These keyrings are made from flattened bottle caps which hold you photo or an image, covered with a protective self-adhesive clear epoxy sticker. They are quite simple to make.
You can use your photographs or print out images with your name or a short message.
The flattened bottle tops and stickers can be purchased here via my Folksy shop. (If you do not have a drill, I can pre-drill the bottle caps for you on request)
Here are the instructions:
You will need a flattened bottle top and a clear epoxy sticker (sold in my Folksy shop), small clip, jump ring or a strong chain link to attach the bottle top to the clip, photo or a printed image, glue, scissors, pliers, small drill, ruler
All you have to do now is to stick the self-adhesive sticker on the top of your image to protect it. Make sure you do not touch the sticky side of the sticker with your fingers as this would leave finger marks. Press firmly onto the photo and your personalised keyring is done!
If you are feeling more adventurous, you can attach a small chain between the clip and the bottle top. You can then attach various beads and charms to the chain to create a personalised charm keyring. Here are some examples:
