Now take 2 rubber bands and place them from the middle of the eyes to form a triangle(look at the pictures!) then take a single and and form a figure 8 by twisting it. Then place the 2 holes of the 8 together to form a doubled O! Then place it below the triangle you placed earlier. Make sure it is also a triangle!

Thanks for the instructions but mine did not work - I clearly got mixed up somewhere! Next time you do a similar tutorial it would be easier if you used different coloured bands at each step, that way it would be much easier to follow the pictures. And if you could add how to finish it off rather than saying "see my others" it would be better. :)

I bought these 2 refills and they seem pretty good. Very sturdy:

They sent me PDF booklet with youtube videos on how to make different patterns. Good quality too.

Hello 105415, you could try doubling the bands. You know like instead of putting a normal band on each on a capband. Good luck!!

I had a little trouble at first, but I tried again. It looks so much better now! XD

I've made 4 of them already. I love this instructable!! I turned them into a bracelet. c:

You should add how many bands you need per fish

45 bands in all. 44 whatever color you want and 1 black for the eyes. ;)

Some how mine broke when I was taking it off. :C so I just spent the last 45 minutes of my life on nothing. Just gotta try again though.
