Reindeer Food

Look. As a person whose animals eat all of the following:

  • dryer sheets
  • ribbon
  • packing tape
  • styrofoam peanuts
  • pumpkin from the can
  • raw spaghetti
  • lint
  • embossing powder
  • cardstock
I would never advocate giving an improper food to a pet. Really - let them steal it and run under the bed with it like mine do. I think it tastes better under the bed.

No, seriously. I will really be serious.

Do NOT feed your pet reindeer this delicious Ghirardelli peppermint bark/dark chocolate combo that just happens to coordinate perfectly with your papercrafty Christmasy project that you did for your Splitcoast Shoebox Swap.

Don't.

I don't think reindeer are supposed to have peppermint bark.

I have nothing to back this up - it's just a feeling.

What you SHOULD do with said peppermint bark is what I did though.


Step one: see THIS gorgeous creation on Splitcoast.
Step Two: Cut a petal card with your Big Shot Die from Tempting Turquoise.
Step Three: Stamp in black the wreath from Welcome Christmas on white cardstock and punch with this punch.
Step Four: Tie three sides closed with twine.
Step Five: Accent wreath with glitter and glue.
Step Six: Punch out a Martha Stewart teeny deer from Tempting Turquoise and pop him in the middle.

Add candy if you're not giving this to a reindeer. :)

  1. Hahahaha!! I think your cats may be on to something. (Stuff probably also tastes better under/on/through the Christmas tree too!)

    Love the little pouch - and if you're concerned about reindeer getting into that chocolate, I would be more than happy to take it off your hands (and apply it to my hips)!

  2. I thought you were going to show us reindeer food (oatmeal + sugar), but this is MUCH better. :)

    My brain, however, is not, because I forgot we had a regular-size petal card die and I was thinking you'd made this from the teeny tiny petal card PUNCH, so that stamp and reindeer would have to be like 1/2" across. And the candy would have more foil than innards.

    I'm okay now, though.
