Step 1: Plan 

Working with the stamp-able space on the key, you can use a dry erase marker - or even a pencil to plan the letter spacing BEFORE you start stamping.

Ideas: Names, affirmation words, sweetheart initials, anniversary date

2. Stamp!

Line up the metal stamp and give it a solid whack. Repeat.

Step 3: Contrast (Optional)

You can use a black permanent pen to ink over the letters - then polish with a dishtowel to add contrast to your lettering.

Step 4: Finish your Project

If you are making a keepsake treasure - you're done! Use a simple cord or ribbon to create a necklace or bookmark.
