The paracord bracelet

My Boy Scout and survival enthusiast, Kyle, recently discovered how to make paracord bracelets.
They're actually pretty neat!

The elasticity of paracord and its ability to withstand immense weight makes it a very useful tool during emergency situations. Paracord is a must-have in every survival kit. Paracord can be used as bootlaces, clothesline, pet collars, emergency tourniquets, knife handle sheaths, belts and gun straps.

He's spent the greater part of two days making them for his friends and Scout troop.

He's really quite good at it and is considering selling them online!

I just don't have the heart to tell him that its just like knitting...
but for dudes!

Oh! I just noted he might sell the bracelets. If he wants to sell them...then he needs to keep the instructions top secret!!! They do look nice!!! Sarah

The bracelets are a big thing at our hospital in B`ham. Everyone is wearing them. So tell him to sell them online. We are paying $5.00 for each one. Love mine!!
