Great video. I would think if you went to the home site the printed material would be their.
Thank to Upper Room for putting this in the devotion. My grandson will enjoy this very much.
Seeing and doing is great. Wish I'd have had some para cord . Thanks.

Oh God, I love really love this, tried to save it.... no way. How can I get it? I mean, I need more time to practice "hands on". Thanks UR
Here are printable instructions: http://www.ehow.com/how_12069487_make-paracord-cross-necklace-two-strings.html. Hope this helps.
Is it possible to get a printed copy of these directions?
The link above to printed instructions do not seem to match Jay's String Cross. In the video they seem to show a sheet of instructions with pictures. Is there a way to download that? Thanks & may God Bless you reading this. Amen!
Would very much like printed instructions for the string cross....easier to figure out, share and make a project in our church. Thanks
Lita of South Haven, MI,is right. The printed instructions from Jo do not match the video. Where can we get the instruction sheet shown in the video? Jay, if you read this, please let us know where we can get a copy. This would be a great agape for Emmaus walks! God bless!!
Hi, Jay! My name is Sharon Yost and I'm from Roseville, Ohio. I truly enjoyed watching this video on how to make your cross. I may try to make one sometime, however, I was inspired to have a Cross Ministry myself back in 2008 to give away before Easter. My inspiration came from a little paper cross someone gave me one time that had a verse on it. The idea given to me has to do with tissue boxes. The patterns on some are so nice I made myself a template of the paper cross and then trace them on the sides of the tissue box and cut out and write scripture on the back and then make chains for them from embroidery floss, punching a whole with a paper punch and then attaching them At the time, I put them in envelopes and added a little card telling the persons to use them for book marks or to hang on their rearview mirror. That first year, I made 80 and gave them away. All this started, because I couldn't throw away such beautiful works of art. Since that time, I slip them in birthday cards, sympathy cards and get well cards. I call my ministry, Rose of Sharon Cross Ministry, as my parents named me Sharon Rose. I do not have as much time as I'd like right now to work on them. Oh, and I also do colors according to birth month or a persons favorite color. Keep up the good work you are doing, and may God continue your ministry!
I love your ministry! May God continue to bless YOU and every cross you pass along to others.
What type of string do you use? Where can it be purchased?
Video on today is not same as yesterday. Where to find video without using straw and using two colors cord?
Thank you for sharing! I would like a printed instruction sheet. It would be great to share with the youth at our church during the mentor program.
this is a different video than yesterday--I like the other one--where did it go?
Love this idea! I'm planning on making a bunch and giving them to the kiddos at our church service! Thanks for sharing this wonderful ministry idea!
Where can we get an instructional sheet of the string cross? One that matches the video. Please share and God bless
Loved your "String Cross Reminders" devotional in the Upper Room. I printed out your cross instructions and watched your video, but it looks a bit complicated; I'll give it a try. God bless!
Where can we get a printed sheet like the one in the video?
FOUND IT!!!!!! www.fusionknots.com
video listed on you tube under fusion knot
"Fusion Knots" video shows knots, but doesn't show how to make this necklace. Would love to be able to make them. If anyone finds printed instructions, please post source on here!
I love this but I am with everyone else, the instructions in the video would be so nice to have. I have tried to search several ways with no luck finding it. I have a lot of time sitting due to being a caregiver and would love to make these and give to our local homeless people and others. I certainly hope that Jay sees this and hears the cry out for all of us who are interested. There are other crosses but this one seems more simple and quicker to do. Thanks so much for sharing this! I will figure it out if it takes me watching the video over a hundred times! Lol Printed instructions would be so nice and then I could share with others and teach them also.
Could someone please post a photo of the finished product so I can see if I'm interested in making one? Thanks in advance.
Our "team" is leaving on a mission trip to South Africa in just 10 days! We'd love to make and take many of your string crosses but need a printed copy of instructions ASAP. Would you be able to send one to me so we can get started?
Thanks so much.
I, too, would like printed instructions for Jay's string crosses. Would like to make for a children's sermon. Never was able to locate directions at the address in the Upper Room devotional. Hope to hear soon. Hilda Forrest Lexington NC
Me too! Thank you, Deborah
I, too, would like printed instructions for Jay's string crosses. The video is great but it would be beneficial to have the printed sheet.
I, too, would love to have the printed instructions for Jay's string crosses. I have just become a member of my church and would like to make these for everyone one at church for Easter. If you could please mail them to me at my home I would b very appreciative. Thank You,
I, too, would like a printed instructions for Jay's string crosses. The video is great, but the older people can not keep up with the directions. I would love to use this as a club project for my county home extension ladies to give to the abused children, nursing homes, missionaries and many churches-but I need an instruction sheet on the steps, like the one on the video. Of my 22 members, only one has a computer! If anyone has a copy of Jay's instruction sheet, would you please send me a copy to this: judymomofcrouse@yahoo. com..thanks so much. God bless all of you.
We have transcribed some instructions from the video (and created stills to go with them). If you would like these written instructions, simply email Upper Room associate editor, Susan King, at email@example.com.
Hi, everyone. I'm new here. I read the Jan. 30th reading by Jay Bassinabouts making sgtring crosses. Well I went to the site and watched them make a strings crossRoom it was not the same one that I had seen made the day before. Then it was called "Jay's croched string crosses." I even called the Upper : they looked it up for me and it was not the one I was looking for. So I started making a crochet cross following the instructions I had. I modified it a little and they turned out grest. The ladies group I belonged to just loved them. Everyone of the ladies has a copy of my directions and they write their own versions. I just wish I could find that video to make sure
Found these written instructions for a rosary; Steps 10-13 show how to make the cross. Hope these help! God Bless! I copied, pasted into word, and saved as a PDF file.
