Put the rubber band on one stick, then pull it out and twist it, and put it on the other stick. It should end up looking like an infinity sign, or a figure 8.

Step 3:

Now, put on your second color. Then your first. Then take the bottom band and bring it over the top of the stick one side at a time. Add another band of the second color, and repeat. Do this until the bracelet is long enough to go around your wrist.

Step 4: Finish It Off

When the bracelet is the size of your wrist, attatch your clip to the bottom (where you started) then slip the top off the sticks and slide out the two in the middle. Then attatch the other side of you clip to the end. And voilá!
