Club Scrap "Constellations" Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog today and the ClubScrap Blog Hop!!  So glad to have you here.  Well here in Montana, we have been bombared with snow and lots of cold cold COLD weather.  The one good thing about bad weather, keeps me indoors and what better to do than fire up the heater in my scrapshack and get to work.  Another thing about this time of year, the rest of the family is up at ski lessons, giving me an entire day of "me" crafting time - gotta love that!!  This month I was inspired by the two tags included in the Constellations kit along with a star cutout shape from a previous kit.

Steampunk Keyrings

Patterned paper (Clubscrap Constellations kit)
Ink pads
Modge Podge
Glossy accents
Embellishments (Charms, gems, etc)
Key Ring and Clasp
Start with a matboard tag/cutout.  Apply modge podge to tag and adhere to pattern cardstock (Clubscrap).  Let dry.  

Trim cardstock to shape of tag.  

Repeat with other side of tag. Ink edges of tag.
Punch holes into tag/cutout for attaching key ring or hang other jump rings with embellishments from the final project. 

Stamp the sentiments that will be used on one side of the tags, onto a scrap piece of cardstock.  Trim out to fit project size and ink edges. 
Apply glossy accents over the entire area on one side of the tag. 
Now dig out all your fun charms and steampunkish goodies.
Carefully add charms, embellishments, and sentiments into the glossy accents.  Sit the project aside to dry, this will take a long time.

Once side one is completely dry, repeat with other side of tag.  You may need to put shims under tag to ensure tag lays flat while drying, check on it occasionally to make sure charms don't slide into the wrong spots.
Once project is completely dry, you can finish project by adding eyelets, key rings, jump rings with charms, etc.
Here is the final versions of each of the three key rings, front and back.
