While dreaming of Paris earlier today, I wondered what it would be like to be a guest at a rustic, charming hotel there. Would they have those dopey electric card keys or an actual metal key. Since I doubt I'll find out any time soon, I made this little guest room key:
I love, love, love this image from the Graphics Fairy (in fact, I used it on a pair of new items in my Etsy shop too).
After I printed out my image, I mod podged it to the front of a coffee tag. Then I added the random green rhinestones and tied the key on with some tea-stained seam binding. Flip the back and it reads invite - French for guest. I had to handwrite the accent mark which is a little sloppy.
I think it would also work great as a bookmark for one of my French books.
