DIY Beads and Butterflies KeychainDIY Beads and Butterflies Keychain

I love keychains and usually the bigger the better LOL. It is easier to find it in the purse and it’s a little something to our home sweet home keys, isn’t it?. I also love beads and butterflies so I put them together to create a cute Keychain!
Me encantan los llaveros y usualmente cuanto más grande, mejor jajaja. Es más fácil de encontrarlos en los bolsos y carteras y también en un detallito en las llaves de nuestro querido hogar, ¿verdad que si?

DIY Beads and Butterflies Keychain

Llavero de Mariposas y Cuentas

I made this one and I love it, so I wanted to share it with you =D Hope you like it!
Hice este llavero y lo amé, así que quise compartirlo con ustedes =D Espero que les guste!

What you need:
Lo que necesitas:

Ribbon / Cintas
Beads and separators / cuentas y separadores
Ornaments / Adornos
Needles (jewelry)/ agujas (de bisutería)
Keychain Hook  / gancho de llavero

I used white organza ribbon.
Usé cinta de organza blanca.
First thing, cut 2 long strips of ribbon, it doesn’t have to be the same size, just keep it longer that the length you want it to be.
Lo primero es cortar 2 tiras de cinta, no tienen que ser del mismo largo, sólo hazlas más largas de lo que quieres que el llavero sea.
Fold them in half (or leave one side longer than the other =D) and insert the folded end of both strips through the hook hole.
Dóblalas a la mitad (o deja un lado más largo que el otro =D) e inserta el lado doblado de cada tira por el hueco del gancho.
When it’s out, leave a few centimeters, insert the other end (both ends) through the folded end and pull all the cord down and tighten!
Cuando haya pasado, deja unos centímetros, inserta los otros extremos por dentro del lado doblado y hálalo hasta el final apretando bien.
You should have something like this:
Deberías tener algo como esto:
Insert all 4 strips into a decorative bead
Inserta las 4 tiras en una cuenta decorativa
Make a tight knot
Has un nudo apretado
With a lighter burn a bit the ends to avoid fraying.
Con un encendedor quema un poco los extremos para que no se deshilache
Now in one strip insert a bead and make a knot
Ahora en una tira inserta una cuenta y has un nudo
Repeat the process in different distance in every strip
Repite el proceso en diferentes espacios en cada tira
For the butterflies ends, insert a needle into the spacer and then the butterfly
Para los extremos de las mariposas, inserta la aguja en el separador y luego la mariposa.
With a needle nosed pliers (is what I’ve got lol) make a swirl with the wire left
Con una pinza o alicate (es lo que tenía jajaja) has un aro con el alambre sobrante
Insert a jump ring in that swirl. Repeat the process with the rest.
Inserta un aro en el que has hecho. Repite el proceso con los demás.
Insert the end of a strip in the jump ring
Inserta el extremo de una tira en el aro
Make a Knot very tight
Has un nudo apretado
Repeat the process with all the strips. Since I had only 3 butterflies and 4 strips, I added a decorative bead to the 4th end!
Repite el proceso con todas las tiras. Como yo tenía sólo 3 mariposas y 4 tiras,  puse una cuenta decorativa en la 4ta tira.
So this is it, I LOOOOVE it!!!
Pues esto es, Me ENCANTAAAAAA!!!

    These are such a cute idea! I used to love key chains when I was a little girl. If I have a girl it should be something fun I could make with her. Me encanta que tu hablas en espanol e ingles en los aportes! Very cool! I was definitely looking to do a face lift on my site at some point so I made sure I followed your Pinterest and Twitter accounts to get some inspiration and ideas on how to do some interesting things! Have a great weekend! <3
