important dates keychain

For one of my hubby's Father's Day presents I made him a stamped metal key chain using a zinc washer from my local Home Depot. I decided to stamp the two digits from important years in our married lives; the year we were married, followed by each of our children's birth years.

I really like the industrial look of it and that it's sentimental without being too cutesy or girly. :) After stamping I colored in the indentations with a Sharpie, then wiped the front clean with a baby wipe. Super simple, but you can skip that step if you want to. You can see the difference between colored in and not in these two posts:  {pioneer trek bracelets} and {initial charm}.
