The Christmas season has arrived and we started by
making a special little gift to send to George's
Grand-daughters, Santa's Magic Key. When I was
their age my house had a small chimney that went
into a wood stove and I worried Santa would not be
able to deliver our presents. When Santa has a magic
key waiting for him he has no trouble getting into
homes that do not have a fireplace. One Christmas
I even slept on the floor of the bathroom so I could
see when he might come through our front door.
You can see everything we used in the photo below, scissors, glue stick, hole punch, ribbon,
old key, printer paper, Christmas card and envelope because we sent ours in the mail.
First, George cut the card in half (we only used the front) then I typed out the phrase we
wanted to use on the computer and printed it out the right size for the space we had on the card.
The next step was to trim our poem and glue it to the front of the card.
We then trimmed the card into the shape of a tag and punched a hole at the top.
One of the last steps was to thread the ribbon through the hole and include the vintage key before
tying a knot right above the card then a bow at the very top so it would slip over the door knob easily.
We mailed our MAGIC KEY across the country for less than $2 but when the
girls open it their reactions will be priceless.
It's that quick & simple!
