how large of an object can i put in a 36" balloon?

by james

I'm wanting to put a book 7" wide x 9" high x 1" deep inside a balloon. Is this possible with a 36" balloon? How wide is the mouth opening?


If not possible with this size, what size balloon, or what kind of balloon would I need to get to make this possible?

ANSWER:

Hi James,

I've never seen a 36inch balloon stuffed with an object. They are normally filled with lots of 5inch balloons.

The balloon stuffing machines like the Keepsake Stuffer or the Classy Wrap work with 18inch balloons.

Theoretically the 7inch wide book should fit into the 36" balloon. But I honestly don't know if the mouth stretches open wide enough.

Best is if you give it a try. At Ebay you'll get good quality 36" balloons for a couple of bucks.

Good luck and would love to hear if it worked out!
