Hack of the Week No.162

"Merry Christmas Gift"


This hack may look similar to a few of you. When we were making the switch between websites we had a handful of hacks that did not get a Shop Notes post. This Hack of the Week was originally No.134.

At that time Don Harding and his Daughter Jill worked on a finished piece together and we felt their version was better... ūüôā Here is the updated hack officially, now, No.161. ¬†The image below is of Don and Jill's finished piece!

This project hack would make a great gift for a party host or even hang in on your front door during the holidays.

There are now 2 different ways for you to recreate or customize this Hack of the Week!

As always, if you have been a collector of Design and Make single models and projects you may have all that you need in your collection already or just need to purchase one of two of the missing bits.

Models and Projects Used to make this hack:

Font - Century

Purchase this layout as a 
Hack of the Week Project! 

Now you can purchase this layout as a single model and we have included all of the single models used to create it!  You can now purchase and customize our layout or even better, you can recreate your version of the layout and if you want, swap out models with those in your library!  Now that's a Design and Make Hack!  


Love the way Jill added to snow to the tree to make it look just like one you would find in the woods after a snow fall!  Lovely finished to a great layout... that is why we could not resist editing the original hack and adding it as a Hack of the Week Project!
