We are completely smitten over this super cool project; DIY Felt Key Rings by Beacon Maker Natalie, Fern and Maple. These key rings compliment not only keys, but hand bags, wallets and lanyards. Personalize them, give away as party favors or gifts. My favorite is the typography style.

I recently lost my favorite key ring, argh! I love having a fun key ring cause it helps me with not losing my keys, making it more visible. Why not make a new one I thought (any excuse to play really), I am totally into fun 80’s colors at the moment, so my starting point was the color palette. I chose a selection of cute pastels colors, I also went with felt as they are nice and light as well as flexible…If I’m grabbing for them I a strange place (my keys end up in strange places) then I’m not going to cut myself on felt.
Next I took out sizzix big shot and started cutting some shapes, there are such cute dies so a lot of variety. I also grabbed some stickers and stuck them onto the felt cutting around them. Once I was done I had a good selection to work with. What I don’t use I can give to friends as gifts.
Let me show you how I pulled them together!  Here’s what you will need:
