If you wanted to add the branch and leaves inflate a 160 mocha approx. half way.

make three 1 finger pinch twists at various points along the 160,
I also have one twisted section so the double leaf will fit.
At the end make two 1 finger pinch twists, deflate the rest of the balloon
at the tip so you can wrap the un-inflated 160 back up the inflated 160 to give
a little distortion and roughness to the branch.

With the lime 160 make three 2 finger fold twists and a figure of eight.

Twist the leaves into the branch and cut off the excess balloon.

Hopefully your koala plus will look a little like the one here.
Good luck and if you do make it then please post your effort here, thanks.

I am very happy to have won this month's competition and am all set up with a fantastic new koala balloon face - I know this is going to be useful
courtesy of Graham Lee.
As for my prize I am spoiled for choice but I think I will just start at the top of the list and go for Simply Shonna's exotic birds and sea creatures especially as most of my twisted birds and fish can be quite teeny tiny so this will get me blasted out and filling some space with some nice rounds etc.
Thank you Graham for organising the competition, no rush to post out to me as I do hope to pop round before too long, pardon the pun, or of course to catch up on the road.
As I am not here posing with my prize I have had to pick out a random image from my files but something which does express my happiness at being this month's winner, as you can see this picture was taken a long time ago before the days of colour film
