kraft-tex Key Fob

TO MAKE A STRAP FOB:
1.Decorate a strip of kraft•tex as desired: use decorative tape, fabric strips, lace, paint, or stamps; distress; or add die-cut shapes—the options are endless!
2.Fold the strip in half and trim to a straight edge. Using pliers and following the manufacturer’s instructions, attach the key fob hardware.
TO MAKE A TASSEL FOB:
1. Start with a piece of kraft•tex 31/2˝ × 9˝. Score or draw a line 1/2˝ from the top of a long edge.
2. Create a fringe by making cuts 1/4˝ apart and up to the 1/2˝ line along the entire length of the strip.
3. Fold a 1/4˝ × 11/2˝ kraft•tex strip in half, thread it through a round key ring, and sew it to the top 1/2˝ section at an end of the 9˝ strip.
4. Place a piece of double-sided tape along the top 1/2˝ of the 9˝ strip. Beginning with the key ring end, roll the strip firmly. When you get to the end, secure with additional glue or tape and, if desired, wrap with another strip of kraft•tex, decorative tape, or ribbon.
