Directions
 

CUT 20 INCHES OF THE NYLON CORD. FOLD THE LENGTH TO GET 2 EQUAL LENGTHS AND SECURE THE ENDS BY CLIPPING ON THE ALLIGATOR CLIP.
USING THE PORTION OF MONOFILAMENT AS A MAKE SHIFT NEEDLE, START TO STRING ON THE BEADS STARTING WITH A FLOWER, THEN A BICONE, AND REPEAT. THE ALLIGATOR CLIP SHOULD PREVENT THE BEADS FROM FALLING OFF THE END OF THE CORD.
ONCE ALL 9 BEADS ARE STRUNG, REMOVE THE MONOFILAMENT. DADDY CAN TIE THE LOOPED END WITH A SIMPLE OVER HAND KNOT LEAVING A 3 INCH LENGTH OF LOOP. MOVE THE BEADS UP NEXT TO THE FIRST KNOT, REMOVE THE ALLIGATOR CLIP AND TIE ANOTHER KNOT BEHIND ALL THE BEADS. TRIM OFF THE CORD ENDS ABOUT 1 INCH AWAY FROM THE LAST KNOT.
MOM CAN ATTACH THIS TO HER PURSE LIKE VIA A LARK'S HEAD KNOT
