Felt: Kit Key chain

The materials are from felt kit I bought from a DIY shop, I just need to prepare a pair of scissors and I can start making the key chain.

There was a  small glue stick given in the pack but I did not use it. For those who wants to know how to melt the glue stick, you can easily get a candle or lighter and heat it up. It is so tiny, so when you heat up the glue stick, please be careful. I had substitute the glue stick with UHU brand glue, it works well too~

Feel free to drop me message if you have any question about this picture tutorial.
