How Do You Make a Cricut Keychain?

Making your own keychain is a fun and easy way to show off your style and flair. With the help of a Cricut electronic cutting machine, you can create keychains in whatever shape, color and design you can imagine.

Cricut machines are capable of cutting through many different materials including paper, vinyl, fabric, leather, foam board and more. To create a keychain with your Cricut machine, you will need to follow these steps:

Step 1: Gather Supplies.
The supplies you need for making a keychain with your Cricut will depend on what type of material you plan to use. Generally speaking, you will need some type of material such as paper or vinyl, Cricut cutting mats, double-sided adhesive tape or glue dots and rings for attaching the finished product to a keychain.

Step 2: Design Your Keychain.

Using the software that came with your Cricut machine, design the shape of your keychain. You can either design it yourself using the software’s drawing tools or upload an image from an online library such as Cricut Access. Once you have designed the shape of your keychain (or imported an image), select the “Make It” button and choose the material you plan to use for cutting out your design.

Step 3: Prepare Your Material.

Once you have selected a material for cutting out your design, prepare it by placing it onto one of the double sided adhesive mats that come with your Cricut machine. Make sure that it is firmly adhered to the mat before feeding it into the machine.

Step 4: Cut Out Your Design.

Load the mat into your Cricut machine and press start to begin cutting out your design. The machine will automatically adjust its settings according to what type of material you are using; however, if there are any specific settings that need adjusting (such as blade depth), make sure to do so before pressing start. Once the cut is complete, remove the mat from the machine and peel away any excess material from around your design.

Step 5: Assemble The Keychain.

Once all pieces have been cut out correctly (or printed if using paper), use either double sided adhesive tape or glue dots (depending on what type of material was used) to attach any additional pieces such as charms or beads that may be needed for assembly. Finally, attach one end of a ring to each side of the completed keychain so that it can be hung on a set of keys or other item(s).

Making a custom keychain with a Cricut is an easy and creative way to add some personality to any item! With just a few simple steps and supplies, anyone can create their own unique custom keychains in no time at all!

Conclusion: Making a custom Cricut keychain is both easy and enjoyable! All you need is access to a Cricut electronic cutting machine along with some materials such as paper or vinyl and glue dots or double-sided adhesive tape for assembly. After designing your shape in the software provided by Cricut (or importing images from libraries like Cricut Access), feed it into your machine for cutting before assembling all pieces together with glue dots or double-sided adhesive tape before attaching one end of a ring on each side so that it can be hung on items like keys.
