I made these for the Shop the Swap, um, swap, but I thought they might be a good idea if anyone was stuck with what to make their blokes/gals for Valentines Smiley

I think it's pretty self explanatory, but you just take a plastic key fob, remove the ring, pull out the label & plastic cover, and replace with a doodle or collage. You could even write a secret message on the back.

I think they'd be pretty cute customised to the persons interests like fishing or cycling or whatever. Obviously it's a small space, but you could fit some small images in. Part of a bike wheel, fish head, cogs, football team colours/mascot, whatever. Then attach a relevant charm/threads to the bottom, and voila! Cheesy

What a great little idea! I love all your collages in them. I would, however, really be interested in seeing one with "part of a fish head".  Cheesy

Thanks!

Sadly I don't have a fish to butcher for fish head parts. Plus I think the smell might be a little off-putting after a while. You'll have to make do with this worried looking fella, racky Cheesy

I like him, though! This is pretty cool: having instant, made to order gratification.

Can you make one with a clown? (Thought I'd throw out a bit of a challenge for you.  Cheesy)

Clearly I need to work up a more difficult challenge, though.
