This is my first Instructable so please bear with me as I try to take you through the steps of creating this below

Step 1: Step One the Tools You Will Need

These are the tools you will need
Heat source for melting paracord (i Use a candle as I can use the wax around the outside to help shape the melted bit of paracord)
(not shown) you can use some paracord needles (note sure of the name) for the last part tucking the cord back into the Knot

lastly an old Lanyard, I say old as we are going to use all the bits that are still attached to it but in this case just replace the white lanyard. it is important to keep all the fastenings especially the black bit this is the bit that if your lanyard get caught in a lift door then it snaps off without strangling you if you don't keep this bit in then there is a chance that you could strangle yourself, you have been warned.
Awesome! Good idea about recycling the 'hardware' from an old lanyard. I've made a few but used plastic buckles I tested to be sure they would break away instead of strangle me. I'm curious about the green card holder on your lanyard. Did that come with the old lanyard or do you know a source for those? Thanks!
<p>sorry missed this comment yeah all the hardware was from the original lanyard (including the badge holder) although i am sure these could be 3D printed easily</p>
we were lucky that it came with the lanyard I recycled, sorry i guess you could look on ebay.
we have exactly the same paracord!!!
