It’s Monday! Which means it’s time for a new tutorial.

Are you getting excited for the Monday yet? Yes? Good! Because that is how I want you to feel every time you return to my blog 🙂

The dogs I made previously have been very popular, so I wanted to treat you to another one. I’ve asked which dog breed I should make next and the border collie came up a couple of times. Thank you for your input on that!

This dog is a variation on the EXTREMELY popular dog that I created for my Craftsy Class. If you want to learn more about making Adorable Animal Cake Toppers I can offer you a 50% discount on my Class! A must have class if you like following my tutorials and want to learn more about modelling.

    Very clever but you just need to add a white tip to the tail………all border collies have a white tipped tails.
