Stamped Keychain for Dad

Posted by Morena Hockley

Special days like father's day are the perfect occassions for handmade gifts. Guys can be hard to craft for, but many products you may already have in your craft stash can be adapted to use for men's gifts. Vintaj blanks are beautiful for necklaces, but they can also be used for cool, masculine key chains, like this one.

  • Supplies:
  • Vintaj Blanks
  • Stamping Block
  • Metal Stamps
  • Stamping Tape
  • Vintaj Patina
  • Keychain

Use the tape to determine letter placement. Stamp "Dad" on the first line, followed by "Est XXXX" and insert the year that his first child was born. You can embellish the blank with symbols, too. I used a fun star shaped stamp from ImpressArt.

Add Vintaj Patina to the lettering, and wipe off the excess. The patina will stay in the stamped letters but will come off the rest of the blank. Polish the blank to remove excess patina and fingerprints. (I like using the polishing cloth I ordered from Blitsy).

Attach the blank to a keychain. Open the jump ring, attach it to the blank, and close the jump ring.

What dad wouldn't love this personalized key chain gift? With all the different blanks available you could make this in any color or size for the guys in your life. Have fun crafting and creating!
