Handmade Mother's day heart keyring gift and gift box

Here is another piece from my Mother's day craft class I taught last week.
This is a smaller designed gift box and felt heart shaped key ring.

I topped my gift box with a paper rose which can be made simply by cutting a circle out of matching paper and then cutting a spiral to the centre. You then wind up the spiral and stick it when your happy with the shape.

I also used a scrap of the paper to make a matching gift tag using a punch and an eyelet. I think it really finished it off well.

To make a folded paper box you can find the instructions here.

To make the keyring:

  • Cut two heart shapes from red felt.
  • sew a smaller heart shape using chain stitch in the middle. You can read a tutorial of how to do chain stitch here.
  • Then sew seed beads around the chain stitched heart. I used alternate red colours.
  • Then cut a loop of red ribbon and pin this inside the two heart shapes at the top.
  • Blanket stitch around the hearts to secure. You can read a tutorial of how to do blanket stitch here.
