My wife wanted some easy cheap party favors for our kid's NERF party. I thought that some NERF dog tags would be fun.
This project required:
- 1/4 inch Acrylic. I was luck that a near by plastic shop gave me some cut off scraps for free.
- Neon colored cord from the craft store
- Grill lighter
- Laser cut files
Step 1: Cut the Tags
I loaded the various acrylic scraps in the laser cutter at my local Maker space and cut out the shapes. You can etch these with whatever you like. I used the NERF logo. I've included the shape for the tag, but did not include the NERF logo in my files.
Step 2: Tie on a Cord
I used a variety of colors of cord and cut each one about 30 inches long. I slid it through the hole and tied a not, making the cord into a necklace. After tying the cord I cut the ends off. Using a small torch, I burned the tips of the cord to keep it from fraying.
Step 3: Final Product
I ended up with a mix of colored tags and various cords.
