Shabby chic Victorian Keychain mini


 Here's a new little keychain mini I made for a swap this week. I made it with a brand new die I just had made. Originally I had the die made to use the shape as tags....but I love it as a mini too! It measures about 4 3/8 by 3 inches, but I was still able to add a lot of goodies and spaces for pics and journaling!
The Papers are from Fab Scraps Heritage collection.


The cover has a pretty vinatge image cut from a collage sheet that is available in my Zibbet shop. The frame is a little chipboard piece that I inked up with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink. i also inked up all the pages and elements with the same ink. Prima flowers were used the bottom corner (layered on top of crinkled seam binding also available in my shop) a couple of butterflies and a little bling finish up the cover. The album is bound with a simple biner ring. The copper butterfly chardm is attached to some seam binding with a little garment pin.








                                     
On this page I used some plastic trim as kind of a pocket to hold the little vintage image in. A picture or journalling can be added to the back of the image....also a picture can be glued to thpage and then several pictures can be tucked behind the platic. I decoarted the bottom with some Prima flowers and a little beaded spray. On the opposite page a glued one of my little note cards to the page and decorated it with a sweet little girl image. Pictures and journalling can be added to the inside of the notecard.






 I used a matted little vintage image as a pocket to hold these little tags....a picture can be glued to the actual page and a few more can be tucked in the pocket. I stamped the other page and added a real metal clock hand and some Prima Hydrangeas.

 The ribbon this page is made from torn material. I stamped it with a stamp from Pink Paislee's Londan Market set. I used my favorite round journal spot stamp on this little oval tag and tied it with some organza ribbon. The other page has a little fence pocket that was inked with vintage photo and decorated with a Prima Hydrangea. I tucked a pretty little violets image behind it.
