DCC and Expo International Blog Hop

Take an old lanyard and turn it into a gorgeous lanyard with Expo International Inc. trims!
Many of us from Designer Crafts Connection are participating in a blog hop with some amazing inspiration.

I took this old lanyard.....

and turned it into this!

This was actually super easy to do! All I did was hot glue the trim over the original lanyard. For the keychain part, I removed it by cutting the stitching apart and then added the trim and hot glued it back together.

Check out the gorgeous beads and bling of this trim!

Now make sure to head over to the Designer Crafts Connection blog for the list of designers for more inspiration and to find out how you can win a treasure chest of trims from Expo International Inc.
