Default Paracord & Ribbon Bracelet... CUTE!!

So I wouldn't have thought of doing this, but what a cute idea!! Do you think they weave the ribbon in after they finish the braid or as they are braiding?

You would have to do it as you weave it. If you are making them properly, the braid is too tight to put it in afterwards.

Cute! I may have to make some with some charms and ribbon.

I have to agree, I think they'd have to braid/weave in the ribbon as they go too. Probably like the way you can braid the Thin Line bracelets.

Have you seen the Type I Accessory Vest cord? Supply Captain has it. I bought a package to check it out. It's a lot thinner than the 550 Paracord & has about 100lb strength according to their website. I'm thinking it would be cool to use for daintier bracelets since it is so much thinner. Putting giving it a try on my "to do" list (which gets longer every day, lol)

Some people use 440 paracord too which is slightly thinner but is still paracord. I haven't tried it yet but am considering it.

That could be cool too! I find that the regular 550 cord is a bit thick for a bracelet for me, but I have little wrists. lol Still love that stuff though! Haven't seen the 440 in person. Is it much thinner? The Accessory cord is probably about 1/8 or an inch, more like a medium rattail cord. Haven't gotten around to making anything yet, but I'd like to do a bracelet and see how it turns out.

I have some 440.......I was hoping it would be a lot thinner, because I don't like to wear my bracelets because they just feel too thick to me.....I don't think they really turned out a whole lot smaller......

I was wondering about that. Thanks for letting us know!! I'm leaning toward the Type I Accessory cord. Supply Captain has it in quite a few colors. I mean, not nearly as many as the 550 Cord, but still a lot and a good selection of "girl" colors too.

Oh, and when I said it's thickness, I was wrong. I guess its 1/16 an inch thick, not 1/8. Sorry. Anyway, I measured mine & it was really close to 1/16 or 2mm. Nice and thin for a ladie's bracelet I think. It won't hold the weight that the 550 will, but according to Supply Capt's website, its still good up to 100 lbs. (And how many people REALLY use it other than to wear it?) But anybody that sells the bracelets could still probably find a market for it since it does still have some strength as a utility cord...)
