Pull out about two inches of the white inner core and then cut it off. Then widen it with the nail cleaner part of the tweezers.Stick other color into the hollowed part of the paracord. When they are in each other burn and melt them together.

Step 4: Braiding Your First Tie

Lay the paracord that you melted together under the other paracord that you tied earlier . When you start braiding look at the pictures below/above and repeat the 2nd picture to the last over and over until you reach your desired length (Note: Every once and a while scoot cord up because you want to get as much cord as you can on a bracelet like shown on the next step

A good thing about this you have two ways to wear it. Thank you for viewing. I hope this helps .
Thank You PARABUILDER!
Your explanations and pictures were very good. I have watched enough Instuctables videos today that my eyes are going in opposite circles. So many mean well, but do not have that "teacher's heart" that it takes to know how to present the steps of a project in a manner that makes sense!
Thanks again.
