This is a message in a bottle, on a keyring! You can make one for youself or for your friends!
I saw this message in a bottle and thought it was cute, but it involved stamping metal, so I made my own! You could also make this into a necklace!

    Using the wire cutters, cut the floral wire about 1” to 1½” long.

    Taking the sharper edge of the floral wire, stick it through the cork. (You can trim the floral wire if you feel it’s too long, but you’ll want at least half an inch sticking out.) Then, take the needle nose pliers, and twist the underside of the cork. (This ensures that the floral wire won’t slip out. Twist the top part of the cork as well. It should look like this (or similar).

    Now, I attached three jump rings to the floral wire.

    Take the piece of paper and write what you’d like on it. Make sure it will fit in the vial that you’re using. Then roll it up. I used a tiny little rubber hair tie to hold it closed.

I found them at a craft store called Michaels around where I live, but I think I saw a message in a bottle kit for kids in a Shopko.
