Santa Accessories - How to use

Hello!  I wanted to give you a little picture how-to on how we use the Santa hats in the new digital Santa Accessories set.  It's basically similar to how I showed you to use white-filled PNG files last time.

First place the image in Word or Publisher and resize to desired size.
Then place the desired hat
Finally, move and position the hat on the head,  Resize the hat as you see fit.
Here are a couple more examples of characters and their santa hats...

Oh I am so glad that I found the Santa Accessories. That Little Birdie put a giggle in my step. He is Just Darling.

How much more do you like the Laser Ink over the Inkjet. I have a Laser printer on my wishlist for Santa. I hope I will get as much use out of it as I dream I will.
Merry Christmas and Thanks for the Talent!
