Parachute cord (also paracord or 550 cord) is a lightweight nylon kernmantle rope originally used in the suspension lines of US parachutes during World War II. Once in the field, paratroopers found this cord useful for many other tasks. It is now used as a general purpose utility cord by both military personnel and civilians. This versatile cord was even used by astronauts during STS-82, the second Space Shuttle mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope.
It is one of the reliable 'tools' to be added in your survival gear.Apart from this i found many interesting projects.The links are given and i hope you will succeed.

I have a 550 paracord "550 Survival Cord TM" by Brigade QM of USA, 100' length with 7 internal strands, it is ideal for survival, camping and geneal use but not recommended for climbing or rappling.
