This is what will be in the complimentary packs,
please note that as we are sending out chromes there are no spares.
You can use ordinary balloons to try at the design at first and then
move over to the chrome once you are confident with the design.

Inflate the silver chrome leaving approx. 5 fingers un-inflated.

Measure the balloon around the persons head and twist the knot into the twist.
Make sure the balloon around the head is a softish bubble as
you will be putting two more twists into this later.
Make a 1.5 finger pinch twist.

Then a 4 finger bubble and two more 1.5 finger pinch twists.

Make an 8 finger bubble (4 finger fold twist) for the top of the crown.
Deflate the rest of the balloon.

Put a twist into the head band at 4 fingers either side of the central section.

Inflate the gold chrome approx. half way.
You can make two crowns from the gold balloon.

Twist a 1.5 finger bubble and twist into the headband section,
twist four 2 finger bubbles and then twist this into
the double pinch twist of the crown.

Twist four more 2 finger bubbles and put the final twist into the
headband section on the other side.


Make a 1.5 finger bubble and pinch twist then discard the rest of the gold balloon.
You can use the rest of this balloon to make another crown.

Make the first 1.5 finger bubble on the chrome gold balloon into a pinch twist.

Make a 7/8 finger bubble in the spring green and split into two.
Insert into the chrome silver eight finger fold twist and secure around the two pinch twists.

If you can slightly bend the two 4 finger bubbles on the headband it will sit nicer on the head.

Hope you can use the design.
