I keep seeing things made out of old license plates, and I decided to try it out. I have 4 or 5 license plates. I chose the letters, numbers and symbols that I wanted to cut out. I wasn't sure what to cut the metal out with so I took a guess and used these scissors. It worked pretty well.
The edges were pretty sharp and so I used a file to smooth them out and round the corners.
Next, I drilled some holes in the metal so I could make a tag or keychain.
You can put the letters together to make a word, or just add an initial to enhance something.
