Feed your cord through both sides of the buckle like shown here. The buckle has a slight arch to fit your wrist comfortably so make sure they are facing the correct way.

Pull a few inches of cord through and clamp it using your binder clip.

Using your tailors tape or some measuring tool measure the length of your bracelet so it's 1 inch longer than what your wrist measured out to. For example. This picture shows the bracelet measuring 6.5", which means the wrist it will be going on measured out to be 5.5".

Follow closely and create your first braid. By bringing black over across first we establish black being the middle, more prominent color.

Follow closely as this step is almost identical to Step 4 except the black cord is now coming from left to right.

Now you will go back to Step 4 and alternate 4 and 5 until you finish braiding.

Don't forget to braid over the loose cords on the other end.

Once you've woven your cord all the way down to the other buckle, you're going to feed them through the second slit in the buckle so they come out on the underneath side of the bracelet.

Attach your Paracord Fid Needle and thread your first cord under and through 3-4 braids of the already braided portion of your bracelet, and then pull tightly.
Repeat with the other loose cord.

Cut the lose ends and melt them down nicely. If you're good you can cut and melt them close enough to hide them under and inside the braids.
