Here are 7 EDC projects to try for 2017.

#1 Bracelet

The paracord bracelet is one of the best places to start your paracord journey. The Cobra is the most common bracelet and will give you 7-8 feet of usable paracord in an emergency. If you would like more bracelet tutorials, check our YouTube channel.

#2 Keychain

A keychain is a nice project to do with scrap paracord since you'll only need a couple feet. There are a ton of different weaves that are great for keychains and so easy to put on your keys and carry every day.

#3 Hidden Compartment Keychain

The hidden compartment keychain takes the traditional keychain up a notch. You can fit a couple of rolled up bills as well as matches, or anything that is skinnier than a pencil. Here is a great tutorial for a paracord hidden compartment keychain.
