Keys. We all use them, from elementary children to the oldest person in the world. In a perfect world, we wouldn’t need them, but the reality is that we do. What do we all do with those keys? (other than use them) We embellish them, with whatever it is we like. In fact, we end up with so much stuff on them that supposedly our ignition switch will break.
Today, I’d like to talk about key fobs. What is a key fob you say? It’s a key chain and several other similar items and devices. The word fob is believed to have originated from watch fobs, which existed as early as 1888. The fob refers to an ornament attached to a pocket-watch chain. Key chains, remote car starters, garage door openers, and key-less entry devices on hotel room doors are also called fobs, or key fobs.
Now that we know the definition, let me show you some tutorials on how to make them yourself. Funny, I am really interested in this because I just bought a whole box of key fob hardware, so let’s go!
I’ve never seen a blog post where key fobs were the subject, this research really opened my eyes to how many tutorials there are about key fobs. I hope you liked these are much as I did, they are all super cute and would make great gifts. It’s going to be hard to pick only 4 to make, looks like I need more key fob hardware!
Here’s a great deal on key fobs at Amazon: (I got mine at a big box store for 4.50 for 4- kicking myself)
