Consider these two tips when working with elastic cord. Cut the cord to the length you need then hold an end in each hand and draw your hands outward, stretching the cord. Repeat this motion at least three times. Pre-stretching helps ensure the cord won't break after you've finished your design.
Place a small amount of baby powder in your hand then run the cut length of cording through the powder. By applying a fine coating of baby powder to the cording you will make it less ''sticky'' and therefore easier to string on your beads.
