France Papillon key spool..

  Day two with France over on the Paper Artsy blog and she turned some cotton reel spools into beautiful key chains..and not only that she did a video!! I couldn't wait to have a go so was out in my shed a 7.45 this morning after my big fat tabby cat woke me up demanding breakfast.. Luckily I already had what was needed..but these could get addictive so may need to get some more spools.

I had a lot of fun making this and cannot wait to do some more..this one is going to be for the keys to my shed. I followed France's instructions which you can see here on video..Thank you France for fantastic inspiration!!

 *edit* have changed the photos .....

Thanks for stopping by...


  1. Gorgeous, Lin - and good on you for not missing out the shrink plastic like I did (may rectify that later!) Love your fibres.

  2. This looks really lovely! The shrink plastic looks so good on it and I love your colours. I haven't caught the video yet but must do this afternoon when I have a minute. x

  3. This is gorgeous, Lin! Just watched the video and desperately want to make one but I am away - may have to make one a week too late - that is me, always late to the party!

  4. Love this Lin! Fab colours and I love the stamps you used around the spool. The beads and the shrinky look great with your fibres too.
