This is what will be in the complimentary balloon packs that we
send out with all orders for July.

Inflate both Black 260 balloons leaving approx. 3/4 fingers un-inflated.

Make a 1 finger bubble followed by a 8 finger bubble (this is 4 finger fold twist)
and lock the 1 finger bubble through the fold twist.

Do the same with the other balloon so you have a matching pair.

I then made a 16 finger (4 hand) bubble for the base of the hat and locked into the other
balloons 4 finger fold twist. Repeat on the other balloon to complete the hat base.

Then make a 8 finger bubble and a 2 finger pinch twist.

Make an 8 finger bubble and a 2 finger pinch twist on the other balloon to match.

At this point one of the balloons from the pinch twist will be longer, I used the shorter
one and made a 5/6 finger bubble and twisted this into the pinch twist of the other balloon.


Then with same balloon make another 5/6 finger bubble the same back
to the other pinch twist. Deflate the rest of the balloon.

The loop over the top I made a 12 finger bubble and twisted into the other
pinch twist and deflate the rest of that 260 balloon.

The Pirate Skull 5" round I inflated with two strokes of the Qualatex hand pump.
This was then just push fitted into the top of the hat.
