When one orders a floral geo assortment from Qualetex it includes many green geo blossoms. I'm not sure if you've had the opportunity yet to hand a child a green flower on a green stem. However, let me assure you that they will look at you like you may have been dropped on your head as a child.

What do you do with these things? I'm looking to share ideas.

Here's what I've done to date. I will make a brown loop hat with a stem and put the green geo on top. Then I hang a frog around the stem so he is hugging it. I call it a frog on a lily-pad even though it looks nothing like a lily-pad. They kids seem to like it well enough.

So how about you? Please help me get rid of these things.

Why does it have to be a green flower on a green stem? If the flower is green, make the stem another color. I don't always make flowers in normal flwer colors. My stems have been blue, or purple, etc.
If you know how to make a clown, the green geo makes a nice ruffled collar for him.

I have done that, making the stem pink, black, brown etc.

The clown is a good idea, and I do know how to make it. Unfortunately, I never have children ask for clowns. In the two years that I've really applied myself towards balloon work not once has a child ever asked me for a clown. A car, train, the sword of a Greek god, even a helicopter, but never ever a clown.

Timely question with Halloween coming up...I use green Geo blossoms to make cute little Frankenstein monster heads which I mount on a hitchhiker body.

There is a a GEO video out that shows how to make "Franky" from a green Geo.

I also use them to make Goofy's hat by inverting a green geo. I buy a lot of green geos....

I also use them for lilly pads for fairy's...


Another thing I do is blow them up half way and make Don Caldwells which face..


I know I use them for other things just can think.. I do go through a lot of them though!

You could also make a spaceship or a witch, for example. There are many other things that you can sculpt with GEO Blossoms, just play with 'em, they'll come to you.
