Key to My Heart DIY Valentine

A few months ago I came across a great image on Pinterest — a styled shot of tasseled hotel keys from The Grand Budapest Hotel. I stumbled happily down a rabbit hole that ended at the portfolio site of Annie Atkins, the incredible designer hired by Wes Anderson to create the graphic elements for the film. Inspired by her whimsical tasseled keys, we decided to create our own fictitious fobs for this year’s free Valentine’s Day printable. Read below for everything you’ll need to create this simple “Key to My Heart” DIY valentine:
