Personalized Divot Repair Key Chain

Hi all, it's Wednesday and you know what that means?  I am here to show you another project I made over at Amazing Crafting Products.  Wednesdays have been AMAZING!!!

As some of you know my son is an avid golfer. If he could, he'd be on the golf course every day. It doesn't help that we live in subzero temperatures 6 months out of the year and he can see the golf course from our house. :)

He celebrated his 14th birthday in January, so I thought I'd make him a personalized keychain for his locker at the clubhouse.

I started out with a "divot fixing tool" (I'm sure there is a proper name for it, but I haven't a clue) that he got when he played at a tournament that was sponsored by one of the hospitals here in town.

It's made out of metal and has this cool dome shape with the hospitals logo on it. Instantly I knew this could be personalized. (whenever I make a mold of something and have excess I try to use as much of the Amazing Mold Putty as possible to keep from wasting it, therefore you see other shapes, but they were NOT used for this tutorial.)

I am so in love with the Amazing Clear Cast Resin,
so I decided on a glass looking keychain.

After about 24 hours the Amazing Clear Cast Resin has set up and I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch the hole nice and clean. Do you see how cloudy the "divot fixing tool" looks? Well just wait and watch the magic happen.

I then punched a piece of scrapbook paper (in his favorite color) and wrote "Austyn's" name on it. All of my kids have unique spelling of their names so it's very hard to find something personalized for them.

Thank goodness I can craft. LOL!

Using more of the clear cast I adhered the punched circle to the BACK of the keychain so the name shows through the front and sealed it. This also helps to make that cloudy look go away. It doesn't take that long to dry when you use moderate amounts of the it.

I added a ball chain to the "divot fixing tool" and his key and he's ready to go to the clubhouse... 
in another couple of months or so...

I hope you've enjoyed my personalized gift for my son.

If you personalized something, what would it be?

As always, have a great day and God Bless.
