Inflate a White 350Q leaving 4” uninflated and make two 2” pinch twists. Take a scrap of Pink 260Q and make a soft pinch twist for the nose, tie, and remove remainder. Make two 1” bubbles for the teeth.
Make two 6” loop twists for the cheeks.
Make two 2” pinch twists. Then make two separate 1”pinch twists with a scrap of Black 260Q for the eyes. (Tip: Making the pinch twists separately gives you more space between the bubbles.) Inflate a Pink 260Q leaving a 3”tail. Attach above the nose. Make a 4 ½” bubble, a pinch twist, followed by a 4 ½” bubble. Wrap it between the cheeks.
Thread the Pink 260Q through one cheek. Make a 4 ½” bubble and thread it back through the other cheek. Twist it back through the center, create a pinch twist at the base and bring to the top pinch twist. Bring remainder back down into the base and tie.
Insert eyes into the 260Q loops above the nose.
Inflate a 6” Pink Quick Link to 5” and attach under teeth.
Inflate a Pink 260Q leaving 4” uninflated. Tie the ends together and find center, twist and add to top pinch twist. Shape ears. (Note: You can combine steps 6 & 7.)
Inflate a Pink 350Q leaving 4” uninflated for the bunny’s foot. Make a pinch twist, a 4 ½” bubble, another pinch twist, a 1”spacer bubble, pinch twist, and then a 4 ½”bubble. Repeat to make second foot.
Using a 5” White, inflate to 3” and make a pinch twist. Attach to legs and attach remainder to the body.
Inflate a Pink 260Q leaving a 4” tail. Make two small pinch twists, and three 3”bubbles, rolling one between the other two bubbles. Repeat with another set of 3” bubbles. Make two small pinch twists, and twist two 6 ½” bubbles. Attach at the base of the neck, and wrap the tip of the last bubble into the pinch twist of the hands.
Take a Rose 160Q and inflate a 5” bubble, leaving about 3” uninflated. Find the center of bubble, twist, and tie ends together.
Insert eyebrows into head, with the strap behind the pinch twist in the eyes. Puff inflate a Spring Lilac 260Q and insert below eyes. Wrap around eyes and hide the knot.
