Twist these together, so that all three 260's are joined. Just as you would braid hair, rope, or anything, braid the three 260's . When you reach the end, join this end as you did the other. Now do the same with three more 260's. At this point you should have two braids. Bend the ends in on one end only of each braid, so as to make them look like candy canes. Join the bent ends together by twisting the three bubbles of one in with the three bubbles of the other. Do the same with the unbent ends. You should now be holding a 6 balloon braided heart. On the inside of the heart, place the business cards between each of the folds, on each of the sides, so as to display them. Anchor the heart to a chair, table, railing, or some handy, stationary item with scraps of balloon &/or plastic balloon straws. I'm telling y'all, this really works!!! John.
