Blog Tour Has Arrived!

November 19, 2009

Hello Everyone out there in blog world.  The RemARKable Holiday Blog Tour has officially started.  Yippie… Get Ready for some daily  Fun, Exciting & New ideas from the team.  Everyone is very different so there are many unique things you will see if not on this blog but maybe on the next blog so make sure you hop thru all the blogs all the way back to mine.  I have decided to show you what I’m making with the “kids” at Chik Fil A’s family night.  I’m sponsoring an evening at our local CFA & the kids will be making this “Reindeer Food” pouch I learned at a team meeting over a year ago.  This is so much fun & a very quick easy kids project but us adults will have fun with it as well.

Reindeer FoodHow stinkin’ cute is this.  This is just a small 1 # brown paper bag it’s 3 1/2″ wide & then you just trim the top down to fit the Top Note die (you can find these in your local craft store).  You will run the Top Note Die thru the Big Shot with Close To Cocoa Card Stock & cut out 2 one for the front & one for the back.  Just adhere to the bag with Snail.  Then you will use the Big Shot again to run the Tulip die thru your Big Shot with Chocolate Chip Card Stock & use just a portion of this for the antlers.  You can adhere it to the front of the bag at the top.  You will then punch 2 Whisper White large ovals & 2 small ovals out of black.  You will layer these as you see in the photo for the Reindeer’s eyes & apply to Top Note.  You can use a white gel pen to accent the eyes.  You can punch a 1/2″ circle out of Real Red card stock or use a small red pom pom.  Then take a black Stampin’ write marker to put on the mouth.    You can then flip the bag over & apply the 2nd Top Note piece & then apply the verse.

Reindeer Food back / Verse It reads:

“Magic Reindeer Food”

Make a Wish & close your eyes tight

Then sprinkle on your lawn tonight

As Santa’s Reindeer fly & roam

This food will guide them to your home

“Happy Holidays”

At this point you can fill the bag with some rolled oats & some red & green sugar crystals to sparkle in the moon light to attract Santa’s Reindeer.  Once it is full you can close is at the top with a brad.

Here is another bag that my mom designed & put some Snow Man Soup (Hot Cocoa mix, Marshmallows, & Peppermint stick) inside.  This is made will punches & the Top Note die as well… this time the Top Note Die is turned on it’s side & the Bashful Blue Card Stock is applied to lunch bag.
