After you’ve collected your materials, let’s start making folded paper bracelets. Creating a folded paper bracelet is a smooth process if you follow the directions carefully:

Fold the strips
Step 2: Now, fold the above-prepared strips one more time from the center. Around 20 units of strips would be required for making the bracelet, so you can color-coordinate according to that.
Insert into loops
Step 3: Then, pick out the first unit in your hand and keep the loops at the front. Take another unit and insert its loops into the loops of the first unit. Flip over the joined piece and insert another unit’s loops into the second unit. Now, keep repeating this process while flipping the piece over after every insertion.
Repeat the process
Step 4: Once reach the last unit, pick it up and open the last fold. Refold the piece to the other side to form an M. Now, take the corners and insert them into another piece as shown in the image.

Step 5: Take hold of the bracelet’s other end. The hole should be in the center of the loop, with the two inner sides separated. Through the open loop, connect the two ends. Bring them all the way to the end. Separate the two ends by folding them away from each other. Place the outer end of the bracelet into the flap as indicated, then repeat on the inside of the bracelet.
