Since I love the Damask style of designing and also making beautiful scroll saw key ornaments, I thought that using both elements for a set of ornaments would be the perfect match!
I think that you will find so many wonderful uses for these in your crafting and decorating projects. The wonderful, delicate designs are classic and the ornaments would make beautiful overlay pieces for things like picture frames and on boxes and plaques. You could even stack cut several layers of card stock to use the designs for scrap booking, hand made cards and other paper items. Simply layer the card stock between two pieces of plywood or scrap wood and cut as usual. It is a great way to efficiently
create multiples of one design.
As with my other ornaments, you can paint or finish them to your liking. Go to my web page and check out my video on using acrylic paint to make a great faux rust finish. I think these keys would look great like that!
Or you can paint them in beautiful pastel colors (or even black!) and add some pretty crystal hot-fix rhinestones for some extra sparkle. Wouldn’t that be elegant? I could go on and on with different suggestions, but I think you get the idea. I would love to see what you come up with in working with this pattern. Have fun and be creative!
