Thank you! I'm using this to teach Cubs how to tie it because I have to teach people for my Blue Cord in Scouts!!! (By the way, Cubs are the younger ones and the Blue Cord is the second level in Scouts) Thanks again!!!!

Could you explain the difference between "wraps" and "fraps"?

wraps are to hold the sticks together and the fraps go over the wraps to hold them in place. sorry for the late response.
