I chose muliti-colored bands and green but you can choose any colors you want.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
*A rainbow Loom
*A rainbow loom hook (preferably metal)
*50 main color - this color will be your gift wrapping
*9 - 10 secondary color - this will serve as your ribbon
**NOTE** it's a good idea to have extra bands just in case some break.
Step 2: Placing the Main Color on the Loom
Make sure the circled are facing away from you. (pic 1)Then place you're main color (double bands) up each isle SIX times. (pic 2)
Step 3: Add Triangles
Add triangles from the top all the way to the bottom (single bands)... except for the last two horizontal pegs, here you just put one band across. (pic 1)The last triangle you want to push the top of that triangle down a peg. (Pic 2) After you do this, cap the left and right pegs where you moved the triangle downwards. (pic 2)
Step 4: Turn Around
The circles should be facing you. (pic 1)Now, just loom away. Go behind the cap and peice of the triangle and grab the double bands and place them on the corrisponding peg. (pic 2)
Step 5: Locking
Take a band and lock all three top pegs so your project won't fall apart. Don't make them too too tight because we'll be undoing them soon. (pic 1)
Step 6: Take It Off Gently
Your present should look like mine. (pic 1) Then stick your hook gently through the top middle of the project and thread the middle loop through so it's hidden. (pic 2-3)
Step 7: Threading
Fold in half and very gently unhook the locked bands. (pic 1)1Be very careful as to not let the band slip all the way through! Now slip your hook through the part of the project that doesn't have the lock band and gently grasp one half of the lock band that you just undid. Hold the other end tightly so you don't lose it. (pic 2)
Step 8: Hide the Loops
Just as you his the middle loop, do the same with ONE of the other two. (pic 1)
Step 9: Add the Ribbon
Take four bands of your secondary color and place then across the present. (pic 1)Now take the other four bands and place them in the other direction. (pic 2)
Step 10: Bow Time
Now use you loom to make a simple bow. I'm making a bow with three ribbons, is easy. (pics 1 - 4)Now all you have to do is put it on you present like you did with the ribbons.
Step 11: You're Done!
I hope you enjoyed this instructable! I had fun showing you how to make it. A great idea would be to make half a dozen of these and make a cute Christmas charm bracelet! Please leave comments and a picture of your present, I'd love to see everyone's work.
