Christmas Reindeer Jars
Here's a closer version showing Rudolf & his sparkly red nose better.
punched out with our brand new red Glimmer paper from the Summer Mini) & the eyes are...well the owl eyes! The antlers are stuck on to the white circle with a 2 way glue pen & I hand drew the mouth with an early espresso marker. The neck is a leaf shape cut using the 1 3/4 inch circle punch. I've mounted Rudolf on a 1 3/4 inch circle & 2 3/8 inch scallop circle.
We got the idea for Rudolf from a similar reindeer on a paperclip, that my lovely friend & downline Sarah made last year for her students (I can't find them on her blog, but they were really cute).
We filled the jars (which was from Ikea - sold in a set of 4 for only a few dollars) with Darrell Lea Jingle Bell chocs. To finish off the decorations, we made a matching tag using a sentiment from 'Tags til Christmas', punched out with the square scallop punch & mounted on a 4.5cm square tag. We added a thank you message to the other side of the tag, then threaded some ribbon (from my pre SU stash) & tied a pretty bow. Done! All the ladies seemed to really like them & I think we convinced some other volunteers that they should volunteer at the Unform Shop too next year.
Anyway, I hope you like them too. If you have any questions, just leave a comment...or leave a comment anyway. I love to hear from you. Back soon with....something else!
Inky wishes, Di
