How-to Steps:

Using the largest tip, air-fill the Orbz™ balloon using the Mini Cool Aire® Dual Pro™ Inflator on high speed.

Slip the tail of the balloon through the large hole in the balloon cup and wrap clockwise to the first hook, for short tails, or the second hook, for longer tails. Insert the remaining end of the tail into the vertical slit. Insert the balloon stick into the bottom notch of cup (a dot of glue can go on the stick before insertion for added security).

Prep glue pillows in the glue skillet, on low, until glue is melted to a thick consistency.

Cut the cello sheets down to 15 eight-inch to 10-inch sheets. For each cello sheet, gather the square in the center and dip into the glue pan. Glue the cello pieces on the outside of the balloon cup until the exterior space of the cup is covered.

Cut a 24” length of each ribbon. Place both pieces together against underside of cup, around the stick and cup, and tie a knot, creating four ribbon tails.
