The DIY craft challenge can be tried by anyone, but this is mostly applicable to teachers, especially those teachers, of us that have a million of ideas running through their heads and does not know what to begin and when to start it. As a teacher, they need look presentable and awesome all the time for their students and co-teachers, and a very good DIY lanyard is included in their daily dress code. The lanyard should not only carry their entry ID badge, but it must also able to hold their keys. Teachers have numerous keys with them, for their locker, for their car (if they have), and for their assigned room.

Sometimes, teachers are dealing with students that are careless, they will either hold you with dirty hands from projects or they can accidentally spill something on you when working on something required. These are incidents that teachers cannot control and normally the lanyards available in the bookstore are usually white, yellow or cream. These colors are all light which can easily take on dirt and will have a long and hard time removing it, and so, it’s time to change and take the power of the DIY challenge. If you are this teacher that has the talent, patience and perseverance to work on something you like, a colorful or dark colored lanyard is your best option.

What to do when making DIY ribbon lanyards:

1. Search for the colored ribbon that you love. There are numerous ribbons to choose from and so you can pick some of your favorite colors from the shelves of ribbon and the badge clip. There are silky thin ribbons and thicker grained ribbons for your preference.

2. Steam the ridge to weld it all together and cut the strips of steam a ridge similar to the ribbon and ironed it together to create a double sided and make it super thick.

3. To make the double sided ribbon lanyards is to lay the ribbon right, and lay a ribbon on the upper of the other. So, you are not actually making a circle, because you are making an exclamation point.
