Reindeer Noses

Happy Monday Friends!

Today's project is Reindeer Noses. I use to make these to send to school with my son when he was younger.  This year, I'm making a few for the grandchildren.

  • I cut Crumb Cake card stock (120953) with the Fancy Favor Bigz Die (115965) and the Big Shot (113439). 
  •  Sponged the edges in Soft Suede Ink (126978).
  • Cut the front of the box using a Apothecary Accents Framelits (127003), so you can see the noses, which are Malted Milk Balls and a Red Gumball in a 4" x 6" Cellophane Bag (102757).
  • Tie the bag with Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding (120992) into a double bow. To watch the video on how I tie a double bow, please click here.
  • Stamp December 25, from Joyous Celebrations stamp set (128069), in Early Espresso Ink  (126974) onto Crumb Cake card stock (120953). Punch out using the 1-1/4" Circle Punch(119861). 
  • Sponge edges.
  • Layer onto 1-3/8" Circle ( 119860) in Cherry Cobbler CS (119685)
  •  Cut smallest doilie using the Delicate Doilies Sizzlits Die (126999) in Champagne Glimmer Paper (Holiday Catalog 127885).
  • Attach to ribbon with Linen Thread (104199)
  • Below is the poem I printed onto Whisper White CS and cut to 3" x 3".
  • Layered onto Cherry Cobbler CS 3-1/4" x 3/4".
  • Stamped deer from the the No Peeking stamp set ( 126292) in Crumb Cake ink (126975) over poem and attached to the back of the box.

Rudolph has been busy
guiding Santa's sleigh
his nose has been glowing
through December night and day.
Well as you can imagine
the glow gets a little dim
so Santa has arranged
some spare noses just for him!
Inside this bag you'll find
spare noses for that deer
lovingly packed by Santa
with lots of Christmas cheer.
