1/2" is a pretty small bubble, but you may be able to make it work.

First, DON'T stretch the balloon before you blow up the 1/2" bubble. Assuming your'e tying it off, tie it off. <grin>

Next, snap the very tip (opposite end from the nozzle) of the balloon a couple of times...basically stretching ONLY the area where you want the bubble to appear.

Because that tip is now the softest spot -- it's the only part that's been stretched -- you should be able to squeeze the bubble and have it appear there.

Since the only part besides that tip that is stretched out is the opposite end (up by the nozzle where the bubble used to be), squeezing the "moved" bubble should pop it back to it's original position.

Again, I've not done this with such a small bubble. If the size is crucial (i.e. it MUST be a bubble that size), it would likely work better with 130's as opposed to the standard 260.

Good luck!
