Using a bright silicone rubber band and a slingshot for weaving, you can make a simple heart. Such an article will be an excellent decoration for a beautiful pen or pencil.
You will need:
- red or pink rubber bands - 46 pieces;
- pencil or pen.
Place the slingshot slots in your side. Put the first elastic band on the right column and wrap it around it twice.
Weaving continues with a pair of rubber bands. For two halves, the heart should be prepared for 11 pairs. First we'll weave the first half. The first pair of throw on both columns of the slingshot, and then double the rubber band on the right to throw into the center of the weaving.
Throw the next pair of rubber bands on the slingshot,
and send the lower bands on both sides to the center of the slingshot.
In the same way, you should weave all 11 pairs of rubber bands.
Now you need to free the left column of the slingshot by transferring the rubber band to the right side.
The hook for braiding should be made in the first woven loop, while leaving the free initial rubber band.
Next, you need to lower the loop from the hook to the left column and put on another pair of rubber bands on two posts.
The eyelet on the left side should be thrown off into the middle of the weaving and similarly we continue the weaving of the second half of the heart.
When the second half is ready, the slingshot will get the following picture.
The weave ends with a single gum. It must be put on a slingshot, and all the lower ones should be thrown off in the middle.
Then make a loop by transferring one of the rubber bands to the next column.
The bottom should be thrown off the column, and the remaining one should be removed from the slingshot and tightened well, so that the figure does not bloom.
The finished heart can be put on a pencil: first - the initial double loop,
and then the last one, making 2 turns.
