<p>my father was a military paratrooper when I was growing up, he`d have these all over his gear (lanyards, zipper pulls etc) and showed us kids (4 of us, me the youngest) how to make them. I am now 51 yrs old and lost my father a handful of years back. It was very memorable for me to make a few of these lastnight. It`s been so long I forgotten how to do these. I THANK YOU !!</p>
