I have a large jasmine bush. How can I start more plants from it?

I would like to start some new Jasmine shoots and braid them as I've seen this done before. But I tried cuttings in water and they don't grow roots.

    Make the cuttings about 6 inches long, and cut each one directly below a leaf. Strip the leaves from the bottom part of the cutting and dip it in rooting hormone powder. Place each cutting into a hole in damp sand in a planter, and place the planter in a plastic bag to hold moisture. Keep the planter in a 75-degree room out of direct sunlight. Roots should develop within a month, after which you can transplant the jasmine plants into potting soil to strengthen their root systems before putting them into the garden. Keep in mind they like being kept plenty moist (that doesn't mean soaked). Good luck!!
