Ornate base shapes have front and back build-up layers
which provide dimension in low relief to create this fancy key.
Embellish cards or boxes and other 3D projects.
Measures approx. 1.625" wide x 4.125" long.
This key is used as a key embellishment for
a Halloween decorated box.
(See that project tutorial HERE.)
ASSEMBLY: 1. Identify and cut the shapes:
NOTE - shapes are cut to complete
a full front and a full reversed back
2. Position the narrower shaft Layer 2 key shape
on top of the Base shape, align openings
or edges that align, and glue in place.
NOTE that shaping of the layers
will intentionally result in some edges
that are "edge contoured" back
slightly, and other edges that
should line up precisely.
3. Position and attach the shapes of
layer 3: welded swirl flourish & shaft . . .
. . . as shown here near their final positions.
(See image following.)
4. Continue to add the layer 4 shapes:
left and right flourishes, collar base shapes
5. Add the layer 5 shapes: nubs of
the collar shapes (doubled layers)
6. Layer and attach the circle punches into two stacks
of 8 circles each (one for front key,
one for back key), then . . .
. . . position the stack into the bolt circle cutout . . .
. . . shown here.7. Complete a FRONT and a BACK key,
then . . .
. . . reverse one and glue backsides together.
Here is the assembled key.
