You do not have to add these extra bubbles now, the flower would sit OK like this.

I do make it with these extra bubbles though.
Twist two half finger bubbles and secure the balloon around the pinch twists.

I then take the balloon over the centre of these two bubbles to form two more very small pinch twists.

Hopefully your flower is looking a little like this?

Attach the flower to the stem.

It might not stand up right as in the first picture, it's top heavy.
Just wrap the lower stem around the bracelet section a couple of times till it sits
upright as in the second picture.

To make version two of the flower, make the eight petal base. Deflate the rest of the balloon,
and leave the excess, you need this to tie the lower section of the stem onto the base.

Inflate the centre of the 160 green, before you inflate this stretch the centre section to weaken it a little.
Hold your hand over the first section of the 160 and the centre should inflate, there is a little knack with this
so please try it a few times.

Tie a knot at both ends and make a 1 finger bubble at each end like I explained previously.

You should have approx. a 9 finger length of inflated 160, twist a 3 finger fold twist
in the centre of the balloon and then double the stem back from both sides to make the
other two 3 finger fold twists.

Attach the base to the flower stem by wrapping the excess of the pink over the stem base a few times.
Add the flowers as made and explained previously.
You may need to adjust the length of the stem so the flower sits up and is not too top heavy.

To attach to wrist, puff inflate a 160 green, or a 260.
Tie together, cut off excess and wrap around the base of the base and stem.

Looks good Stuart, not sure what others I will be showing from the DVD yet.

Might do the bird but It started off as a car.
