Make a beautiful two sided vinyl mermaid keychain with this easy to follow tutorial. This is a sponsored post with StyleTech Craft vinyl, but all ideas and opinions are my own.
My daughter and I saw the live action version of The Little Mermaid on opening night, and I guess I’ve had mermaids on the brain ever since then!
I absolutely love the variety of vinyl finishes and patterns that StyleTech Craft offers. I immediately reached for the mirror-like vinyls (since they remind me of water). I also finally got to use this gorgeous scalloped glitter vinyl that is perfect for mermaid themed projects!
Vinyl Mermaid Keychain Supplies Used
- StyleTech Craft Metalized Vinyl Sheets
- Acrylic Keychain Blanks with Tassel
- Make a Splash Mermaid Tail SVG File (free)
- Silhouette Cutting Machine
- Transfer Tape
- Vinyl Weeding Tools
I started by making 1.9 inch circles in my Silhouette Design Studio. I separated the elements in the SVG file and welded one of the waves to the top of the circle. Then I added and resized the design elements to fit (see the screenshot above). Once I was happy with the way everything looked I separated the elements and cut them out.
After weeding the different elements, I used transfer tape to add the pieces to the keychain blank. You can see the step by step process of transferring each element, working from the back to the front, in this 45 second video.
Photos really don’t do this vinyl justice, so I hope you’ll check out the video link above to see how shiny and stunning the vinyl is! These beautiful keychains are very easy to make, so you could make a whole set to use as party favors or gifts for friends!
Have fun crafting and creating ocean and mermaid themed items with StyleTech Craft vinyl!
