Step by Step Instructions:

    Step 1
    Inflate a 260 Lime Green to about 2", using the Mini Cool Aire "Dual Pro TM" Inflator, (remember to hold the 260 about halfway up and stretch it slightly so as to encourage the balloon to inflate straight) and tie a knot
    Step 2
    Take the inflated 260 and wrap around the full length of the maxi stick II; for more instructions on wrapping the maxi stick see Wrapping with a 260
    Step 3
    Using a Multi Tape , attach the Maxi Base ll to the side of the upside down dish
    Step 4
    Using the Mini Cool Aire "Dual Pro TM" Inflator, Inflate two 6" Magenta heart balloons to 5.5" and tie into a duplet
    Step 5
    Repeat step 4
    Step 6
    Inflate a single heart and tie into one of the duplets, so creating a cluster of three
    Step 7
    Take duplet and the three cluster and twist them together to form a five balloon cluster
    Step 8
    Using the Mini Cool Aire "Dual Pro TM" Inflator, Inflate two 5" Yellow Polka dot balloons to 2.5" and tie into a duplet
    Step 9
    Repeat step 8
    Step 10
    Inflate a single polka dot and tie into one of the duplets, so creating a cluster of three
    Step 11
    Take duplet and the three cluster and twist them together to form a five balloon cluster
    Step 12
    Repeat steps 8 to 11 to make another cluster
    Step 13
    Tie one of the clusters into the top of the heart cluster using a neck for each cluster
    Step 14
    Repeat with the other cluster on the other side of the heart cluster
    Step 15
    Inflate a Wildberry Polka dot to 1.5" and tie into the middle of the yellow polka dot cluster
    Step 16
    Repeat Step 15 and tie into the centre of the Yellow polka dot cluster on the other side, so creating a flower head
    Step 17
    To attach the flower to the top of the wrapped stick simply open up two heart balloons in the flower and slide it onto the top of the stick. There is no need for glue or tape to hold it, the balloons being latex will grip the wrapped 260's
    Step 18
    Take an uninflated Lime Green D2 and bend it about 3" from the bead end, insert into an uninflated Lime Green 5", making sure not to twist the D2
    Step 19
    Holding both ends of the D2, inflate the 5" to about 3", then inflate the D2, so the looped balloon is about 3" in length, then tie the two end together
    Step 20
    Release the air from the 5", so it takes up the shape of the D2, so creating a leaf
    Step 21
    Repeat Steps 18 to 20 to create another leaf
    Step 22
    Inflate two 5"Lime Green Balloons to1.5",and make a duplet
    Step 23
    Repeat Step 22, to make a second duplet
    Step 24
    Inflate a single Lime Green and tie into one of the duplets, so creating a cluster of three
    Step 25
    Take  the duplet and the three cluster and twist them together to form a five balloon cluster
    Step 26
    Take one of the leaves and wrap it with a puffed 260 to attach to the maxi stickll, about half way up
    Step 27
    Place the stick into the Maxi Base
    Step 28
    Wrap the Lime Green cluster around the base of the Maxi Stick ll, so hiding the mechanics of the Maxi Base
    Step 29
    Inflate a 5" Lime green to 1" and tie into the middle of the cluster
    Step 30
    Take the second leaf, and wrap it into the Lime Green cluster to one side
    Step 31
    Inflate a Yellow polka dot to 2.5", repeat with another 5" polka dot and tie together to make a duplet
    Step 32
    Take one of the polka dot 5",of the duplet and twist it in the middle to make two bubbles
    Step 33
    Take a neck of one or the balloons and wrap it a few times around the twist, hold this in place
    Step 34
    Twist the other balloon in the duplet in the middle, to create two bubbles
    Step 35
    Then twist both 5" around each other on the twist, to make a tight cluster, inflate a Wildberry 5" polka dot to about 1" and tie into the middle of the cluster
    Step 36
    Tie into the Lime Green cluster, just to the side of the small 5" in the middle, so it looks like a small flower
    Step 37
    Take a small length of pink tulle and tuck it around the cluster and under the leaf
