JOY sign

We made a framed BOO sign for Halloween that was so easy and so inexpensive, and turned out so cute, that we decided to do a Christmas one with the word JOY.

What You Need:
  • Collage Frame with 3 Opening for 4 x 6" Photos (Got this one at Michaels for about $3.50 on sale)
  • Christmas-Themed Scrapbook Paper, approx. 4.5" x 6.5" (three pieces)
  • Die-Cut Letters J-O-Y (we used red scrapbook paper)
  • Glue
  • How to Make It:
    • Remove back from frame. Take out matting.
    • Tape or glue three pieces of scrapbook paper to back of matting so the pattern shows through the openings. 
    • Turn matting over and center and glue down each letter in its place  (our letters were cut out using a Cricut Expression).
    • Place back in frame and replace backing. Done!
