    Thanks to the Diser who originally posted this idea - they were SOOOOO easy to make and provided a great use for all of those lanyards that we've collected over the years! I'm so happy to recycle them as I had no idea what I was going to do with them otherwise.

    Each lanyard makes 4, 6" wristlets if you cut it correctly. I used a seam ripper to salvage an extra inch or two at the ends. (I cut my strips 12" long.) Stick webbing on the back with double-sided, no-sew, no-iron fabric tape. Then fold in half and clip together with the key fob hardware!

    20 of 'em done in an hour!!!! Will be using this idea in all of my FE gifts in the future!

    Thanks again!:worship:

    You are welcome. I am so glad more people are making these. One of my goals in life is for people to REUSE items. We throw away way too much! Just a note the original black and red lanyards that don't have club level are shorter than the newer ones. The max you can get from those is three. But the are awesome because they will work for any level:)

    Those look awesome! What a great way to reuse them. I don't have any CC lanyards but I might keep my eye out for just regular Disney themed ones and give it a try.

    Where do you get that webbing and double-sided, no sew, no iron fabric tape? I am a complete idiot when it comes to crafting! :rotfl:

    I would try Joann's, if you have one locally.

    I got both the webbing and the key fob hardware from Amazon.com. I get free shipping there, so the price beats eBay. But you can get them on Etsy.com or on eBay.com too.

    The seam tape (fabric tape) is available from Joann's or Michael's. One role at Michael's is enough for 20 wristlets and costs $3.99 regular price - so with the 50% coupon, it's pretty good. You can also use the iron-on kind, which may be cheaper, but this was super easy.

    Webbing (http://www.amazon.com/Inch-Yards-Bla...s=poly+webbing).

    Key fob hardware (http://www.amazon.com/100-1-Chain-Wr...y+fob+hardware).

    Hi,
    I couldn't get the Amazon links to work. May I have the details to search on Amazon? For example, what is the size of the key fobs: 1 inch, 1 1/2 inch? What is the vendor?
    Many thanks

    You need 1 inch key fob hardware. I did a search and for a lot of 50 amazon is about $4 less than eBay if you get free shipping with amazon. eBay price includes shipping. I am not sure if amazon has smaller lots but eBay does and the person I ordered from does free shipping. I will probably go with amazon next time around:) thanks for sharing that tip princessMommy

    Sorry about that! :confused3

    Just search key fob hardware and Polypro webbing on Amazon. It's in the arts and craft section.
