    Using the Mini Cool Aire® "Dual ProTM" Inflator, inflate 2 of the  11” inch 'Birthday Boy' latex to 9 “, and make a duplet
    Step 2
    Repeat step 1, twist both duplets to make a cluster

    Using the Mini Cool Aire® "Dual ProTM" Inflator, inflate 2 of the 5" white to 4", and make a duplet
    Step 4
    Repeat step 3, twist both duplets to make a cluster. Tie the two clusters together, using a neck from each cluster
    Step 5
    Stretch the neck of an 11” Blue balloon, and push in a 60 - gram Lite Heavy Weight, (so getting the weight the same colour as your cluster). Tie the weight into the bottom cluster of Birthday Boy balloons using the neck of one of the balloons from the cluster and the neck of the balloon covering the weight.
    Step 6
    Take the Birthday Boy Stars 18” foil and make a ‘Raisin Twist’ in each of the corners.

    Inflate the foil gently, with air. Wrap the neck of the foil with a 160, and tie into the top white cluster of the base. 
    Step 8

    Step 10
    Repeat Step 9, then twist both duplets into a cluster
    Step 11
    Wrap the cluster around the join of the Smiley Face foil and the Birthday Boy foil, making a collar.
    Step 12
    Inflate a 5” white to 3”, and tie into one of the remaining raisin twists.
    Step 13
    Inflate a 160 white balloon, and make a 5 bubble string of pearls.

    Step 15
    Repeat steps 12 to 14 on the other side.
    Step 16
