FLOWER CUP 4

KIT LIST : 5" CLEAR ROUND / 160Q RED / 160Q LIME GREEN / 160Q DIAMOND CLEAR / PLASTIC CUP

This is my favourite flower balloon cup so far. The rose is really nice but a little tricky to make. Not a speedy design if you are making a lot of cups at once.

FLOWER CUP #5

KIT LIST : 5" CLEAR ROUND / 160Q WILD BERRY / 160Q YELLOW / 160Q LIME GREEN / 160Q CLEAR / PLASTIC CUP

This is a really interesting design that I like very much. This design reminds me a little of a thai orchid by the way all the flowers hang together. The instructions are a little tricky to follow part way through so you may need to experiment a little.

FLOWER CUP #6

KIT LIST : 5" CLEAR ROUND / 260Q YELLOW / 160Q WILD BERRY / 160Q LIME GREEN / 160Q DIAMOND CLEAR / PLASTIC CUP

Another flower variation but this one is large and a little tricky to make as all the petals need to squeeze inside the centre 6-bubble. I managed to pop a few in the process so it is important to keep the bubbles soft. Personally I think this flower is a little too big for even the larger sized cup but it looks OK.

PRINCESS CUP

KIT LIST : 5" ROSE ROUND / 5" CLEAR ROUND / 321Q BLUSH / 260Q GOLDENROD / 260Q WHITE / 160Q GOLDENROD / 160Q CLEAR / PLASTIC CUP

This princess design is excellent and Beating includes photos of other popular princess variations. I particularly like the hair which I haven't seen before and intend to use this hair for quick and easy princess models. My artwork is pretty awful and needs some work. I didn't use a 321Q blush for the face as I have some 350Q blush which worked equally fine. The princess sits well on top of the larger cup and I know the girls will love it.

Just change the colours for other princesses.

PINK FISH

KIT LIST : 17" PINK HEART / 6" PINK HEART / 350Q PINK / 260Q BLACK / 260Q PINK / 160Q ROSE

Some of you may have noticed I swapped the 17" pink heart for a white one but I still think it looks OK. I love this fish. A really simple design. This one uses two raisins as attachment points within the 17" heart. I am sure there are many different fishes that can be made with this core design. The only downside is I now need to start stocking large hearts as well as everything else!

SUMMARY

This is without doubt the BEST instructional book I have ever seen. There are literally hundreds of photos, the english explanations are very clear and concise and the range of marketable balloon models extraordinary. The balloon cup principle is original and these are brilliant for giveaways and can even be sold as party extras or perhaps wedding favours. Even if you don't wish to purchase any smoothie cups, each of the models can be used as standalone items. A worthy addition to my collection and I cannot wait until Book 2 in 2013.

I would recommend having a look at Beatings facebook page as a wonderful source of inspiration.

EXTRAS

Whilst these designs are not included in the book, I did spot them on Beatings facebook page and using the methods learned from this book I was able to make them....

I haven't actually sold any because I haven'y tried. I know Kevin (Phoenix) has sold plenty in some of his local stores. You will really like this book!
