íVIVA MEXICO! 
MadeWithBalloons™

Today is “Cinco de Mayo”, the 5th of May, the time that Mexico celebrates a great military victory. Many flags of Mexico are waving today. But, you do not have to put them away at the end of the day.

You may use this design any time that you want to focus attention upon Mexico, Mexican food, Mexican people and Mexican traditions. 

Just expand the compact and light weight plastic frame (RMS™ Banner) and load it with balloons in three blocks of color; green, white and red. Then, overlay a print of the emblem in the center. 

When you load your balloons, you have four original and effective ways to get the job done. Choose the method that serves your needs best.

The Rouse patented, “SIMPLE” way of filling out your design is to tie round balloons in pairs and then roll them into adjacent openings in the Rouse frame.

This cuts the number of balloons needed in half and greatly simplifies the planning and installation tasks compared to traditional nested garland (precision wall) techniques for building balloon graphics like the flag of Mexico.

You tie only once to seal two balloons. You reach into your supply of prepared balloons only once for two balloons. When you load one balloon, the next balloon is right there and ready to load as well. Your display  requires half the number of balloons of more traditional nested garland techniques, yet you may set it up for viewing from both sides if you like.

The Rouse patented, “EASY” way of filling out your design is to tie the neck of two, inflated, double-ended balloons together. Then tie the opposite ends together. Then push one of the pair through an appropriate opening in a balloon grid. Repeat this process until you have filled out your design.

This technique is so easy that we have had children as young as 8 years and a spunky neighbor of 94 produce great results with it.

In our case the balloon grid would be a Rouse Matrix™ Banner. The balloons would be pairs of green, pairs of white and pairs of red balloons.

The Rouse patented, “STRONG” way of filling out your design is to tie round balloons neck to neck in pairs. Then, insert one balloon of the pair into the first balloon frame. Repeat until you whole design is filled out. Then, overlay a second and matching balloon frame. Pull each of the second balloons up and into matching openings of the second balloon frame on top.

This method is popular, because it is “forgiving” of small mistakes in centering the balloons and because it makes a display about 20 times as strong (stiff) as a comparable single layer version. It is plenty strong and light enough to suspend from above and still hold its shape. 

It also gives more volume to the display and provides a space between layers of balloons that is perfect for hiding reinforcing rods or poles if you prefer to stand it on the floor.

The Rouse patented, “FAST” way of filling out your design is to tie strings of double-ended balloons together. Load the balloons of each string into a row of adjacent openings in the balloon frame.

With a little practice, you will likely double or quadruple your loading speed. With even more practice you might approach our current world record of 52 balloons in 45 seconds. Yes, 45 seconds. That is a rate of over 4,000 balloons loaded per hour!
