Step 1: You Will Need

Card/Cardboard

Pencil

Scissors

7 strings/threads (your choice of colour)

Ruler(Optional)

Step 2: Octagon

Draw a fairly accurate octagon on the card (8 sided shape). And cut it out, then put a small slit in each side and a hole in the middle.

Step 3: Tie a Knot

Tie a knot in all the strings so they are attached.

Step 4: Setting Up

Push the knot through the hole and push each thread through each slit.

Step 5: The Longest Step ;)

Hold the card so the empty slit is at the bottom then count three slits anticlockwise and pull that thread out of it's slit and into the empty one, then repeat this stage. Remember to check the lose threads are not tangled. And keep it tight.

Step 6: Done

Pull threads off the slits when it is the right size and pull through, cut off, and tie the knot!!!
<p>So you just move the string anticlockwise all the time?</p>
I'm making one right now and it looks awesome! I remember I used to make these with that flat plastic string.
