Crafty Thursdays: Author Autographed & Photo Keychains

I have to admit that this is one the easy end of crafting but it is fun. We took Creatology photo keychains to mystery convention (Bouchercon) and got author autographs. It solves the problem of so many ebooks and nowhere to sign. 

Comment below about which author you'd like to sign a keychain for you to be entered to win the double-sided keychain above, signed by Laurie R. King. US Residents only. 

  • Creatology blank photo keychains (we got ours at Michaels)
  • Fun or pretty paper
  • A pen
  • An author

Step One: 
Cut out circles that fit inside the Creatology key chain. Extra points for pretty paper. You can use the inside circle as a pattern.

Step Two:
Find your favorite author and get them to sign the paper. Then slide the paper inside your keychain, clip it closed and you're done!

    1. I used a dull knife with a rounded edge. You could also try small scissors that are blunt edged.
