Then make another 8 finger fold twist for his other ear and attach to the top pinch twist.

Make a 4 finger bubble for the side of the face and twist this into the fold twists for the cheeks.

Make another 4 finger bubble for the other side of the face and twist around
the pinch twist and discard the rest of the 160 balloon.

Make a 2 finger bubble in the rose 260 and tie loosely,
if too tight it will look like a pinch twist and you want the nose to look roundish.

Attach to the nose section.

Add some artwork.

To add a little to the design you can make the carrot.

Inflate the end of the 160 orange with approx. an 8 finger bubble and approx.
2/3 fingers un-inflated depending if you want the carrot to have a rounded end or spikey.

Cut the green 160 in half and put a puff of air into the 160 and tie a knot at all four ends for symmetry.

Tie the orange 160 around the centre of the two halves of the green 160 balloon.

You then need to make a tulip/apple twist.

This has to be tied into the orange balloon other wise the green 160 will come flying
out of the carrot body. Use the excess of the orange 160 and then cut off the excess.

The knot of the balloon is in the lower section of the carrot.

If you then pull on the green 160's it will then sit nicer and give the balloon the carrot look.

Draw on a little artwork and there is your finished bunny rabbit with carrot.

Hope it worked out OK for you?

You could make the rabbit without the 160 balloon for the side of the rabbit's head.
And with the 160 green balloon not cut into two.

I think the cheeks on this one are a 4 finger fold twist and
not a 3 finger fold twist as per the instructions above.

I also made the feet smaller as the body was three bubbles and not just one.


There are so many variations to a theme,
please try some out and see what is more pleasing to your eye.

Funny you said that as I thought that yesterday when someone mentioned they were looking for a thumper design.
There is a similarity.
