How do you get strands of embroidery floss even, ordered and folded in half without tangling?

by Sunny

I am trying to make the leaf pattern friendship bracelet using five strands of embroidery floss.

I understand all of the knots used in the video, had the string purchased and ready, but once I cut the strands to the right length I found it IMPOSSIBLE to get the colors in the order that I wanted them, keep them all even, and double them in half without them slipping and not being even or getting tangled up.

So far I've thrown away four packs of floss. This is very frustrating, and I have no clue what I'm doing wrong!

Please help.
