I recently entered the altered keys swap over on Tee's blog The Altered Paper.
The idea was to alter 2 old keys (Minimum 2" long) and send out to two different partners.
We had a box full of over 50 keys which we had found whilst clearing out FIL's house last year. We never did find which locks they fitted but I kept them as I thought they would get used up in my crafting.
First thing to do was to make them shabby looking so I gave them a coat of black acrylic artists 'paint and then buffed them up with a spot of Inka Gold paste.
Lots of bling later and here they are finished. One pink, one blue made from lots of old broken beads,earings and brooches.
I have already shown in a previous post the boxes that I made for each one to go in.
Just to make it more fun I packaged them up identically and then randomly stuck the address lables on so even I don't know which of my partners has which one!!!!!
Hope they like them.
