Magical Reindeer Food

I know that i should be thinking of Halloween, but it's really not my favorite holiday...so i'm thinking about Christmas! These are Magical Reindeer Food Bags. They are so cute, don't you think? Not only are they cute but they were real easy to make.

Inside the decorated paper is a plastic bag filled with oatmeal, green, red, & gold glitter....all non toxic!

The first thing that i did was get out my jumbo wheel from SU called Swirling Stars. I covered an entire piece of 8 1/2 x 11 paper with the design. I put the paper on my paper cutter so that the top of the paper measured 8 1/2. I cut the paper in half...the long way at 4 1/4". Then I scored the paper, putting the paper in the long way, so that the 11 " is on the top I then scored the paper at 1 3/4, folded the flap and measured from the flap and scored again at 3 3/4....turned the paper around and scored again at 3 3/4. Then I folded on my scored lines, and had the flap in the front. I punched two holes on the inside and then matched up the holes, and with a pencil marked the holes on the outside flap. I pulled ribbon through from the inside, placed the bag of oatmeal on the inside of the bag, stapled it to the inside, and then pulled the ribbon through from the inside to the outside and attached the reindeer tag, made from the SU set Festive Favorites , with gold cording and then finished tieing up the ribbon. On the back of the bag I attached a little poem, it reads,

"Magical Reindeer Food....

Sprinkle on your lawn Christmas Eve night

The Moon will make it sparkle bright

As Santa's Reindeer fly and roam

This Food will guide them to your home..."

I know this is probably clear as mud....and thanks for looking...if you have any questions...just let me know!
