I Brake for Reindeer Food


Hi, Braker Fans. I have a new project to share with you for my DT assignment for I Brake for Stamps. If you know me, you know that I love creating 3D paper crafts and since it’s getting close to Christmas I thought I would share a simple and cute Christmas favor you can make for those special people in your life.
I made a treat bag that has Reindeer food and it includes a traditional poem on the tag about how to attract Santa’s Reindeer to your home on that magical night. I used a sweet stamp from the IBFS store called “Rudolph.” Of course I didn’t color his nose red but he is still cute. I colored Rudolph with my Copics and I adhered him to my window treat box of Reindeer food.
Then I added a tag with my poem on the inside. The tag was cut from Bazzill and Stampin’ Up paper with my Cameo. I added a bow and a charm to finish it off.

My window bag is from SEI but you get make these from any craft store or you can make your own. Here is the recipe for Reindeer food and it is scrumptious.
 
Reindeer Food Recipe
Cover a cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper and set aside. In a large bowl mix the following:

2 1/4 cups Cheerios
3 1/4 cups Rice Chex
1 1/2 cups small pretzel twists
3/4 cup M&M’s
3/4 cup peanuts
1 - 12 oz. bag white chocolate chips

Stir gently with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. In the microwave melt one bag of white chocolate chips according to package directions. Let cool slightly and then stir into the cereal mix a spoonful at a time mixing well. Once the entire mixture is covered, spread evenly onto your cookie sheet. Let stand for 30-60 minutes so chocolate can set. Break up with your hands and fill bags or other containers.

Supplies:
Stamps – I Brake for Stamps
Cardstock – Bazzill
DPs – SU
