I'm sorry if this was hard to follow. As you can imagine it is quite tricky to explain I just thought I had to share it with you guys. If you couldn't make this, put it in the comments and I'll try my best to explain the part you got stuck on. Thank you :) my next instructables will probably be another origami or a rainbow loom creation as I have quite a few that I'd like to share. Sorry again
