When I was younger, I used to play with rubber bands whenever I had to go on those long car rides. Learning how to create rubber band designs was one way for me to kill time and boredom. Hopefully, this can do the same for you whether you are a kid or not! This guide will teach you how to create a double star with a rubber band. Anyone can do it and all you need is a rubber band and your hands!

1. Make sure the rubber band is able to stretch far enough.
a. Place your index finger and thumb inside the rubber band to see how far it stretches.
