Generally, I mostly make cards. But this time, I wanted to be different. I've been getting into the Christmas spirit and thinking ahead for gift giving. These little packets of Reindeer Poop are going to be one of the little gifts that I give to my nightshift co-workers this year, for Christmas. (You can see the other gift for them, in a separate post.) Anyone who has ever worked night shift knows that sometimes you need that little sugar rush to get through the night, so I felt this was perfect.
For this project, I used cellophane treat bags, and filled them with Brach's Peanut Clusters candy, then sealed the bags with these cute little bag toppers.
The bag toppers were made using cardstock and patterned papers from my stash. I've used this cute little reindeer image from Stamps. He is colored with Promarkers and punched with a circle punch, then layers onto a larger punched circle. I used a clearstar gelly roll pen to add some sparkle to the image. I punched holes in the center of the topper and used ribbon to secure it to the bag. But then I realized I shoudl probably make sure its more secure so I added a staple to each side of the topper. ( I wish I'd had some red or green staples to use, but I didn't so I had to use the ugly regular staples.) The back of the bag topper has the Reindeer Poop poem, which is also punched with circle punches.
These make great stocking stuffers, too, for those of you looking for stocking stuffer ideas!
