Finding The Centers

      The first step in starting most boondoggle projects is in finding the centers of the strands you'll be using. It doesn't matter how long the strands are when you're first starting out, but they should be long enough so that, when folded in half, you'll have enough length to complete your goal.

Using two pieces of boondoggle the same length, start by holding the strands, so that both ends meet between your fingers...
Bring the other ends up and between your fingers, so they meet the first two ends...
After matching them up so they're even, start running your fingers down the length of the strands...
Eventually, you'll come to the end, where the strands have formed a loop...
Right at the center of this loop is the CENTER of each strand of boondoggle!
