|Fold and cut a piece of grey card 13.5 x 10cm (5 3⁄8 x 4in). Make a mark 3.5cm (1 1⁄2in) from the top on both the left and right side edges.
||Using the craft knife and ruler, cut a line from the top edge to the mark on the left side edge.|
|Then cut from the mark on the left side edge to the mark on the right side edge.
||Using the silver-leafing pen, colour both the top and right side edges of the card front.|
|Cut a panel of grey card measuring 10 x 4.5cm (4 x 1 7⁄8in), then colour the edges with the silver-leafing pen.
||Cut a piece of patterned paper slightly smaller than the silver-edged panel. Using double-sided tape, attach the patterned paper to the panel.|
|Thread the silver cord through the key charm, wrap it around the panel, and tie a knot on the back.
||Stick two strips of double-sided foam tape onto the bottom two-thirds of the back of the card.|
|Inside, attach an insert with double-sided tape.
||Attach the panel to the front of the card so the top third extends beyond the top edge.|
