HELPFUL TIPS
- You must totally complete both Step 1 and Step 2 to get back to a flat braid.

- If you have a long strip of leather, you can continue on with another Step 1, but you must have room for another Step 2 also, or it just won't work.

- Keep your braiding toward the top of the strip, and simply even out your braid spacing when you are done.
-
For a simple closure, punch or cut a hole on one end of the strip and sew a pearl shaped button or bead on the other. Or you can install a snap.
