Step 1: Things You Will Need

Picture of Things You Will Need

- You will need 1 foot of paracord
- a lighter
- something to cut an flatten melted cord

Step 2: Shaping the Paper Clip

Take the paper clip and pull the middle part outward to form this shape.

Step 3: Weaving

You send the end through the taller end and do just the normal weave up and down and around and back. Then countinue down to the V in the paper clip.

Step 4: Finishing

Once at the end of the V come down under the V and up then around the other side. Now you are ready to melt. When ready to melt you melt the ends good then put them down on the same side and flatten it on some other cord. Now you are done.

Hey guys this is a great project. But everyone remember that this pick will ruin strings and your guitar body.

That's the best looking paracord pick that I've seen. Does the paperclip damage your strings at all?
