And I forgot to say 2 things if you are trying the paper water balloons you need to use thiker paper. And I am not 100 % sure but i think you need to change the title i says: How To Make Origami a Balloon but i think the "a " before Balloon isint need'd it going to look Like this : "How To Make Origami Balloon"
