Ij'm a little bit stumped by this tutorial - the vase I think I can manage and am going to have a go at it tomorrow. The flowers though, I don't understand. I've got the four 160s and tied them together at the knot. I've twisted each on in half and put that around the the pinch twist in the bottom of the vase. But I'm now left with some ends tied together - surely there is no need to tie them together in the first place, or am I missing something here?!

Mujician, I think this video will help. Whilst it is not a vase, the weave is similar and will explain why you don't need pinch twists all the way down. As for tying 160s together and then wrapping, this will prevent them coming undone more easily once finished (single balloons with nozzles wrapped round a pinch twist can come free again in a child's hands)

Like Graham says, practice will help you iron out any difficulties

I thought the idea was to twist the knotted part of the tied balloons around the vase pinch-twist which gives you FOUR FLOWER STEMS & then fully inflate two more 160's and twist them in half before twisting them around the vase pinch-twist.
That will give you another FOUR FLOWERS STEMS and you should have EIGHT FLOWER STEMS. The longer 160 stems are then used to create leaves

I had an order for flowers in a vase - so I looked at the tutorial. It was a great help with tying the stems to the pinch twist at the beginning.

The customer rang me earlier in the day to ask if i could make it bigger and he would pay more. So I enlarged the woven vase, added another couple of flowers and put two double stuffed water weights in the bottom to help stablise it and weigh it down. The customer was very happy!

:D
