For ease in
tying a balloon, hold 1 inch of the balloon at the neck while you inflate
it, so theres enough room to tie it. Inflate a 260Q balloon by mouth,
or with a Qualatex Balloon Pump. To tie the balloon, hold the neck between
your left thumb and middle finger, with the nozzle of the balloon pointing
up. With your right thumb and index finger, stretch the neck, and wrap
it around the tips of your left index and middle fingers in a clockwise
direction. Spread your left fingers, and tuck the nozzle down and through
the loop with your right hand. Slide your left fingers out of the loop
while holding the nozzle with your right hand.
Inflate a 260Q, leaving about 6 inches uninflated, and tie it. Hold the
balloon in your left hand with the uninflated end pointing right. Make
three 1-inch bubbles for the Dogs head and ears. To make a 1-inch
bubble, pinch the balloon and twist it several times. An inch further,
twist again, making sure to twist in the same direction.
2. To make
ears, twist the last two 1-inch bubbles together at the base. This will
keep the bubbles from untwisting.
3. Make a 1-inch
bubble for the neck followed by two 2-inch bubbles. Twist the 2-inch bubbles
together at the base to make front legs.
4. For the
Dogs body, make a 5-inch bubble followed by two 2-inch bubbles.
Twist the 2-inch bubbles together at the base to make back legs. Leave
a small bubble of air at the base of the tail to hold the back legs in
5. Roll the
tail between the back legs to prevent them from untwisting and complete
