Step 5: Once you are ready to finish off your project, there will be two rubber bands on the pegs. Take the bottom band and move it up and over the two pegs. Use the hook to grab the rubber band that is on both pegs, leaving you with two loops on the hook. Grab one “S” clip and place both loops on one side of the clip. On the opposite end of your bracelet, use the hook to grab two loops and place them on the other side of the “S” clip.
