Make it and Love it Monday!

I made this key chain a while back...and thought I would share it here with you. It was very simple to make. I promise.
Step 1: Use a 1.5" punch or in my case a washi tape to cut a circle from a picture. 
Use some fabric paper. I used this one because it was dirt cheap at Two peas. :) BUT...I have my eyeballs on Amy Tan's new Chevron fabric sheets. I had the blue polka dot one in my stash too. Step 2: cut a flower from the fabric sheet and trace the flower onto the blue one as well
.Step 3: Using a 1" circle punch, punch a circle in the center of the POLKA DOT flower.
Step 4: Cut a piece of transparency sheet to cover the circle. (peel the paper from the fabric paper and place the transparency). *** make sure you add your picture in. Use some adhesive to keep in place.
Step 5: Cut a piece of ribbon.
Step 6: Peel the backside of the second fabric flower. Stick together. Fold your ribbon. Place inside (sandwiched in). Sew around the flower:
Here is the front:
Here is the backside:
It was pretty easy! I'm pretty sure that Amy Tan fabric paper is calling my name more and more. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
