The complimentary bags of balloons in the orders for this month from qualatex balloons will have the balloons to make two princess wands, Anna and Elsa.
Final date to post will be 7th Aug and the winner picked out of the hat will win a balloon modelling DVD.

I will post the full instructions over the next couple of days.

Inflate the 260 and leave approx. 5/6 fingers un-inflated, twist a 3 finger fold twist and wrap the knot of the balloon through the fold twist to secure a couple of times.
Make five fold twists in all and try to make similar size, I gently squeeze the air along a little before I make every fold twist, less change of popping.

On my wand I had approx. 15 fingers left for the wand section. I then inflated the heart with a qualatex green hand pump with 8 strokes of the pump.
It was full so you may want to try 7 strokes to start with.

On the Elsa wand I posted earlier I did not have the bubbles underneath the heart,
the knot was wrapped around the 5 fold twists and then we made the 2 finger bubbles in the 160 wrapping them around as we went along.

on Anna, Inflate the 160 white and leave 7/8 fingers un-inflated, attach the knot around the 5 fold twists and do a 2 finger bubble followed by a 1 finger pinch twist.

I then made six 2 finger bubbles and stretched these under the heart and attachd to the 1 finger pinch twist.
Squeeze the air out of the 160 and wrap around the 5 fold twists, you then make as many bubbles as you can, on the one here I have fifteen 2 finger bubbles.
At the bottom of the chain of bubbles I then had three 2.5 finger bubbles and the 260 wand balloon wrapped around this section.
Wrap the bubbles around the 260 a few times to get the desired look you prefer.

And the finished Frozen wand, you may like to try a 160 in silver instead of the white.

Both Anna and Elsa together so you can see the variations.

Am I allowed to post a picture of another want I made? Also, I wondered if it might be possible for you (Graham) to post a picture of the back of the want with the pearl necklace effect?
Many thanks, pics up soon!
