Keys To Success

This chic rustic style “Keys to Success” idea can double as your graduation party guestbook and is an easy afternoon project!

Materials Needed

  • 1 Small or Medium Box
  • Tags for guests to write their “keys To Success”
  • Keys (Based on your preference you can purchase small keys to glue on the card or larger ones that you can secure to the tag with string or yarn)
  • Glue Stick
  • String or Yarn
  • Fine Point Sharpie Marker

Helpful Tips:

Box: Obtain a small or medium box that is big enough for your guests to place their “keys. I found this wooden box at Marshalls for a couple of dollars. I chose this box because of it reminded me of a hope chest and it had clasps on the front to secure my success notes.

Tags: I suggest using packing tags as they have a hole for you to tie the keys to.

Keys: I did a mixture of small and large keys to have different dimensions and allow the guests to have various options.

Small Keys and Tags

  1. Take a tag and run the glue stick on the left side of the tag near the opening.
  2. Take one of the small keys and place on the glue part of the tag and hold for 30 seconds.
  3. Place tag and key to the side and let it dry for at least an hour.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 for the rest of the tags and keys.

Large Keys and Tags

  1. Take the yarn or string and cut into 3″- 4″ pieces till you have enough for each tag.
  2. Take a large key and place a tag on top of the key, aligning the holes.
  3. Take a cut piece of yarn or string and put in through the keyhole and tag hole.
  4. Grab the other end of the yarn or string so that the key and tag are hanging.
  5. Knot both of the ends securely.
  6. Repeat steps 2-5 for the rest of the tags and keys.
