Here are a couple of projects to use up cord ends. They make great zipper pulls. The top knot in each photo shows the knot I used in the tutorials. The red and tan knots used 1 foot of left over cord and the middle white knots 1 1/2 feet each although one foot would have been possible with this heavier cord. The left hand knots each took a liottle over 2 feet of the ever thicker cord

Both finished knots use the same starting knot. Middle a cord to make a bight and bring down both ends along side the bight
Bring the left end Under 3, over 3 and through the loop formed
Bring the left end over, under and up through the loop as shown
Slightly tighten that base knot
Take either end and bring it down to the right of the adjacent cord going under cord one as shown
Do the same with the remaining cord
Take either end and continue in that same path and up through the center on the knot
Do the same with the other cord and tighten the knot
Starting with the base knot (see steps 1 - 3) bring either end down to the left of the adjacent cord as shown going under one
Bring the remaining cord down an shown
Take either end and bring it over 2 and under 2 (crossing point) as snhown
Do the same with the other end and tighten the knot. This has the appearance of the diamond/lanyard knot but is a bit bulkier
