This will show you how to make a bracelet out of a 3-foot USB cord.
It will fit a 6-7 inch wrist nicely, if you have a smaller wrist you can use a smaller cord.
You can also use this to keep any cords or wires from tangling (steps 1-8) it also shortens it to about 4th of it's original size.

Step 1: The Chain Knot
The method used is called a "chain knot" which i'll use in these instructions.
To begin make a small loop near one of the USB heads.
Form the part above the loop into an small arch as shown.
Push the arch through the loop.
Now tighten, make sure its as tight as you can get it!
You should have a loop coming out of the old loop.
Now, like before, make an arch with the cord as shown.
And push the arch through the loop.
Repeat this about 8-9 more times and move to next step.
Remember, as it goes on you'll keep making arches and putting them through the loops. You'll pretty much be repeating steps 1-7.
When finished "linking" it should look something like this.
Step 9: Make the Bracelet
Loosen the other end. (see image)
You'll be doing this next part on your wrist, but you can wriggle it on later if you want.
Put the opposite head through the loosened end.
Tighten the end you put the head through.
now put the other head through the other loosened end (You should have left it loose on step 8. )
Step 14: Finish
Now your done! Wear it, give it, use it, enjoy!
