Are you in the “we have a chimney” club? We are not. 😉 If I could have picked everything we wanted in a home when we were shopping for one a few years ago, I would have for sure picked to have a fire place. It was on my list, but at last, we found our home and it didn’t have one. I’ve thought about building a mantel just to have one to decorate, but it hasn’t happened. I still might sometime, but for now, I just like to decorate my table and shelf that I have. Anyway, since we don’t have a fireplace and chimney, Santa needs a way to get in our home. 😉 I put together this Santa’s Magic Key Ornament, just for that.

Santa’s Magic Key Ornament Supplies:
Design your tag, upload it to Cricut Design Space, and click “Make it” so you can print it. When it prints, it will have registration marks/box so that the Cricut will know where to cut.
Once you have your tag printed, cut a piece of red foil to cover the tag. Make sure it doesn’t cover the registration marks/box. Place it into a transfer folder. TIP: Cover with a piece of paper in the transfer folder, to keep the black registration marks/box from leaving residue on the transfer folder.
Turn your Minc on and set to the heat setting you need. I almost always use 3. It seems to work for me.
Peel the remaining red foil off of the tag.
Place it onto the Cricut Mat.
After you printed your tag from Cricut Design Space, you’ll be prompted to load it into the machine. If you take a break between printing and cutting, there is an option to tell it that you already printed. When you are ready, cut your tag out with the Cricut Maker.
I love how clean it all looks after it’s cut!
Now you’re ready to attach the tag to the keys. I grabbed some ribbon and simply tied it on.
Finishing it up with a bow.
The foiled tag on this Santa’s Magic Key Ornament is perfect for hanging on the Christmas tree. The shine just makes the tree brighter.
Now Santa will have a way to get into our home. 😉 That is, if I leave the key out for him. If you’re looking for other fun ornaments to make, check out my gallery.
