Picture of Paracord Key Fob with Charm
Make-to-Learn Contest answers: What did you make? I made paracord key fobs with charms. The main things you need is a charm, some paracord, and a key ring. I made a one for my mamaw for her birthday that has a charm with a cancer ribbon and the word hope (pictured). I chose this charm because she has survived both colon and breast cancer.  I also made one with a music note for my choir teacher (not pictured) and the one with the cross (pictured) for myself. How did you make it? I've been making key fobs/bracelets/ect. since roughly 2008. I saw some charms at hobby lobby the other day and decided to make some key fobs with charms. I couldn't get the small key rings on a couple of the charms (I had cut my nails to short) so I had my mom help me on that, but that was all the help I needed. The only things I changed my mind on were the length and position of the charm. Where did you make it? I made these at home in about 5-10 minutes each. The thing that took the most time was taking the pictures and making sure they came out clear. What did you learn? I learned that I shouldn't cut my nails as short. Haha. But seriously, I really like the way these turned out. I found a use for the necklaces that I never wear! I definitely will be making more of these, and I'll be adding them to the little business that I'm trying to start. :) I'm going to make one with multiple charms and see how that looks. In this instructable, I will show you how to make a paracord key fob with a charm. These are great for small gifts to give to people. They're really easy to make! Materials Paracord (1 ft per 1 in. EX: 3 ft for a 3 in fob) (For a 2-colored key fob, 1/2 ft of each color for every inch EX: 1 ft blue + 1 ft red for a 2 in key fob) Scissors Needle nose pliers Tape measure/ruler Key ring Charm (I got the square hope charm at hobby lobby and the cross is from a necklace. I had to put small key rings on each of the charms. I think the small key rings were 6 mm) Lighter

The charms make these look more attractive than their utilitarian brethren. And the rationale behind these as gifts is wonderful. Great entry in the Make-to-Learn contest! I hope lots of people vote for you.
