Paw Print Design Tutorial

1. Pick 2 different colors. (The example uses black & white). You will need 2 strands of black & 3 strands of white.

2. Align string, fold in half, and tie knot ½ inch from fold forming a loop.

3. Attach your ½ inch loop to MYFBM under the butterfly clip.

4. Separate strings by placing one string per slot. Note: Use the same color in slots 2, 4, 6, 8 & 9 (white) & slots 3, 5 & 7 (black). You will have one extra black strand & one extra white strand. You will need to cut the 2 extra strings close to the knot you tied to secure under your clip. This will align the colors of your bracelet pattern.
