Easy-to-Make Wedding Momento

I saw this idea on Pinterest, and immediately remembered that I had kept the corks from my and hubby's wedding, just waiting to figure out the right project. Now I know what to do with at least 1 of them- make one of these anniversary keychains for me. 


Wine Cork
Screw eye
Small nail
Key ring
Color printer and paper

Step 1: Format a tag on your computer to 2" wide by .75" tall. Leave a .75" square on one side, as shown in the image above. This part will lay across the top of the cork. Then print and cut each piece.
Step 2: Take a piece of clear tape and laminate the front and back of each piece. Trim off any excess.
Step 3: Fold each piece .75" from the edge. Rest the folded piece across the top of the cork. Poke the screw eye into the laminated piece of paper and screw in to the cork. Attach the key ring to the screw eye.
Step 4: Flip the cork over and put a nail through the bead. Then press the nail into the bottom of the cork. It helps to press the nail against a table when pushing it into the bottom.
