I wasn't sure what the first balloon design I should post should be... There are so many to choose from.
The basic balloon dog seemed like a good choice, but I didn't want to start this off with such a simple design.
I chose for my first post to be the balloon character that I make. I admit that it is not entirely my design, I've drawn some aspects from other twister and made it my own.
I like these little figures because they are very easy to pose in different ways, they can be made to hold onto items or to hold up flyers or business cards for display.
Here is one I made for a local rotary group to help draw attention to the fact that they were selling raffle tickets.
