Felt flower key chains tutorial

Hello, and welcome to another week. Today I'm showing you a bunch of felt flower key chains I made for my kid's teachers.

Every year I search for some quick and easy gifts that can be "mass produced" - my son is now in 5th grade and has a ton of teachers. And while my daughter only has two for now, when you add the ballet teacher, the swimming coach... - yes, well, lots of people to get gifts for.

So this year we settled on key chains. Flower shaped for the female teachers, and with their initials for the male teachers. Today I'm going to show you how we made the felt flower key chains, and I'll post about the other ones later.

Luckily I had in my crafts closet everything we needed (I'm destashing this year, remember?).

To make the process faster, we used the Sizzix to cut the flower shapes. Basically you need: flower shapes cut from the same template (you can embellish the front of one of them - we used smaller flowers, hearts and buttons), a bit of ribbon, a key chain ring and fabric glue.

To make the key chains, fold the ribbon in half with the key chain ring in place and glue it to the back of one of the main flowers.

Then spread glue over the rest of the flower and place the other flower shape on top (with the ribbon sandwiched in between), and your key chain is finished:

Here's part of the set we made (a few key chains were completed later and missed the photo shoot...):

And as you can see, we varied the embellishments a bit:

These felt flower key chains are a great (and quick) homemade gift - totally no-sew and the kids can easily help!

Happy Monday,
