How to make a Rainbow Loom Starburst Bracelet
(Please note: This is NOT my original design. I found this on YouTube, and Rainbow Loom invented it.)
I suggest rainbow loom products. All of the supplies I'm using are rainbow loom products, except the hook.
You will need: 41 white rubber bands, 18 blue rubber bands, 18 pink rubber bands, a hook, a loom, and a C-clip.
First, you need to put your loom in this formation, with the red arrow pointing away from you.
Next, take a single white rubber band, and hook it from peg one to peg two.
Now, continue down the side of the loom, and repeat this on the other side. At the end, don't forget to move inwards towards the last middle peg. This is what your loom should look like:
Now we are ready to place the starbands. these are the bands that form the star shapes on the bracelet.
First, choose one color and make a shape like shown below. Put them on in the order starting at one, then two, and so on. Move from the middle out to the number. Start at the top of your loom, and work your way down, continuing this pattern. You can place the colors on however you like, but I like to alternate.
Once this is finished, it is time to begin placing the cap bands. these are the bands that hold the bracelet together. first, take a white band. place it on your index and middle fingers. then, carefully remove it from one side, twist it, and slide it back on your finger, forming a figure eight. then, remove it from your middle finger, and slip it over two your index finger, forming a double-layered band. grab it with both fingers, and slide it onto one of the shown pegs (at bottom). repeat this process until you have covered all the shown pegs.
Now you should have something like this.
Once this is finished, your room should look like this.
Now, we hook the outer bands. Go to the bottom of the loom, and reach under the cap band, grabbing the first band. If you followed what I said exactly, it should hook to the left. Go under all of the bands on the next peg, and pick up the last one, hooking it up. continue doing this until you reach the end of the loom. Repeat it on the other side. your loom should now look like this.
Now, slide your hook under all the bands on the last pin, and taking a white rubber band, grab it with your holding it with one finger and pull it through. continue this process on your hook, using up the remainder of your bands. Grab a band with your hook, pull it through the others, the drop the others and put the other side of the band on your hook.

Guinea Pig Facts
Which guinea pig is right for you: A rex/teddy is a domestic shorthair. You may have to brush it, but that’s fine. They are also very good with kids. This was the right one for me, but here is the link to an online test that shows you what type you want: http://www.youthink.com/quiz.cfm?action=go_detail&sub_action=take&obj_id=211070
Guinea pig’s home: Fleece is the comfiest guinea pig bedding. You lay down about three pieces of cardboard, and a folded piece of fleece on top. DO NOT give your guinea pig woodchip bedding. There are chemicals in the wood that could make them sick or even kill them. http://www.amazon.com/Kritter-Krawler-Exercise-10-Inch-Colored/dp/B0002A5ZFS/ref=sr_1_4?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1410270070&sr=1-4&keywords=guinea+pig+ball is a ball that guinea pigs can roam around the house in. http://www.amazon.com/Ware-Manufacturing-24-Inch-Plastic-Medium/dp/B003TKRYIO/ref=sr_1_1?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1410132071&sr=1-1&keywords=small+guinea+pig+cage is an awesome sized cage for a guinea pig.
Guinea pig toys and supplies: Guinea pigs need hidey houses. This makes them feel safe and secure when they are scared. They also need toys to play with. Little balls of yarn and jingle bells tied together make great toys. They eat carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, and lettuce. There are also special pellets they make for guinea pigs. As a treat I might suggest cucumbers and carrots especially.
Can I get just one guinea pig: You can as long as you spend 2 hours of one on one time with it. They love to feel your heart beat. You can hold it while you watch TV or set it in your lap while you’re on the computer. Be careful, though, because guinea pigs are extremely fragile and you can break their bones easily
How long can you leave your guinea pig alone: You cannot leave your guinea pig alone for more than two days. You can only leave it alone two days if it has enough water, enough food, and has never had escaping problems. Sometimes a guinea pig will knock over its food and the water bottles don’t always work properly, so you should probably leave it two bowls of food and two bottles of water. If you are leaving longer than two days, give it to someone you trust, and show them how to properly take care of it.
How to bathe your guinea pig: You want to use baby shampoo to bathe your guinea pig so it doesn’t burn your guinea pigs eyes. Put the baby shampoo all along your guinea pigs back and the sides and the middle as well. Rub your hands on its skin, checking for anything unusual. Try not to get to much soap in your guinea pigs ears. Massage the feet and wash it under the armpit and the belly.
