How to make Rainbow Loom Santa Minion Ornament / Bracelet

My 8 years daughter, Michelle, would love to show you how to make a Rainbow Loom Santa Minion Ornament, you can also add extension to make it into a bracelet, the bracelet loom makers we are using in this video is Twist n loop, we purchased it at Five below, it’s only US$5.00 each, it is not as good as the Rainbow Loom brand, but enough for what we need.

She was born with Amniotic Band Syndrome (ABS) which affected 7 of her fingers. So please be patient when you see she has difficulties on making the bracelet in this video. Thank you and please enjoy this video!

In the same mall, I found another store selling rubber bands and the kit too, this one found at Toys Tyme, it’s call COLORFUL LOOM BANDS, sellinh $14.99, and those bands are $4.99 each pack with 600 bands and 24 clips.

This is an off brand, with that price I would perfered to buy the official Rainbow Loom bracelet making kit.  Those rubber bands also $1 more than offical brand.
