How do you tie off an elastic cord, as in a bracelet?

- Brenda
I recommend using a surgeon's knot or sailor's knot to finish the ends of Elastic Powercord.

Here is a link to a ''Stretchy Cord Bracelet'' how-to video and illustrated instructions that details a sailor's knot.

Prestretch your cord before using it as it will help prevent it from breaking. And if you find it hard to string your beads onto the cord, dust the cords with some baby powder before stringing.
