Ho, Ho, Ho!

Hello, and happy Monday!

I'm here to share an altered item today, that was created for my Die-Versions post.
I wanted to create with my new 'Elegance' Font.  While at a local craft show last
weekend, a friend and I saw the cutest newsprint project using Fa La La...

So....what other little words pertain to Christmas? Yep!  Ho, Ho, Ho!!!

This is another Dollar Store find - it was $2 and started out as an unfinished three window frame.
It was a fun project - hope you like it!

Die Versions "Elegance" Font DV-411
Here's what I did:

A coat of red paint
Some Amuse printed cardstock
Some cute patterned paper
Some black, red, silver, and white cardstock
Lots of Tombow adhesives!!!
A last minute touch of fluffy stuff on the hat, and voila!
An old buckle punch, and a couple of circle punches

A fun and festive holiday decoration!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hope you'll do a bit of shopping at Die-Versions - love their dies!!!
And, be sure to sign up to follow the Die-Versions blog, where you will find daily
inspiration 'to die for'!!!

I'm entering this in the challenge at Tombow, which is to take a Dollar Store item and alter it for a Christmas gift!  Edit - waited too long - won't be entering at Tombow after all.  Sad face here :(

I don't just like it, Patti, I LOVE it! You have a true eye for design to be able to spot that frame and "see" the ho ho ho capabilities in it! It's genius and festive and people would pay big bucks for it as a home decor item!! Hugs, Darnell

This is just colorful & delightful. I'm always impressed with Dollar store finds that turn into something beautiful. This one certainly did. Your imagination & a few supplies worked wonders. You've definitely got the 'eye' to spot these finds and know what to do with them, once you get them home. That is a skill. TFS & Hugs
