Digital files can be resized, rotated or flipped as needed. The files are in .png format. PNG format files have a transparent background so are easy to layer over other digital images. You can open .png files using most image management programs like Photoshop Elements. Digital collage sheets and digital images can be saved to your computer and printed as many times as you wish.
Since the center window did not have a light, I when ahead and filled it with presents and a horn.
Lastly, I glued all of the houses together. After lining them up with the base I marked and punched holes for the LED tea lights. The hole does not have to be pretty as it will be blocked by the images in the window. I then glued the boxes in place.
Finally, I added the toy images to the windows that have lights.
The final touch is the clock in the center from the collage sheet and the Santa Hat buttons.
In addition to the attaching the signpost to the back, I also attached trees from the Winter Wonderland collage sheet and applied the white flocking to the white parts of the trees.
In these pictures you can see how the workshop looks lighted. To turn on the lights, just lift up the Workshop and flip the switch.
