My Lanyard Maker review and GIVEAWAY


Remember when we reviewed My Image Bracelet Maker?  Well, they must have liked our review, because they offered Brianna her choice of either My Lanyard Maker or My Friendship Bracelet Maker for an additional review.  


She chose My Lanyard Maker, and was very excited when it arrived!  (Being the mean mommy that I am, I let her open the shipping box, but I made her wait until she was finished with her school work to get into it, so it wasn't until the next day that she started using it.)


"Look at all these colors!"  She thought from the box that there were only 6, so that was a pleasant surprise.  


There are two types of lanyard making material here, flat and round.  AND you can buy refill kits, so the fun goes on and on.  


She picked blue and green for her first lanyard.


Confession?  When she learned to make lanyards at camp, I got really tired of being asked to hold the end so she could make them.  So we were both happy that the lanyard maker eliminated the need for two people to be involved.  


The nifty loop makes it easy for her to make lanyards by herself.  


She also made a cool twirly one in pink and black.


There are downloadable instruction sheets on the website for you to make several different kinds of lanyard.  


My Lanyard Maker sells for $29.99, and is available at The Friendship Factory.  My readers can get 20% off using the "FASHBASH" coupon code!  Are you ready to win your own Lanyard Maker?  Enter below!  Please remember, if you have won a Greatly Blessed giveaway in the last 30 days to sit this one out so that others can experience the joy of winning, too.  Thanks!

  3. I love lanyards! I could never remember how to start them though. I never needed a second person to make them though, they just hung loose (friendship bracelets got taped or pinned to our pants.)

    For Christmas I am making pajama pants for my sister's kids and then embroidering shirts for all my nieces and nephews.

    1. I used to make my kids Christmas pajamas. I just don't get into the sewing room as much as I would like to now. And my embroidery machine hasn't seen action in a LONG time. Good for you!
