One of my favorite things to do in the summertime is to invite my friends over to make some craft projects together. It’s a fun way to get together and talk the day away while we make something creative. It’s also a really great way to get more creative ideas because each one of us adds our own spin to our projects. When we got together last time, I showed my friends this great idea for Cutting Leather With The Cricut Maker – DIY Keychain. It was lots of fun and is the ideal summer project! Use different colors of spray paint and vinyl and you can get a variety of different looks. We found this super cute quote and the little popsicle shape from the Makers Gonna Learn membership website, a perfect resource for any die cutting lover!

Popsicle Keychain - Teen Summer Craft
  • Cricut Maker
  • Brown Faux Leather Sheet
  • Mint Green Cricut Vinyl
  • Scissors
  • Yellow Spray Paint
  • Transfer Paper
  • Hot Glue Gun
  1. Measure your leather and size how big you’d like your keychain to be.
  2. Once you sized it in Cricut Design Space load the machine and let it do the work!
  3. While it’s cutting, get your scissors and cut a little strip of the extra faux leather you have. This is going to be the loop for the keychain!
  4. Once your popsicle is cut remove the access and load the machine with your mint green Vinyl. Let it cut.
  5. Go outside with your cut popsicle shape and apply a layer of yellow spray paint. Allow it to dry completely.
  6. Unload the machine and weed the excess vinyl and apply transfer tape to the quote.
  7. Hand-cut a vinyl piece to be the stick of the popsicle.
  8. Once the leather has dried carefully adhere the vinyl pieces and remove the transfer paper.
  9. Flip the Popsicle over and hot glue that small piece of leather you cut into a loop, then hot glue it onto the corner of the top of your popsicle.
  10. Add it to your keyring and enjoy!
