Step-by-Step Instructions:

1. Take your cording and fold it in half. At the middle point, feed your cord through the loop on your metal clip and create a loop knot.

2. Tie a knot 0.5" from the base of the clip.

3. Using your crafting needle, thread on one 19mm bead and push it all the way down over the knot to the clip.

4. Remove your crafting needle, and thread on to one string 3 x 9mm beads and on the other 1 x 12mm bead.

7. Repeat step 3 & 4 three more times, until you have your bauble pattern. Make sure that you put the 9mm beads on the opposite side as the last pattern segment. You should have the pattern finished with a 19mm bead at the end. Push all the beads up tightly against each other and straighten out the design.

8. Make a loop with both strings about 3.5” long. Loop a knot as tight as you can against your last 19mm bead. Note that for US pacifier clip standards, the total length should be no longer than 8" (including the clip), so adjust length if needed.

9. Make a second loop knot about 0.5” from the double knot with your two loose strings. This will be a knot that sits in the middle of the last bead, so make sure your knot is in an appropriate spot.

An unexpended twist on a design can be the difference that gets your product noticed, and we love this detailed flower design using our delicate Saucer beads.

Fun Soother Clip Design DIYsModern Soother Clip Designs 2021Usually saucer beads are used to give space between larger beads or to give a small detail between beads, but why can’t they spotlight every once in a while?? With this design, the focus is all on them!

Supplies Needed:

Step-by-Step Instructions:

1. Take your cording and fold it in half. At the middle point, feed your cord through the loop on your metal clip and create a loop knot.

3. Take your string that has two saucer beads, and feed the working end through the last saucer bead on the end of the other string. This will create a crossing point.

5. Continue to repeat the pattern until you are happy with the length of your lanyard. We liked the length of 30 saucer beads. Note that for US pacifier clip standards, the total length of your entire pacifier clip should be no longer than 8" (including the clip), so adjust length if needed.

8. Continue to feed your strings back down the pattern until you reach your next middle saucer bead.

9. Feed one side through the middle of the saucer bead, but leave a loop out. Feed your other string the opposite way through the middle saucer bead. Wrap the string once around the loop left out and pull tight on your working ends. By wrapping your string around the loop left out, you will create a single knot. By pulling on each side equally, your knot will end up under the saucer bead. Repeat this step if you want a second knot.

*At Cara & Co, we take safety seriously. We have had our custom tutorial designs above third-party tested by a CPSC accredited testing lab to ensure they meet compliance standards for Canadian (SOR/2011-17) and US (ASTM F963-17) children's pacifier clip requirements. However, this does not remove the responsibility of each customer to ensure that the products they create from this tutorial are tested and meet all relevant compliance standards.  Note that the bauble and diamond box pacifier clips meet both the US and Canadian compliance standards.  However, the flower pacifier clip meets the safety compliance standards for Canada, but the design is not recommended for US customers, as CPSIA/ASTM F963 standards require that no pacifier clip be able to pass through the standard choke test when in a non-compressed, folded state.

***Small objects and beads can present choking hazards to young children. Never leave a child unattended with beads or other products. Always dispose of any damaged product.
