I made this for my husband and decided that it was a good idea to make an instructable for the Boa Braid because it took me some time to find any reference to it let alone how to do it step by step. I hope that I am able to explain it well enough for you to make this braid for what ever use you with to use it for. 

This Gun Sling is about 54" because my husband is a tall man and it fits him a little loosely. He decided on the double color but you can use one color as well. I will do my best to explain both ways.

Step 1: Items Needed

1. 4'6" 2x2 board *I used 2 framing nails on each end to hold my sling clips in place while I worked. Trust me its easier to do this with then without*

2. 100" paracord *Hobby Lobby has this in many colors. For a two color Sling you need about 50" of each color.*

3. Sling Clips *My husband picked these up at Wal-Mart for cheap. I'd advise asking a clerk for help if you are unsure what type to use             for your weapon.*

4. Scissors 

5. Lighter

6. Tape *Not shown in my picture sorry.*
I used this to make a belt. Instead of the bottom clip use a short piece of cord to loop the long pieces. When your done just trim and tuck like the other part.
<p>How much would I need of each color if I'm making a shorter sling...or I guess I should ask how long was the sling you made? Been looking for a tutorial for sling for my rifle and I think I really want to try yours! :)</p>
