1. Key Fob
2. Stitched Design
3. Sharp Scissors
4. Dull Bread Knife (just grab one out of your kitchen drawer!)

Cut your canvas down to about two canvas threads all the way around the design. There's no need to be afraid! You won't hurt the design. Just make sure to leave a few canvas threads between the edge you cut and the edge of the canvas. 

Use your scissors to score a line across the paper inside the key fob. As you peel it back you will expose a sticky layer. This is what helps your canvas stay in place inside your key chain. 

Line the design up with the opening and ensure it is centered. 

Use your bread knife to gently lift the leather up. This will make it easier to slip the design inside the key chain. 

Your knife will also come in handy as you insert the canvas into the leather. Work your way around the edge of the circle. 

And Voila! You've done it! Congrats on finishing your own key chain- and it couldn't have been easier. Now you're ready to gift it to a friend, family member or add it to your own keys!
