OK I made this a while ago but I didn't get photos until last night.
My mom was throwing away an old computer and I hijacked all the keys from the keyboard. I proceeded to scour the craftster boards for something cool to make, I consider bracelets and rings but then I remembered that I don't wear jewelry so I settled on a belt buckle.

me with my belt on pretending to study for finals

I call it a prototype because it's not very sturdy and it took 5 mins to make. I took the keys for my name and year of birth, I hot glued them to a little wooden board then I hot glued that on to one of those slider belt buckles. I plan on buying one of those inlay belt buckles and using resin or something to attach the keys to increase stability.

Patrick: I'll tell you a little story called "The Ugly Barnacle": Once there was a very ugly barnacle. He was so ugly that everybody died. The End.

That's cool! And a great way to recycle computer stuff.

Let us know how the resin and other  ideas work out!

Wow! That's so cute! I've always wanted to make stuff out of a keyboard but I've never had an old one lying around.

Zorak: Are you really that stupid?
Brak: I dare you to say that again only this time say Brak I love you.
