Hey, there's Fred!

The project I am showing you today is not original.

 But it is fabulous.  And it has Fred.  Remember Fred?

My friend Carol over at The Answer is Chocolate (and-isn't it always?), posted about this "Happy Haunting"  banner she found (over at Moselle Design) and made.  I loved the look of it, and printed it off!

I cut the paper with my trimmer, and glued it onto a dusty orange color.  That card stock was then cut with a decorative scissor. I ran a black marker around their edges for dimension. 

The detail on these is really beautiful, in an eerie sort of way .  I punched holes in the corners and used brads to connect them.  At the end pieces, I punches holes and added eyelets for the string. 

I tried hanging it on my stairs, but my staircase is too short for it (I know-I have such problems!).  It ended up in the entrance way to my living room.  It works very well with the room color.

This is my favorite part though!

Fred!  That is one happy dude. 

Fred knows where it's at!
