lanyards for school IDs

My son Anthony just started high school this year.  Aside from his excitement over the school store, the other thing  he asked for right away was a lanyard for his ID like his brother Andrew.  I had painted Andrew a lanyard last year so it looked like another lanyard was in the works.

Anthony LOVES all things Star Wars.  So much so that when he found out I was making it for him we sat down together to look at potential ideas online.  He had several definite opinions on what he wanted.  After a bit I penciled it out with chalk and then went into my craft room to paint.

Since Star Wars is pretty much outer space I decided to go with a black strap and paint details.  Good and bad because it took several layers to get it as bright at I wanted.  Here is the finished product along side Andrew's.  His is mainly the logo on one side and his name on the other although there is a pretty good death star on the back that unfortunately you cant see.  Ill have to post a different pic later.

 Libby is already trying to decide what she wants for next year lol!

I will say that if anyone does read my blog (huge LOL here) and would like something painted for their teens ID let me know and Ill give it a try.
