For every side there is a smooth top and a rough side. You want to make sure the roughside is sandwiched inside because you want the smooth side next to your skin.Cut cord to 2 ½ feet. Thread each end through holes, situating tab at center.Now grab another tab.Position the second tab behind the first tab (wrong sides together, smooth sides facing out), causingoverlap. Thread each cord through holes formed by overlapping tabs (top cord, top hole – bottomcord, bottom hole).Now grab another tab.Position the third tab on top of the second tab, adjacent to the first, causing overlap with second tab.Thread cord through holes caused by overlapping tabs (top cord, bottom hole – bottom cord, top holecreating X).Repeat pattern from here until bracelet wraps comfortably around your wrist.Position next tab behind previous tab, overlapping.
