Lomography Film Canister Keychain


Actually its pretty easy to make the film canister keychain. Learn it quick and feel proud about it!

A brilliant idea sparked while looking at the beautiful Lomography film canister, to turn it into a key chain. I’m in love with it. My colleague expressed interest in buying it; asking me where do I get it from. I replied proudly that Its hand made by myself and got praised for my handicraft, even was requested to put it up for sale.

Actually its all very simple. Learn it and feel proud of yourself!

Tools and materials: Drill, key chain, film canister (from photo lab or those accidentally exposed)

Steps to follow
1: Drill a hole in the protruding end of the film canister
2: Inset the key chain!

Who says film is dead? Lomography’s got its very own emulsions to keep the fire burning! Visit the "Shop:http://shop.lomography.com/films/lomography-film and see which Lomography film is right for you.

    I have some canisters turned into keychains and bag charms too! I use ball chains instead. I love making them!
