The 2 tiny paracord bracelets I made for my baby, he loves them.
Guide I made for the basic survival bracelet - 2 colors (no buckle).
Step-1 make a simple knot at the end of the cord and fuse both edges for work comfort. Step-2 fuse the work end of the orange cord, pull the white inner strings about 10mm back into the yellow cord. Insert the orange (fused end) into the yellow cord and fuse gently with lighter for a nice finishing.
Step-15 cut and fuse the Orange and yellow left overs. Make a simple knot or a decorative knot at the end making sure the bracelet is not too tight on the wrist before cutting and fusing the knot end.
In case you decide to add another layer of paracord cut and fuse the end only after checking it fits comfortably on the wrist, as the extra layer will make the bracelet tighter.
Another option of creating a nice bracelet is to add another layer of paracord in the same or a different colour. This adds thickness to the bracelet so be sure to taken this into account when making the first layer, leave enough cord for the next layer. Adding another layer can be decorative on bag handle, dog collar etc'.
