    Wow, you really did a great job making that rainbow. The coloured strips are so perfect. And it's so pretty. The knot is a cute idea. It would make a great gift too.

    Me either, it's just a piece of paper. I'm just happy everybody's starting to get the choice.

    That's nice, and a helpful tip for making bands of colour for any other purpose as well.

    Maybe it is just me, but I think that a square knot would look better because it is two cords bound together instead of a single cord with an overhand knot.

    This is a neat idea. I like how you made the cord by flattening and rolling.
