I actually made this last year. My sister got me a very cute, small but plain address box. So one day, I punched a hole, took out my scrapbooking stuff, dressed it up and converted into a keychain.




The silver ribbon that goes across the middle from the front to back is actually from an old birthday present; it effectively covers an ugly telephone icon on the front. The flower stickers are glow-in-the-dark and the A charm is one of the two that my sister and I bargained for at an exhibition a few years ago.

The shiny silver paper on the underside of the front and back covers (4th photo) is just more saved wrapping paper from past presents. The textured beige papers (2nd & 3rd photos)  are bits of sample wallpaper that my cousin and I collected in large amounts on a crazy whim from Office Depot.

So while it doesnt look like much, it has a lot of sentiment attached to it. Now you also know how much of a pack rat I am.  Tongue
