Take your base and fold it in half so there is a loop at the top. Tape it down on a flat surface. Now take your wrap and place it under the wrap. Place your wrap as high up as possible without going under the tape.

Take the left strand of your wrap and place it over the left strand of your base. Now take the left strand of your base and put it under your right base strand. Now your 2 wrap strands are parallel. Next take the right wrap strand and place it over the right base strand. Finally put your right wrap strand over your left base strand. Okay now you have your first "eight".
