Lastly, personalize the photo keychain.
I made two, one to give to my son’s grandmother and one to give to mine. I didn’t want the back to be plain and wanted them to be a little personalized, so I added HTV to them. (Don’t look JoJo & Granny!)
On the first one, I added the name my son calls his grandmother in a script font and placed the dot circle that I shared above around it. I let him choose the color that he wanted her to have, blue glitter HTV. Her birthday is this weekend, so he wants to give it to her then.
On the one for my grandmother, I made a split monogram with her last initial and placed Granny in the center. I don’t think anyone in the family has called her by her name, or even mom, since I, the first grandchild, was born! I was in the gifted and talented program when I was in school. Granny got her master’s when I was in 4th grade, and she moved from a regular 4th grad teacher to become our school’s Wing’s teacher. It was too hard for me to remember to call her by her last name, so everyone in the class began calling her Granny! So, of course, I had to put Granny!
Cut the HTV, remember to mirror the image before cutting, and place the shiny side down on the cutting mat.
Weed the design and center it on the back of the faux leather photo keychain. Put a piece of wax paper over it and iron it, pressing down firmly, for about 15-20 seconds. Do not let the iron go over the little piece of faux leather that holds the keyring. It will stretch it and cause it to thin. Some glitter escaped the design, so I wiped it with a towel.
That’s it! Your faux leather photo keychains are complete! I just love them!
