    Step 1
    Using the
    Mini Cool Aire Dual Pro Inflator, inflate the  It's a Boy mini shape
    Step 2
    Hold the neck of the balloon with your finger and thumb, ensuring that no air leaks from the foil. Place in the
    Heat Sealer making sure the neck of the balloon is flat. Heat seal the balloon. Please note: For best results, the Heat Sealer's setting should be between 3 and 4
    Step 3

    Wrap the foil onto the cup and attach to the stick
    Step 4

    Stick a Mini Base to the middle of the base, using the Multitape
    Step 5
    Place the stick into the base
    Step 6
    Tie a pale Blue tulle bow under the foil on one side of the stick
    Step 7
    Repeat step 6 on the other side of the stick
    Step 8
    Attach another Mini base to the base
    using Multi tape, to one side of the stick that you have just attached.
    Step 9
    Repeat step 8 with another mini base and place it the other side
    Step 10
    Using a stick push a 5" balloon into the 11" printed balloon
    Step 11
    Inflate the 5" latex balloon to 4.5", inside the 11"and tie off, making sure to pull the 11" around so the print shows well
    Step 12
    Wrap the 5" onto a saddle stick
    Step 13
    Tie a small blue pleated bow to the front of the saddle stick
    Step 14
    Repeat steps10 to 13 with another 5"and 11" balloon
    Take a twist stick and put into the mini base, cut off the stick just above the top of the minibase. You have created a smaller base for the saddle stick to sit in

    Step 16
    Measure the first saddle stick, against the stick holding the foil, cut off the excess saddle stick so the 5"  sits underneath the foil
    Step 17
    Place the saddle stick into the adjusted mini base, on the right.
    Step 18
    Repeat steps15 to 17, this time make the 5" balloon sit lower than the first 5". Then place it it in the mini base on the left side
    Tie the
    tulle bow to the base of the center stick, to the front of the design
    Tie a second tulle bow behind the center stick
