So, Your Webkinz Wants a Collar (How-to IMAGE HEAVY!)
I created this step by step how-to because someone wanted to know how I made collars for my own Webkinz. I made this a lot simpler than what I actually do when I make collars but I tried to keep in mind the different age groups that might be using this. Hopefully it is simple enough for anyone and everyone to use. Feel free to improvise or change any parts to suit you! One supply I forgot to include was a paint brush but hopefully everyone can figure out where to use it lol
Some changes that can be made: using sticky-back velcro instead of sewing or using fabric glue instead of either... just remember to let the glues completely dry before you attempt to use the velcro closure! Metal jump-rings can be used in place of the thin ribbon but I didn't show how to use those since it requires more specialized tools than most homes may have; but they can be used instead.
Actual metal dog tags can be used instead of paper ones. Some pet stores have pet-tag making machines that would be perfectly suited for anyone wanting a more 'real' pet tag. It is also possible to use precut metal shapes for dog tags but again this gets into having specialized materials on hand which is why this was also not included in this tutorial; again it can be used instead of paper.
I also mentioned using metallic cardstock or heavy weight paper. If you have it use it! It will simplify your project and make it go a lot quicker to the finish! Of course if you don't have it, painting metallic paints on thicker paper works just fine
Thin cardboard can be painted and used instead of heavy-weight paper... just make sure you can use a hole-punch on it!
Again there are no hard and fast rules in this How-to, it is set forth as a guide for anyone that may want to follow it loosely or for anyone that may choose to follow it thoroughly. If there are typos I apologize in advance... just point it out to me and I will do my bect to repair it in a timely fashion.
Although some pictures are not as clear, I hope the directions make it easy enough to understand what is going on in each step-by-step photo. So without further ado... Enjoy the tutorial for your Webkinz's very own ribbon-collar!
As soon as I get a response from someone I will post the remaining parts of the tutorial

Thanks a bunch
Awww! Thank you for being so sweet!
I just keep on seeing all the punctuation mishaps and grammar mistakes! lol The image program I use doesn't have any lower punctuation marks in the font collection so I have to manually insert them after I am done writing anything. Invariably (especially if I am tired!) I will miss a few! I probably should have just waited until today to finish it but if I stopped making it I don't know if I would have completed it LOL Hopefully I will get the energy to go back and repair the mistakes lol
If anyone actually makes one for their Webbie please post pics! I would love to see anyone's collar-creations!
