This is a really good way to adjust your limited butged on prizes, and to use your creativity and talent to help with the short amount of money that your school have.

Step 1: Draw a Key Symbol

First draw the music symbol on a card roughly just using a pencil, then trace it with a marker, and a thicker line on both sides of the principal line.
The template has to be thick because i have to nail it to a base made of the same material: 9mm mdf.

Step 2: Trace the Template on the Mdf

Use the template that you already made (previous step) and trace it on a mdf piece.
I use some left overs parts
Trace as many music keys you need. The base has to be flat.

Step 3: Drill Some Holes and Cut

cut to the lines and inside the forms.

Step 4: Make the Bottom of the Prizes

A pre-hammered the nails leaving just the tip to adjust  the pieces, put some glue and then hammered both together

Step 5: Start Painting
