    Making a friendship bracelet can be a fun and meaningful activity! Here’s a basic guide to get you started:<div>
    </div><div>1. **Gather Materials**: You’ll need embroidery floss or yarn in various colors, scissors, and optionally, tape or safety pins to hold your bracelet in place while you work.</div><div>
    </div><div>2. **Choose a Pattern**: There are many patterns you can choose from, such as stripes, chevrons, diamonds, or hearts. You can find patterns online or create your own.</div><div>
    </div><div>3. **Cut Strands**: Cut several strands of embroidery floss or yarn, each about 60-80 cm long, depending on how long you want your bracelet to be. You’ll need at least two strands per color.</div><div>
    </div><div>4. **Secure the Strands**: Align the strands together and tie a knot at one end, leaving a few centimeters of extra length. You can tape this end to a flat surface or safety pin it to your clothing to keep it steady.</div><div>
    </div><div>5. **Start Braiding**: Separate the strands into groups, depending on your pattern. For example, if you’re making a striped bracelet, each group might consist of one color. Start braiding the strands together, keeping the strands flat and untwisted as you work.</div><div>
    </div><div>6. **Change Colors (optional)**: If you’re using multiple colors, you can switch colors by simply adding a new strand to the group and continuing to braid.</div><div>
    </div><div>7. **Finish the Bracelet**: When your bracelet is the desired length, tie a knot at the end to secure the braids. You can leave extra length for tying the bracelet onto your wrist or trim the ends for a neater finish.</div><div>
    </div><div>8. **Add Embellishments (optional)**: You can personalize your friendship bracelet by adding beads, charms</div>
