Reindeer Pouch

Good Monday Morning! So this morning I woke up with one swollen eyelid and it hurts to blink. {and let me tell ya...it's oh so pretty!!} I am not sure what the deal is I am keeping an "eye" on it though! ha!
Alright....let me start by saying that I am way too impressed with myself. I made this little reindeer pouch all by myself...no caseing! I am sure that I am not the only one who came up with this cuz it's pretty basic but I am just so pleased with myself none the less!! :) I saw a little foam reindeer face at Michaels and I thought I can do that with paper...and so I did! I used my pennant die cut for the face. I punched out circles for the nose and eyes. I put some crystal effects on Rudolph's nose to make it shine just the right amount! :) I drew the antlers and cut them out and adhered them to the inside of the pouch. The little holly leaves...I started with a little rectangle piece of paper and then I used my 1/2 in. circle punch and punched all the sides to get pointed leaves. I used dew drops for the holly berries. I added some paper shred and then it's ready for fillin'! I had candy in it ...but that was a few days ago and well...I ate it...I waited too many days to take a picture! I came up with this as one of the projects for Crafty Friday. Tyson and Kyler's classes will be making these this Friday. I had so much fun making santa ornaments last week with the kids.
Ok...enough babble from me! Have a great day...thanks for coming by!

So cute! All I can say is I wish you had posted this before I went shopping for the candy skewer materials! Now I have to go back to the craft store. What a bummer. ;) Thanks for all your tempting ideas!
