A Monster Door Hanger!

Happy Friday, everyone! Another week has flown by! This week's My Favorite Challenge is child-themed -- use those My Favorite Things stamps to make something for a child. The challenge thread has some inspiration pieces to kick start your ideas!

The monster inspiration piece led me to the set Monsters Ink, and I used it to make this two-sided door hanger for a kids' room. The letters were made with Bling 'Bet. You'll know whether your little one is in or out of his room when you look at the sign! :)

I used two chipboard coasters, and I covered each with the dp. Then I glued them together before inserting the Jumbo Eyelets. I paper pieced the monsters. I found these little red jingle bells in my stash, and I added them to the monsters so there would be a little noise when the door opens!


That's it for today! Thank you so much for visiting! :)

Have a fantastic Friday!
Christina
