Leather Lanyard

I'm certain you can purchase all of these items at your local craft store.

First, cut your leather to desired width & length. 

Loop it through the lobster clasp.

Bring the bottom of your leather strap to the top.

Using your leather punch, puncture through all three layers of leather.

Place your crystal rivet through all three holes.

Place the back of the rivet.

 Attach the back of the rivet using the rivet setter.

Secure in place with a hammer.

Add your own personal touch with any sort of charm.  There are a million cool things out there!

  Another leather project...
 I have more great leather ideas in mind... Can't wait to share them with you!  Just remember to check back often;) 

Have fun creating your own.
The possibility's are endless... cell phone lanyard perhaps?!

Turn "can do" into "can did!"
