Making a Keychain for Mom Using the Cricut



The focus for this month's Pinterest Challenge was all about Mother's Day and while I had a few gifts already purchased I really liked the idea of creating something cute and simple for my mom this year.



The purpose of the Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen!

I found a pin for making faux leather keychains on Pinterest but decided to also look around on the Cricut site and see what I could find.  

I found a free SVG file for making a MOM keychain that I decided to use.  I ordered some key rings, faux leather sheets on Amazon and as soon as they arrived I was ready to set to work.



I swapped out my cutting blade with the rotary cutter and cut out the MOM sign.  Using Tacky Glue I glued the two words together with the right sides of the fabric facing out. 




Seeing how it will look BEFORE gluing it together


I went digging through my jewelry making bin to find a pretty bead and I threaded that on before adding the keyring.  I think it's cute and I will definitely be making a few more keychains using the fabric and rings I have left over.  



My oldest is supposed to be getting his driver's license this year and I'm thinking of making him one with his name or perhaps a pick up truck on it.

  1. What a great gift. Best part is we don't even have to leave the house. A better gift is when you make it with love. Thanks for sharing.

  2. That looks great! I think your son will love that- a personalized keychain made by mom. The bead was a great idea.

  3. I love the way this came out, also it's cool to see the process, when I first saw it I wasn't sure how the back looked. Do you know if this would work with the Cricut Air or only with the maker?

    1. I would think that as long as the Cricut Air can cut fabrics it would work just fine.

  6. I love this idea for a Mother's Day gift. I think your son would love a personalize key chain when he gets his license too. My son was supposed to get his license this month, but the DMV is closed :-(

    1. Yeah, my son was supposed to be getting his learner's permit this week and then we have to wait 6 months for him to take his test but not it's all on hold.

    1. It's a lot of fun and so versatile. I'm just starting to really use it more and branch out on the projects I'm putting together.

  8. Great minds think alike - I made this exact key chain and was going to use it for my post this month. Only problem was that I couldn't find a key chain ring to put on it!

    1. Thanks! I just felt like it needed something more.. otherwise it wasn't sparkly enough for me.

  10. Oooh! I have a few rolls of the faux leather prints from Hobby Lobby, and was just wondering what I could do with them besides bows & bookmarks. I might have to try to design a picture frame key ring...

    1. That's what I was thinking. It seems like it would be pretty simple to customize.
