DIY Easy Keychain Peel n Stick Instant Recipe Supplies from

Supplies list: (1) 1228A-1KIT or (1) 1228A-10KIT  Each kit contains:

To make your personalized keychain:

  1. Choose your art or photo and trim to fit the jewelry base. (approx 1″ wide x 1.5″ tall).
  2. Cover and protect the top (picture side) of your art with 801Z laminating film by cutting a piece that is a little larger than your art, peeling off the backing and sticking the 801Z onto the “good” side of your art.
  3. Trim off any extra 801Z. Cut a piece of 800P double-sided adhesive film to fit the jewelry base. Peel the backing off one side of the film and stick into the base.
  4. Peel the other side of the backing from the film. (An exacto blade or pin can be helpful to get it started.) Stick the back side of the prepared art onto the sticky film pressing firmly once the art is in place.

Voila! You are ready to put your base onto the key ring!

This is an easy craft to do with groups, classrooms, troops or meetings as there are no liquid sealers or drying times involved. Great for quick holiday gifts, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or Grandparent’s Day! Christmas stocking stuffers – use last year’s Christmas photo or this year’s school pictures or pictures from Facebook or Instagram posts.

Here are just a few ideas – you could also put in a phrase (Keep calm and ….) or scrapbook or origami paper, or a monogram. We’ve collected a page on Pinterest of printable monograms if you go that route – see eCrafty’s Printable Monograms board on Pinterest here.
