Step 1: Materials
You'll need16 bands all together. I recommend four of one color, four of another, four of a third color, and four for the body. And if course, a looming hook... I recommend a metal hook. The plastic hook that came with my kit already snapped in half. You can get a metal hook at Walmart for a few dollars in the crochet/knitting isle. Just ask someone that works in that section.
Step 2: Cap and Threading
Take one of the colors (4) and they will be the ones you'll cap. (pic 1) (I'm using multicolored bands for my capped bands)Thread two colors through the cap. (pic 3)Do this three more times so you'll have four on your hook. (pic 4)
Step 3: Cap and Threading (part 2)
Make a cap or of a black band (or obese of the band's you have three of)(pic 1)Now thread one black band through the black cap and lock it. (pic 2)Now thread the black cap&locked band through the four wings you make earlier. They should still be on your hook.(pic 4)Now lock it so that the wings will stay in place. (pic 5)Your project should look like picture mine. (pic 6)now take another band and thread it through the black cap at the top of the butterfly and lock it. (pic 7)The last black band, wrap it around the butterflie's body twice and you're done.
Step 4: You're Finished!!
