12 Days of Christmas 2016 Day 1

12 Days of Christmas 2016 Day 1


The Magic Reindeer Food is my 1st project for the 12 Days of Christmas.

I used a 6 x 6 piece of Crumb Cake card stock with the Envelope Punch Board to make this darling box.

The belly band is a 8 x 1-1/2 piece of Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper and you can make it so that it slides on and off... or you can make it stick to the box 🙂


After I stamped the Reindeer from the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set I cut it out with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch and I used Red Glimmer Paper for his nose 🙂

In the video I explain how to punch and score on all four sides of the 6 x 6 card stock using the Envelope Punch Board ...  here they are:  Side 1:  Punch & Score @ 2" & 4".  Side 2:  Punch @ 2" & 4" and only score @ 4" Side 3 & 4:  Punch & Score @ 2" & 4".  See video for cutting and assembling.
