bouquet weight to the neck of the first LINK-O-LOON® and trim the excess neck matieral from the chain for a smooth, clean appearance.

 

STEP 2

Make two more weighted chains, one with six LINK-O-LOON® and another with eight LINK-O-LOON®.

 

STEP 3

Helium fill a 12″ (30cm) LINK-O-LOON® and tie the neck to the matching color 6″ (15cm) chain. Repeat this step with the next two chains.

STEP 4
Helium fill a matching 18″ (46cm) latex and tie the neck to the tip of the matching helium LINK-O-LOON®. Repeat with the remaining chains.

STEP 5
Place two Clik-ClikTM Adhesive Tabs facing each other with holes aligned at the top of each 18″ (46cm) latex. Tie on a section of 260 and secure helium-filled Pop-Art Butterfly foil to the tabs leaving a little stretch between.

STEP 6
Make twelve 5″ (12cm) Deluxe Black latex clusters and wrap at the base to cover the weight, under the 12″ (30cm) LINK-O-LOON®, under the 18″ (46cm) latex and under the foil butterfly.

STEP 7
Inflate a chain of twenty 6″ (15cm) Fashion Bubble Gum Pink LINK-O-LOON® to 3.5″ (9cm) each. Tie into a circle.
