Last month my youngest son was selling wrapping paper for school.  This month my oldest is selling popcorn for Boy Scouts and my youngest is selling candy bars!  Well, I didn't want to ask anyone to buy anything else.  So, when life gives you candy bars, make candy reindeer! I decided to just buy the candy bar case myself and use the candy bars at an upcoming stamp camp.  I think they turned out very cute!  I started off by measuring the candy bar to see what size paper I needed.  A while back I bought some of the grid paper Stampin' Up! sells .  It has the grid to make keeping things straight really easy, but it also has measurements along the bottom and sides.  I have been happily surprised at how much I like using this paper while making my projects.  Anyway, I made the paper an inch longer and three times wider to wrap around the candy bar.  I used sticky strip to adhere the wrapper.

Next I made my Rudolph.  I used the owl punch for the head by turning the owl upside down and cutting off the feet.  I used circle punches for eyes, and a larger circle for the nose.  The nose is made with red glimmer paper so that everyone knows its our favorite reindeer, Rudolph! I sponged the edges of the Soft Suede head with a sponge and some Soft Suede ink, to add some depth.   The antlers were made with a die cut called Swirls Scribbles.  I really like that die!  I used it for steam in this post ( .)  I attached my reindeer with a dimensional sticky dot.  For some extra cuteness I made a collar for my reindeer, complete with little jingles bells from the Holiday Mini Catalog.
I added a little tag using stamps from the set Punch Pals, and the tag punch. 
I think he turned out very cute!  I hope you like him! 
Thanks for stopping by!!
