Remove slack from the warp cords
The warp cords are the dark blue and teal cords that run around the circumference of bracelet.
Using the round nose pliers grab the teal cord somewhere near the center and pull a small loop snug. Move to the next loop and draw the cord through adding an even, firm tension each time.

As you go the slack loop will grow in size.
Do not over tighten.
You will notice the loops that are loose and those that are firm.
Repeat this process with the blue cord. Work both ends from the middle until the tension is even around the entire circumference
Draw the slack through both ends. When complete the bracelet will have some shape and all the cords will be evenly tensioned.
