Tutorial Tuesday: Framed Key

Along with my Pinterest boards, I seem to have collected quite a few (okay, well maybe not a few, more like a whole long list that never ends) diy projects for myself, but sometimes I feel that I am lacking some of the appropriate toys tools.   My new love these days is this fabulous French script stamp, I couldn't wait to finally have my very own to craft with....

After meeting Mary over at Sweet Little Bluebird and admiring some of her diy projects, I was inspired  to put my lil French script stamp to work.   Mary recently created some framed artwork - when you have time, be sure to stop by and check out her fun projects and yummy recipes (Sweet Little Bluebird), she's so creative!

  • Muslin material
  • French script stamp
  • StazOn Black Ink (this ink is permanent, so be careful not to get it all over your house)
  • Key (found these neat antique looking keys at Michael's for $0.20, total score!)
  • Ribbon
  • Any old frame you have laying around
  • Scissors 

  • Remove the glass from your frame
  • Cut your material to match the size of your frame
  • Stamp your muslin material until you have enough to fill the frame
  • Add a piece of ribbon around your key to hold in place between the frame and back of frame
  • Secure the back of your picture frame
  • Sorry if any of this sounds confusing, it really is quite simple, but please feel free to email me with any questions :)
