A key for Santa

This is a cute idea I got from Emily.  Thank you for sharing it!


Here is what she said on her post:
"If you are like me you don't have a fireplace, My son asked me the other day how Santa would come into our house... and of course I made some lame excuse, So I started thinking there has to be a poem or something about Santa getting in, I found it by doing my favorite "googling" I wanted to make it so I could hang it up every year, so I had a piece of wood and modge podge it on with cute paper, saying, and I had a key I bought from Robert Craft's a long time ago ( see I knew I could use it for something!) nailed it in a there you go, so you don't strain your eyes to much let me tell you what it says:

Santa's Magic Key
Our stocking's hang upon a wall.
We have no fireplace at all!
You see the problem is quite clear.
Santa, how will you get in here?
We heard a legend is it true?
Of magic only you can do.
We'll leave out any plain old key,
and mark it "Santa" so you can see.
Your magic makes the key fit right,
so you can get inside that night.
Thank you Santa, here's our key.
The milk and cookies are on me! "

She used Katie's tutorial to make these great boxes as well. All I can say is WOW. It is wonderful!
Here is a picture showing how the key hangs from the lid if the box.

Thanks again for sharing your creativity Emily and for pointing us toward Katie too!

L-o-v-e it!
I have seen those in the pass but they look so "cheap".
But this idea might just work.
