I have made many cool Rainbow Loom creations that a lot of people love. If you are not aware of this hot trend from last year, it is a way to make something creative with many tiny rubber bands. There is also a loom that helps you make your designs.

I started by watching YouTube videos. I watched Justin's Toys' "How to Make a 5-row Lettered Bracelet." They also had a graph to tell you how to make each alphabet letter. I followed all the steps and it was both a little hard and easy. It took a long time, but it was worth it.

I was so proud of the bracelet I made that I took it to school and showed it to my schoolmates. Most everyone was amazed. I loved how it turned out, but it was too big for my wrist, so I made it a charm. Even though it is really big for a charm, it is still pretty.
