Riveting Handmade Keychains
Though we don’t work with leather too often, there are so many possibilities when crafting with this material. Even just with leather scraps! You only need a few small pieces to create to create some leather keychains for yourself. And they make great gifts, too. If you’re feeling creative, you can even take it one step further by doing your own custom stamping.
Skill level: Beginner
Crafting tips: There are two sizes included in the template, which you can use to create the overlapping leather keychains. When you’re picking out your leather, we recommend getting a thicker material because it is better for stamping. With thinner leathers, the stamps often just leave an impression rather than a real engraving. You can find a stamping kit online, like this one from Amazon.

- Trace the template at the bottom of the post onto leather using mechanical pencil.
- Cut the leather using an x-acto and ruler. A utility knife also works great here.
