Cute Keychains

Here is a lovely little project from Jessica Jone's site How About Orange. This makes me think about what else you could try with these little chips. Possibly making your own custom chess pieces, or as tags for your wine glasses when you have a party. Hmmmm.....what else......

I found wooden disks for ten cents at a craft store and decided to see how well Sharpies would write on them. The markers bled a bit, but by varying how hard I pressed, I could control the bleed somewhat. Applying the lighter colors before sketching any black lines works best, or else the black will bleed like a victim on CSI. Applying a light coat of spray acrylic before drawing also stops future bleeding, but it will turn the wood a couple shades darker.
