I was playing with my balloon stuffing tool and stuffed the first picture with red tulle and the second with cupcake sprinkles.  The cupcake sprinkles (very tiny red, pink, and white sugared balls).  The second makes a neat sound and the static makes it stick to the inside of a clear heart.

ummmmm, damn!   wish I had thought of that!!!  Note to self....Self...Order some 5 inch clear rounds and 6 inch clear hearts.  Very very cool!

By the way allison.  Have you ever thought of putting a heart in a clear round?  Might have to use an 11 inch round, but could be way cool!!!

Fondly...Papa!

Thank you everyone for your kind words! Smiley
Papa - this is kind of expensive - but I like to take wild berry, red, and purple 6 inch hearts and load them into 5 inch clear flower around and stars around rounds.  They look pretty on magic wands and top of princess crowns.  Like I said they are kind of expensive but the little girls love them and they are so simple to make.

mark it's done the same way as double stuffing - you insert the uninflated heart into the round - put a little air into the round  - the inflate the heart - tie both off together - no special tool required other than your pump

To stuff a heart into a round I do just like Jillybilly said. No special tool is required.  Some people even use the ends of their glasses.
I use the wooden end of a paint brush and stuff the heart into the round.

When making the confetti wands (putting cupcake sprinkles into clear heart or rounds) you can take a tiny funnel if you want to be neat or just carefully pour the sprinkles into the clears.  I do this over the kitchen sink with a glass measuring cup inside so that I can save what I spill.  After filling a bunch of them up I take scissors and cut the nozzles off some old large rounds to work as rubber bands or you can use actual rubber bands to group about 5 or so together at a time.  This also keeps the sprinkles loaded into the balloons.  I then put these into a baggie that I carry to keep the sprinkles from making a mess.

To stuff the tulle, bouncy balls, or other stuff in balloons - meet my little friend!   Grin
The Elastrator, veterinary tool, works wonders for stuffing things into balloons.  These can be purchased new off of ebay for around 10 donuts and this includes shipping.

JillyBilly: Yes, for stuffing balloons in balloons, that works. I used an elastrator to stuff large candy into balloons for my daughter's kindergarten class.

I love the idea of cake sprinkes - I've used seed beads in the past for making things rattle - if I switch to cake sprinkles I don't have to worry about a kid swallowing them if the balloon pops!  For loading them I use the funnel that comes with the water balloons that I buy - it's small enough I can keep it in my balloon bag and I get a new one every time I get water balloons - I think I've got 4 of then now Smiley
