Stamped Washers

This weekend I picked up a box of washers to stamp for fun/functional projects! Gotta love walking into Ace and asking the guy for washers that were lighter weight then the others. He gave me this look until I said "obviously I'm not building anything- its for crafts"
I thought this would be perfect for my spare key! (Except when I realized my parents also have a 2000 Honda - whoops) But it'd be a great project for those of you who need a functional way to organize!
I stamped a few random ones as well- I keep one on my keychain of course!

I stamped the usual words generic words- but some how "mischief managed" creeped in there. Apparently my harry potter side snuck out on that one!

Anywho- if you're looking for a fun way to organize, personalize a key chain, or a simple washer necklace- I'm now personalizing sets of 4 washers for $1 on etsy!

Oh and for those of you keeping an update on my smooshed finger (from yesterdays car door incident) so far it looks like I wont have to amputate the entire hand! My typing is improving even with using only two fingers to type on my right hand (I already dont use my pinky- I'm pretty sure I broke it as a kid, and cant type with it- so that leaves just two fingers after my accident to type) And my handwriting was already awful, and couldnt get much worse.

I love this idea! Maybe add an asterisk or something to make your 2000 Honda different! Thanks for sharing!

What did you use to stamp these?

Kitty

Just your basic metal stamping set- I use one like this http://www.amazon.com/Piece-Letter-Number-Punch-Stamping/dp/B002TND0LW/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1308669954&sr=8-10

Hi! thanks for sharing, I'm visiting from Reasons to skip. You can also pick up the set at harbor freight tools. They're around $6 or so. You can catch a tutorial by visiting my blog @ www.shelstring.com

Great idea! I need to get one of those sets. I'd like to make the garden markers on old silverware too.

This is awesome! I bought a metal stamp kit but haven't tried it yet. I am going to make these for the 6 cars we own right now. (4 drivers and 2 extras!) It will make life so much easier. Thanks for this great idea!!!
