Not Your Average Keychain! The Card Holder Keyfob by Cassy Lain Totes {Review and Giveaway} **CLOSED**

43 Powered by RANDOM.ORG

Congrats to the winner, a.l.s.!

In college I always carried a leather key fob with my college logo on it. It was filled with my student ID, driver's license, cash (though not too often...), and other important cards. I never went anywhere without it (mainly because it was attached to my keys, so I really couldn't go anywhere without it), and often went places with only my keys because they carried everything important. After college I got rid of my keychain card holder, because, well, I have no idea why. I tell you this story because I have recently decided that another key chain like this would be very handy! However, this time I needed something a little lighter and more fashionable. I wanted to be able to carry around my super cute PaperRamma cards for my blog, my license, and debit card.
I found a great solution at Cassy Lain Totes with their adorable key fobs. They are made in a variety of designer fabrics (I chose a pink and green Amy Butler print...I know you're surprised...), clip right on to your keychain (or can be used on their own as your keychain), and have a generously sized pocket to stash your stuff! The key fobs are made with a dual layer of fabric (print on the outside and a coordinating solid on the inside) and are professionally sewn.
There is no stabilizer between the fabric which keeps the keychain light and a little more "adjustable" in my opinion. Not sure if "adjustable" is really the right word, but anyway, you can probably put more stuff in there than if it had a rigid shape, if you know what I mean. I love the snap closure (rather than a zipper) and the way it folds up to keep everything securely inside. When opened, you fold up the bottom flap, fold down the top flap over the pocket, then snap it closed. Everything stays right in place! I am currently using it to keep my business cards in. I keep 25 with me at all times and there is more than enough room to stash more cards, money, coupons, etc. if I needed to to.
If I just have to run in the store for something by myself, I slip in my ID and debit card and I'm ready to go.

I don't think I'll ever go without this little key fob again. It's so nice to have something so cute and useful attached to my keys all the time.
