Paracord Crafts / Sailing / Salsa Challenge.
Daja hits the high seas for her first sailing lesson! From land to sea, she finds some freedom in learning how to rig and sail her own boat.

– Salsa’s vary greatly and can be made with many different ingredients according to your tastes. Some salsas can be sweet, some savory and some spicy!
– Don’t forget, it is recommended that kids ages 9-13 eat at least 2 ½ cups of vegetables each day. Salsa is a perfect recipe to pack in the veggies and satisfy part of your daily vegetable needs.

– 550 Paracord: 19ft one color, 19ft a second color
– Plastic or metal buckle
– A D-Ring
You are going to start out by joining both pieces of paracord to make one single cord. First, trim an end of each color at an angle. Then use your lighter to melt the ends and press them together while they are still hot.
Fold the cord in half at the joint you just made. Thread the loop through the female part of your buckle. Secure the cord to the buckle by making a hitch knot
Now we are going to set the size of the paracord dog collar and secure the other end of the buckle.
Slide the D-Ring on over the other end of the collar and up until it’s touching the buckle end you just attached. (the male piece)
Now, let’s start with the standard cobra weave.
Turn the collar around and run the ends through the slot to make a more secure connection to the buckle.
This is where our Cobra becomes King Cobra!
Continue all the way down until you are back where you started. Get as close to the D-Ring as possible.
This last step is where you will secure the cords and finalize the collar.
