Here and further, we will alternate gum - yellow and blue - strictly by turns. Both parts of the lower gum fold to the center. Since the last we put on a blue gum, now we put on a yellow one - also without an overlap. All subsequent rubber bands are worn in the same way. On the left, hook up the bottom yellow gum and drop it towards the center. On the right, hook a blue gum and hook it to the center too.
