Thanks for an easy to follow tutorial!

Very clear instructions! Thank you.

I am pleased with the two I made. Not sure about the ends, which seem like they will eventually unravel, but as someone commented already, they should hold together for a while. This was a great first project, and increased my confidence to try another.

it depends how rough you are with them if they come apart remelt them mine lasted aww year
I just finished making this for my work keys. I'm wondering how well the cut off and melted ends hold in place. Any real life experience on how long I can expect them to hold? Thanks for the great instructable!

I agree the written instructions are the best I've ever seen on this site. Using an orange cord rather than two colours is inspired, it's so easy, I'll be making a fortune doing this soon.
Thanks for giving such clear directions.
