Lanyard and Flashlight

Here's proof that I'll Mod Podge just about anything...

We all get these silly toss away gifts from work at some point, right?  I 'hosted' a meeting at work recently, which basically means I turned on the videoconferencing equipment, and was rewarded with some lanyards and little flashlights.



It's an nice thought but really, I'm not going to walk around work with this thing around my neck, and I'm certainly not going to wear them at home.
So, I transformed them with some fabric and thought they'd make a cute little add-in gift for my niece and nephew's birthday gifts this month.

I had to cover up all the logo's and print.  The last thing I want to be reminded of is work when I away from it all relaxing.  I just used some Mod Podge and glued some of the fabric onto the flashlights and then sewed some stips onto the lanyards.

Not rocket science but I think the kids will have fun with them~

This is a great idea for anyone who has to wear an ID Badge to work or school. The lanyards they give you are ahem, less than attractive.

It's also a great idea to prettyfy a lanyard for blog conferences!

Super cute idea!!! I think my daughter could use one of these when she leaves for college. I'm thinking in her school theme: Texas A&M! Now to find those mini flashlights! LOL
Thanks for the inspiration! I found you on Sugar Bee Crafts!

Very cool way to make something that's a throw away cool again. I don't know if your niece and nephew are still trick or treating ages but they'd make great lights to wear out in the dark.
