Chapstick holder keychain tutorial

I don’t know about you but I have chapstick everywhere! I like to have these chapstick holder keychains on my bags, purses, and lanyards. They also make great gifts and even better they are really quick to make. I hope you make them soon and you enjoy them as much as I have!

Supplies for your chapstick holder keychain:

  • Sewing machine
  • Coordinating thread
  • 1 1/2″ wide ribbon (you will need 9″ to make one)
  • 1 1/2″ swivel/snap hook
  • scissors 
  • clips/pins
  • chapstick 🙂

1. Cut a 9″ long piece of ribbon.

2. Fold over (1) of the raw edges 1/2″ and sew.

3. Insert the raw edge into the swivel hook and fold over so that the wrong sides of the ribbon are facing when you fold it over. Fold the raw edge 1/2″ and then fold it another 2″. 

4. Fold the sewn edge over the folds you just created and clip it into place.

5. Sew using a 1/8″ seam allowance on both edges to secure. 

6. Sew along the edge of the swivel hook on the top to finish. 

7. Add your chapstick and attach your chapstick holder keychain to your backpack, purse, or lanyard!

There you have it! They are so cute and fun to make! If you have a child who loves to sew, check out one of Elevation Handmade’s courses, they are fun and skill-building and made for crafty kids!

Happy crafting,
