CHASE OWENS: Boy Scout Artist

Chase is our newest studio assistant full of ideas and energy.  He has made a collection of para cord wrist bands and key holders. This cording, known as paracord, was originally used for parachute lines in WWII. When paratroopers landed, they used the cord 
to tie down tarps, tents,or even replace their boot ties. The cords were also made into wristbands to count the paces in a mile and kept in case a soldier got lost and needed cord for survival. This versatile material was also used by astronauts on one of Hubble telescope missions. 

Just think of what you can do with one or two of these things!
