To prep the tarp all you need to do is fold the tarp in half and tie the open ends together with a square knot.(use the four inch pieces for joining the 2 sides.)  Then tie a two half hitch at both of the corners.(Using the 3 foot pieces.)

Step 3: Assembly

take the corners and roll the sides together.  Remember those 3 foot strands of paracord hanging from the corners, right? Use those to tie the ends together.  Do the same on the other side and on both sides  leave 3 inches of paracord so you ca attach a carabiner.   Tie the carabiner on.
