    Step 4
    Take the corner of the white heart, without the raisin twist, and twist to form a small bubble, tuck the bubble under your little finger, so leaving your hands free.
    Step 5
    Repeat the twist with the red heart.
    Step 6
    Then take the bubble of the red heart and the bubble of the white heart and twist them around each other, a few times so they lock.
    Step 7

    Take a 160 and slip it over the knot between the two balloons, fill your Bubblloon (with sweets, candies and small toys) and then feed the 160 through the Bubblloon and through the base and secure in place as normal, cut of any excess 160 and tuck away

    Step 14
