Edited to add: Please see post dated 26.10.2009 for a template for the reindeer.
I've been busy...... The theme over on the Winter Wonderland Blog is an open one this week and at Pals Paper Arts(PPA13) the challenge is anything but a card.
Every year for the past three years I have been assigned the task of decorating the tree at my youngest sons school for their annual Santa Claus visit. This year the task falls to me again. I always like to decorate the tree with some sort of treat holder which get handed out to each child on their departure (almost like a party favor). Needless to say I have to make about 80 of these so I get started early, especially as I am writing my final exams at the moment all the way through to the end of November
: ( . The reindeer head is folded over to make a holder for a candy cane(see below).
I then made shortbread cookies with my boys and the idea came to me to convert the reindeer into a cookie holder too....
Here's a back view so you can see how the cookie is attached. I put it into a cello bag, made two holes at the base of the reindeer head, tied ribbon through and tied the bag to the back of the head, I then glued the ribbon over the holes in the front.
I made the reindeers all a little different.
While I was making the reindeer the creative juices started flowing and I also made these using my circle punch.
And here's what they all look like together....
