Step 1: Matereals

For this fun little project you will need the following:

  • Scisors
  • Rail Cutter
  • A Design
  • A new Sharpie
  • Hole Puncher
  • Sheet of Plastic (Got mine from an old zip-up folder)

Step 2: Cutting the Sheet Plastic

I cut my strip that was about 14 cm into 3 pieces one of which became a dud so I was left with two pieces to use.

Step 3: Obtaining a Design

Find a cool emblem from a game or design you have and upload or download to your computer. If you have any photo editing software, use it now. (you can always use the standard crop on the default photo editor like paint) Open your design and make it to just a little smaller than your plastic so that it fits nicely. Because we will be using a sharpie don't make the design to complicated.

Step 4: Putting It Together

Tape your plastic to the design that you printed out and align so that there is no part of the design off the plastic.

Step 5: Tracing Is Good

Step 6: More Cutting

This step is optional, you can cut a little part off the corner to make it look cooler. Only cut one corner if you do so.

Step 7: Hole Punching

Punch a hole in the opposite corner to the cut (If you decied to do so) and you have a cool Key Chain identifier!
