  3. Carefully use your scissors to cut around the shape of the tag so that you have a small, even border of ivory card showing all the way around the tag.
  4. Make a small hole at the top centre of the tag by using your hole punch.
  5. Take a length of hemp cord. Hold the centre of the cord and starting at the front centre of the invitation, pass both ends of the cord around to the back of the card. When both pieces of cord meet at the centre of the back, twist them around each other at a 90 degree angle and pass the ends back round to the front. When both ends meet again at the front centre, pass them underneath the line of cord and them tie a knot over the top. Thread your tag and then your key on to one end of the cord.
