Fabric Lanyard with the Cricut Maker

I have been to several events lately which have required wearing lanyards.  I was so envious of some of the gorgeous lanyards I have seen others wearing, so I decided to create my own.  How fun are these gorgeous fabrics as lanyards!

They are so easy to make, you can almost make one to match every event, outfit or personality.  They make great gifts for coworkers, friends and family.

I decided to add a little decorative touch to some of them by adding leather or suede.  What a difference that makes!
