Door hanging santa letters!!

Papers and digi stamps - Twelve crafters Crafting from Funky Hand.
Door hanger template- Craft the Year Away from Funky Hand.

Afternoon Peeps!!

A bit of a quicky from me today!! we have had another lovely day today. A very relaxed and lazy one really. We popped to B&Q to get some red chipped bark for Mo's little garden bench planter so we can pop his little christmas lights in, its raining here today but I will try and get a piccy tomorrow as it looks lovely. This afternoon we have been to the christmas market in the village where Mo goes to school. It was lovely.

Then a teeny bit of quicky crafting for me! Mo wanted to make some gifts for his friends for the end of term as it is his birthday on the last day of term. I thought it would be nice to make some door hangers using my Funky Hand papercraft factory cd roms because Mo is really good at using those. He chose the papers and I had a lovely idea to turn them into santa letter door hangers, just to help santa remember what the children asked for when he gets to their bedroom!!!! I had to giggle though as Mo won't write a letter to santa, he says he is just happy with whatever he gets (....which is supercute and makes it easy to get him gifts!! he says christmas is about family and baby jesus not presents!!! he has been like that since he was a toddler!! cute!!)

Firstly I opened up Craft the Year Away and chose the door hanger template. Then to use it with the papers on Twelve Crafters Crafting I simply changed edition. ( can do that by clicking on the change edition button under the colourway titles to use the templates with any of the last 3 papercraft factories.)
I did the typing for the letter bit using the workspace.

All that was left to do then was print, cut and tie a little ribbon around them. I didn't want to do too much else to them as Mo wants to take in some sweets to give out too. we have made 30 of these this afternoon and he wants little sour cream containers for the sweets so that's next weekend's job!!

Right off to snuggle up with a film now!! Harry Potter 1 today!
