No instructable but I can walk you through my process (there may be a better way). I used free software, I believe Google sketch up

- create a rectangle at origin.
- Find an image of your state on google search
- apply that image as the texture to the rectangle
- trace the image with freehand or spline
- extrude the shape up
- delete the original rectangle
- scale to appropriate size
- add a hole ( ~1/4" CIA.)
-print

Let me know if that helps, I'm answering from a phone so my description was a little brief.
Is there an instructable? Id like to make one for Idaho.
How long does this take to print?

Instructions

- If you are using the STL file, scale up in ReplicatorG somewhere between 2 and 2.6 depending on how much extra bulk you want to add to your keys
- The .gcode file is already scaled to 2, it is on the small end since I don't have much on my keychain (1 5/8" long, 1" wide)
