2 balloon decorative truncated tetrahedron

I've been playing around with a few balloon patterns that have odd degree vertices.  Lately, I revisited the doubling up the edges approach.  Here's my latest pattern.  The notation is a bit cryptic but. The pink strokes indicate where a connection has to be made. The big numbers mean  big bubbles and the small numbers mean 1 inch bubbles.

Probably this would make an OK flower vase--it has three points of contact which is good for balance. This is a view from the top. I'll probably make a youtube vid on this.
