Before I start I want to say I have no clue why they are called lanyards, SO this is not what they are supposed to be! I made mine a bracelet! Do WHATEVER with yours!

Gather supplies! Obviously I am on an airplane so I can not bring scissors, BUT before I left I cut everything! \u2708\u2702

Do the same on the other side and repeat and repeat and repeat! It does not matter which side you do it on from then on. NOTE: I am sure there are other ways on how to do this- this is the easiest! 😃

NOTE: Keep pulling all sides of the plastic lacing on the lanyard to make it tight when you finish each "lace"

Here is the finished product! This is a different one I made since they take FOREVER! So enjoy your lanyard creation!
