Introduction: DIY Custom Keychains! (Dice)

Keychains on the cheap, makes a great gift.
Screw eyes, chain, and something small of your choosing!
I used D20's (Dungeons and Dragons, and other RPG dice) for my flash drives.

Step 1: What You Need

Materials:
Small Screw Eyes............ 14 for $1.50
Small Chain....................... $0.32 per foot
Dice..................................... $0.65 each

Tools:
Drill Press
Vise Grips (closing links and screwing in eyes)
Wire Cutters (bending links open)

Step 2: Make IT!

Drill a hole for the screw eye, slightly smaller than the threads.
Screw in the screw eye, you will need pliers to assist in this.
Use pliers or wire cutters to pull apart links in the chain.
Put the chain through the screw eye, and pinch shut with pliers.
Attach to keys, flash drives, or whatever!

Step 3: Done!

Give away as small gifts to your D&D; buddies, or put them on your flash drives so you stop loosing the little boogers :P

When i started playing rpg games i ordered a pound-o-dice, available from many online retailers and ebay, and i got a lot of d20's in that. Otherwise gaming stores usually sell dice individually for 30-80 cents a piece.
