DIY Leather Swiss Army Knife Key Ring Tutorial and Template from Fashionrolla. I would make and carry this - I have the leather punch (find cheaply at a hardware store). This would also be a good DIY gift for men. It’s going on my “manly gifts” tag -DIY gifts for men here.

DIY Plastic Animal Rings Two Ways Tutorial from Fashionrolla here. If you don’t have a ring blank Fashionrolla has a tutorial for plastic or leather/pleather bases. I like plastic toy DIYs because if you make a mistake you’re not out a lot of money. For pages more of plastic toy DIYs go here.

DIY Leather Studded Bracelet. Gorgeous jewelry on this site. Practical? May be not, but I love the colors.

They are pretty cheap and come in handy for lots of other things.
