DIY key holder
Posted by CharlieLouisa86, 08 Dec, 2017
It's fair to say we've all lost our keys at one point or another in our lives. It's so easy to drop them down somewhere as soon as you get in and then forget where you put them, especially when you're in a hurry ! This is soon to be a thing of the past with this handy family key holder. Make yours as big, or as small, as you like (ours measured 27 x 12cm), depending on how many family members you have (or how long your family name is!). Be inspired by the beautiful hues from the new Capsule Elements Pigment collection from Papermania to create a happy welcome home for all.
1. Cut a piece of cardboard, two sheets of funky foam, a sheet of Elements Pigment paper and vellum to measure 27 x 12cm. Stick the paper and vellum on top of the funky foam pieces. Mark out the position for your houses at the bottom of the paper- mounted foam and cut out with a craft knife.
2. Create a hanger from several lengths of jute. Snip to size and group together. Adhere all your pieces together, with the two foam panels sandwiched in between the cardboard and paper. Before securing, insert the ends of your jute hanger between the two layers of foam, and stick with a hot glue gun.
3. Decorate four Create Christmas wooden house shapes with different shades of Artiste paint. Once dry, stamp with
clear embossing ink and heat emboss with clear powder. Use a screw hole punch to create a hole at the base of each one, to fix your key rings through. Slot into the gaps.
4. Die cut your family name from cardstock and funky foam, and heat emboss the cardstock letters copper. Mount
onto the foam and fix to the sign. Die cut a handful of hearts, using the nesting mini dies, and add texture with Anita’s 3D Clear Gloss. Stick above the houses to finish.
