Santa's Magic Key

So for today's design team project I'm once again working with the wonderful Bo Bunny Sleigh Ride collection... 
So let's get one with the instructions...
First of all, I got myself one of these stunning Kaisercraft wooden keys, only £2.29 @ Craftmania! 
And used it to draw around on the reverse of my Bo Bunny Sleigh Ride sheet - 
Once drawn around, I simply cut 2 out (1 for each side) 
And then glued them on... 
Now the width of the key... I didn't want to paint the base of the key, and felt the wooden essence of the key would be a shame to cover completely, but didn't want as much as if I just left it.. So ribbon was the answer, a quick and easy way to get in to all the nooks and crannys of the key without hours of faffing, so I just wrapped double sided tape around the key, and then placed ribbon on top... 
Now at this stage I decided the edges of my paper looked a little too freshly cut, and the white was bugging me, so decided to do what I should have done before sticking them on... Distress the edges! 
Chipped sapphire seemed the best idea! 
Now the base of the project was complete it seemed time to add on some of our FANTATSIC dies we get from Craftmania -(thanks to Jones Crafts!) 

The dies are all currently available from Crafttmania 
Large pointsettia - £23.49
Small pointsettia - £10.99
Trio of tags - £23.49
Snowflakes - £20.99
Heart swirl -£17.49

I cut all of this sheet from Kraft card and then again from sleigh ride - Tranquil 
Then layered them as I felt best, adding glitter glue to the poinsettias and swirls, now the swirls are a neat trick... I love this die as it is... But with a few snips it makes a great value swirl die! 
Then all I did was glue gun on all of my die cuts and write on my Christmas tag, I also glued a piece of white card to the back of the "Merry" on my tag so it hopefully 'pops' a little more and added a couple of pearls... Job done! A nice easy Christmas decoration you could bring out year after year!
