I've always wondered how can i attach the dog tag on the collar, so that do not jingle all the time. Here is my little solution to it.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

>> scissors
>> paracord needle
>> lighter

Step 2: The Lanyard Knot

At first we make a lanyard knot. A description of this can be found very quickly in the internet.

Step 3: The First Strand

Аt first we bring one end of the cord out.

Step 4: Knotting

We follow the bottom strand on the knot (on the right side) all the way and finally going thru the middle.

Step 5: Making a Loop

We start from the top with the second strand and form a loop. Then we follow another strand (on the left side) all the way. Finally we go under four strands thru the middle.

This technique i learned from Paracordist Creations LLC of
Here you can find his YouTube video:
