    Step 5
    Stretch the neck of an 11” Blue balloon, and push in the three  60 - gram Lite Heavy Weights, (so getting the weight the same colour as your cluster). Tie the weight into the bottom cluster of Blue balloons using the neck of one of the balloons from the cluster and the neck of the balloon covering the weight.

    Step 7
    Wrap the tab on the left hand side of the foil with a piece of 260 and tie into the top of the cluster, placing the '1'at an angle use a piece of tape to tape up the neck of the foil

    Step 8
    Tie a small length of 260 to the tab on top of the 'one'

    Step 9

    Inflate the '8', then place in position against the '1' so you can see where the attaching points will be

    Using Balloon bond and pieces of 260 make  attaching points on the '8', see image for guidance. Make sure to really rub the Balloon Bond so it sticks well

    Repeat step 13 and 14 to make another cluster

    Step 16
    Hide the mechanics of the join, between the numbers, by wrapping a red cluster around the 260 tie point between the '1' and the '8'

    Step 17
    Repeat this for the other join point

    Tie a piece of 260 onto one of the tie points on the '8', so you can attach the head
