How to Make the Papillon

papillon rainbow loom

Aunt Susan strikes again! She came up with this simple design that we call the Papillon.

As you know from our stop motion film, we happen to have a Papillon – but to be honest, we didn’t name our bracelet the Papillon because of her! (Sorry Rosie!)

The bands that follow the outside of the bracelet kind of remind us of a butterfly – and Papillon is french for ‘butterfly’.

    Nice bracelet, LoomLove! I have a few questions for you.
    When are you going to post your aunt’s original design for the Illusion bracelet? I can’t wait!

    What do you think are the best designs for dark-colored (with white dots) polka dot bands?

    Thanks! I love your website!
