Key Fobs Craft DIY Homemade Wristlet

For Christmas, our family makes homemade gifts for each other.  We’ve had this tradition for a long time, so I’m constantly on the hunt for a DIY, homemade gift that does not totally suck.  Like most teenagers, mine have some high standards.  I originally made these cute little key fobs during Christmas a few weeks ago for the women in our family (my kids as well as sister-in-laws, nieces, and friends), but I just haven’t gotten around to writing about it.  Key fobs are so easy to make!  This entire batch of key fobs took me less than 15 minutes.
