I found this idea on Pintrest, which originally came from “A Personal Touch” by Zoe Robson. I thought it was so cute that I shared it with a couple of my friends, and we actually made 100 of them to give as school and daycare Christmas treats. It was a lot of work to make 100, but I think the kids enjoyed them!
Here’s how I made the tag.
My Cricut was my best friend and I’m surprised it wasn’t smokin’ after cutting all the pieces. I used the Close to My Heart Cricut Cartridge “Art Philosophy” to cut all the pieces.
I cute this shape out of light brown cardstock and cut them in half. I cut the shape at 2 3/4 inches.
Then I cut the layer piece of the same shape out of red cardstock at 2 3/4 inches and cut them in half. I then used adhesive to glue the red piece to the brown piece.
On the tag, I stamped the words “Reindeer Noses” in CTMH Cranberry ink and the snowflakes in CTMH Bamboo ink.
Here’s where the assembly line took shape. Bobbie stamped the snowflakes, I stamped the words and Amanda did the following step.
Next, I cut three different sizes of circles. The outside brown was cut at 1 1/2 inches; the red circle was cut at 1 1/4 inches; and I used a 1 inch circle punch to cut the inside brown circle. I found this adorable reindeer stamp at Michael’s for only $1! I stamped part of the reindeer on each 1-inch circle using CTMH Chocolate ink and used red Stickles to make the nose glitter. I used adhesive to glue each circle on top of the other.
Lastly, we filled the treat bags. We used 8 Whoppers and 1 Cherry Sour Ball in each bag. I found the Cherry Sour Balls at Menards of all places (thanks Aunt Nancy for the idea). I believe the original directions called for a red gumball. Once all the bags were full we stapled the tag to the bag.
