Be sure to see the Give Away at the end of this post! Thanks for being patient while I was having computer problems. 🙂 Here is Day 5 of the 2 Million Hits Give Away!
I bought these little coffees and thought they needed some dressing up before being given away.
I’m using a file I downloaded from the Silhouette store called, Mistletoe. I thought Mistletoe could also make great antlers! I varied their sizes so I could have large and small reindeer and cut them out using my Silhouette Cameo. I bought my Cameo from Expressions Vinyl.
After cutting out the mistletoe/antlers, I used these simple tools to make the reindeer. The stamp shown in this photo will be used in my next post and so will the green antlers/mistletoe and ink.
In this post, I’m using Joy’s Life All Around Sentiments stamps, Glue Dots, Divine Twine by Whisker Graphics, Marvy Uchida 2″ scalloped square punch, Tim Holtz wood grainembossing folder, Viva Decor pens, stickles and googly eyes.
To give the antlers their woodgrain look, I used the woodgrain embossing folder in my Cuttlebug machine. Do you want to know more about the Big Shot and/or Cuttlebug embossing/die cut machines? This video can help:
The twine and stamps work great together giving a nice festive look to the reindeer coffee! The dots around the tag are made using Viva Decor pearl pens.
