Can you explain how to use the Bobo balloons to stuff gifts in and also where do I purchase from.
There are several methods how to stuff Bobo balloons, depending mostly on what you want to put inside the balloons.
1. Stuffing Bobo balloons with confetti or small items, like a single rose
For filling confetti into a balloon, you can simply use a household funnel. At Alibaba.com I've also seen a kind of pipe that you fill with confetti, then attach it to an electrical inflator and blow the confetti into the balloon.
For putting something like a single rose into the Bobo balloon, you'd use a piece of tubing, which you could even make out of rolled up cardboard, as shown in this short video.
2. Stuffing Bobo balloons with larger items, like a teddy bear or a flower bouquet
For this method you'd cut the balloon open, along the seam opposite the balloon neck, put your gift inside the balloon and reseal it with a heat sealer.
How do you seal bobo balloons? Cut them open in a straight line. That makes it much easier to seal the opening tightly than if you'd cut them in a curved line. Also try to make the cut as small as possible, just big enough to get your gift item inside.
Here's an excellent tutorial video by Chris Horne from Amscan International. He uses a Crystal Clearz balloon which is made from a similar material as the Bobo balloons.
