Cord Ends


Click for Printable PDF:  EnglishEspañol, Français

Cord ends are often used for materials like leather and ribbon.  The cord end provides a neat finish and a loop to connect a clasp or another component to the cording.  Since knots can fray or come undone, a cord end is a good option for materials that don't attach securely to regular findings.

Insert the cord or cords beneath the center plate.  If you have several cords, gather the ends then trim them flush.  You can also place a drop of craft glue and/or tie them in a knot to help hold the ends together.  Press the enter plate down followed by one side and then the other.     Press until all sides are firmly and evenly folded and crushed together.
