Make a Keyring using Epoxy Stickers

Make a Keyring using Epoxy Stickers 

A very easy project that makes perfect quick presents. 
 
You will need:
 
- Pendant blanks
- Epoxy stickers to fit
- Images
- Keyring fittings
- Glue
 
First, pick your image according to the size of the sticker you want to use.  Here we used round 1 inch stickers.


Once you are happy with your image, peel back the protective sheet on the top and the sticker sheet on the bottom of the sticker and apply your sticky resin dome to your image, pressing well so that every little bit of the paper is touching the epoxy.


Then cut around it with sharp scissors to the shape of the sticker.


Finally, if your paper is very thin, we recommend you coat the back of it with a sealant, here we used ModPodge which is a sealant and a glue in one,


And finally we used this also to glue the image into the keyring bezel.


Press it in well as you want all the edges to sit insize the bezel and be level.  Some glue may come out from the sides but with most glues you can just wipe away the excess (ModPodge is especially forgiving here).

 

Once it is pressed down and secured you can wipe the resin sticker with a damp cloth and buff gently to a shine.  Attach the pendant to the keyring fittings ...and that's all there is to it!  A beautiful handmade keyring made in about two minutes!  Of course you have to let the glue dry, but you are free to admire your work to your hearts' content straight away!!
