Door Hanger

I made this door hanger for my daughter Madison who left for Alabama last week to get her Masters in Accounting.... her room mate wakes her up from her naps...and Madison loves ..and needs her naps... So I thought this would help...the paper matches her new bedspread....She will get a kick out of opening this..~~Jeannie

Z's cut at 1 and 1 1/4 inches.
The door-hanger was hand cut... I used a 1 1/2 inch circle punch for the center and cut the slat with sissors ... its mounted on a piece of chipboard and the back side is covered but not decorated.... words are computer generated and the levers were a part of the paper pack.
