  2. Pour the beads into a flat container
  3. Hold the ends of the cut fishing line with both hands
  4. Pick the beads using the ends per your preferred colors. Then, crisscross (left end to pass through the right bead and vice versa) to make a star. Finish by tying so that the next star doesn’t mix with the previous
  5. Continue the same procedure using the other cut fishing lines. What determines the output is your bracelet design.
