Senior Year Keychain
Hello everyone! It's time for another challenge at Celebrate The Occasion! This week the challenge is "Back To School".
I created this keychain for my son who will be a Senior this year (this is SO unbelievable! My baby is almost done with High School!) He LOVES football and the season has just started so that's what I used as my inspiration for this project.
I started by cutting a solid football at 2.5 inches from Car Decals out of a recycled cereal box to give it some sturdiness. I then cut the football, front and back and the layers for the front. The font and font shadow was cut from Robots that I welded together in my Gypsy. Once it was all glued on I added some white gel pen highlights to the letters. Then I ran it through the laminator on my Your Story. I was kind of disappointed how it wrinkled and didn't all laminate correctly. So I ran it through twice. My only thinking for this is that it was too thick. To finish I punched the hole and added a keychain ring. Thank goodness for the Crop-A-Dile because it was really thick!
I hope you all enjoyed my project and will play along this week. I can't wait to see what you'll create! Have a great day!
P.S. He is ACTUALLY using it too! He made a smart comment about my laminating skills and then put it on his keychain! :) This makes me happy because I know that he actually liked it! LOL!
