Supplies & Tools

- Fine Sharpie (pick a shade close to the backside of your leather)
Cut a strip of leather ½” x 3” piece of leather. Fold it in half around the key ring and super glue the strips together. Use a binder clip to hold the piece together until they dry. While you're securing piece dries cut another piece of leather 4” x 10”. On the backside measure ¾” down, this is your stopping line, for when you begin to cut the strips. Next measure ¼” strips going the length of the leather, mark with your sharpie. Once you’ve made your mark, cut the strips leaving your ¾” at the top. Don’t worry if your lines are perfectly uniform, little imperfections add a personal touch. Once you’ve finished cutting, glue your unfringed strip and begin to roll around your leather attached to the key ring. If you want to add a cleaner look to the secured end attached two upholstery nails with a small dab of glue. To hold while drying wrap rubber bands around top.
