I’ll admit it – I’m not a fan of the smart key. That’s because I’m probably one of the few people who manages to lose their keys in their running car as they are driving right down the street for a coffee.

But seriously, there is NO place for them! I frequently put them in the cup holder, but then sometimes I need both cupholders. And if they slide into my lap, there’s no telling where they’re going to end up.

I know it’s crazy, but sometimes I miss the into-the-ignition type keys. I guess I’m an “old fashioned” type of person.

One thing stays consistent whether you have a smart key or a standard key: you need a keyring. I have three cars (I’m a bit of an enthusiast!) so I have a lot of keys. And therefore, a lot of keychains. And I love making my own DIY keychains.

There’s another reason to learn how to make keychains . . . they make great gifts and they are awesome for selling at craft fairs.

Beginning crafters can make them, so if you want to get started selling your projects, these ideas are a great place to start.
