Matt Falloon & his Trained Balloons!
Inflate two 6” Spring Lilac GEO Blossoms, leaving the chamber by the nozzle uninflated.
Twist both Blossoms in half with the nozzle in the center.
Combine the two shapes to form a quad of Geos. Arrange so the smaller chambers are all on one side.
Underinflate a third Spring Lilac Geo Blossom®, keeping the top chamber uninflated.
Twist the third Geo® in half with the nozzle in the center.
Inflate a Spring Lilac Quick Link to 4”. Push the air into the tail of the Quick Link and twist so there is a change in the bubble size, creating the head and body of the elephant.
Twist the structure from Step 5 into the third Geo to give the elephant its ears. Arrange so the big lobes are on top.
Find the nozzle of the Geo used for the ears and lock into the cluster of Geos to connect the body to the legs. Shape the trunk of the elephant and add artwork.
