I wonder if anyone of you have seen those before... Huh
I think they're really nice.They are cords made of plastic that you can plait them in many different ways!!here are some me n my friends have made...I wish I could post a tutorial but I find it a bit difficult to show...so if anyone wants to show new ways to plait them I would be very grateful!!

We called them Gimp too.

I went through a stage of making them a couple years ago now when my Mom was in hospital. It's amazing how many people made bracelets with gimp growing up and how many good memories they have of it.

See?



Those are all butterfly style ones.

The butterfly was always my favorite.

Here is one I made a few weeks ago:



Its a quadruple butterfly.

Some woman at work brought some in during a fundraiser to entertain us between calls and we all started showing off what we remember from camps of days gone by.

I remember when I was a counselor, we used to have these HUGE competitions of who could use the most strings, colors, the widest, the longest, the most complicated.  It was soo funny.

The butterfly was usually what I resorted too.  I made one with 8 strings once.  I never finished it.  It was ridiculous.

Oh yeah, enjoy my thigh shot!  The cord brings out my tan  Tongue

Used to make these all the time. It was such fun. When I was about twelve I came up with the idea that instead of a lemonade stand I would make a stand and sell these ...never did. I doubt I would've sold much anyway.

But I think my dad still uses the one I made him as a keychain.
