I'm sure you've seen them EVERYWHERE. They have been on my list of projects to do, forever. And finally my friend Jen and I got together and GOT-IT-DONE. We each managed to get a few done (but not without errors and several do overs).
This is a key chain. I also stamped some small washers (same size as the Ben one) with "B" and "M" on them for my kids. But I need to get a different size washer to accompany them that will say "B&A, 2002". The one that I tried it on doesn't quite look right.
This is seriously the cheapest project ever! I think the small washers were like 10 cents each and the big one 15 cents. The stamp set Jen got at Harbor Freight for $5 (thanks Helping Little Hands for that tip, you can also check out her blog and many other for step by step tutorials). The chain I used was left over from Monster's birthday bash last year when we gave dog tags as party favors. I snipped it down to the length I wanted, strung on my washers and attached to my key chain.
Jen and I are going to get together and work on some more fancy ones. Like having a bead/birthstone hanging down in the center of the washer. I'm also going to help her bust out a ton that say "Adoption Rocks." She going to make them to raise money for her upcoming adoption of some babes from Ethiopia.
