The true mini braid is basically three classic alpha band bracelets braided onto each other.

Designer Claire's Wears has also created a braided design using original rainbow loom bands which has inspired this design and her tutorial could be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CsngRpBaiQ

These smaller bands allow for a more intricate look. It is a simple design and relatively quick to make using the alpha loom.
