How to make:

1. Using one of your foam circles. trace a circle onto the cardboard and cut out. Cut the cardboard circle a little smaller that the foam circle, so cut within the lines you traced rather than on the lines.

2.Poke a hole near the middle of the cardboard circle with a scissors or a pen.

3. Cut a piece of jewelry cord about 12 inches long

4.Thread the cord through the hole in the circle.

5. Line up the open ends of the cord and loosely tie know with the key chain or backpack clip in the knot.
