How to Make a Spiral Lanyard?


To make a spiral lanyard you will need two 36in length different colored pieces of gimp - flat plastic strips of lacing. Fold both piecec of gimp in half and pinch the center; lay both center pieces one across the other to form a 'plus' (+) sign. Cross the ends of one colored piece over the other color and keep in place with your finger. Take one end of the colored gimp that you're holding and fold it over the first fold in the other piece and insert through the loop. Do the same with the other end and form a knot with both loops. Fold both ends of the second colored piece of gimp diagonally across the lanyard. Fold one end of the first colored gimp over the next fold in the other piece of gimp and loop; pull to secure in place so that it does not unravel. Repeat this procedure until you have reached the end of the gimp. Melt the end of the lanyard with a lighter to permanently secure it.
