Reindeer Coffee Gift & Give Away

Be sure to see the Give Away at the end of this post!ย  Thanks for being patient while I was having computer problems. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Here is Day 5 of the 2 Million Hits Give Away!

From Ho Hum Coffee to Ho Ho Ho Coffee

I bought these little coffees and thought they needed some dressing up before being given away.

Screen shot of Mistletoe turned antlers.

I’m using a file I downloaded from the Silhouette store called, Mistletoe. I thought Mistletoe could also make great antlers!ย  I varied their sizes so I could have large and small reindeer and cut them out using my Silhouette Cameo.ย  I bought my Cameo from Expressions Vinyl.

Supplies Me! LOL!

After cutting out the mistletoe/antlers, I used these simple tools to make the reindeer.ย  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.

Simple to assemble! YAY!

To give the antlers their woodgrain look, I used the woodgrain embossing folder in my Cuttlebug machine.ย  Do you want to know more about the Big Shot and/or Cuttlebug embossing/die cut machines?ย  This video can help:

How to Use the Big Shot & Cuttlebug Video

All Around Sentiments stamps are made to work alone or with 1" and 1 1/2" circle punches.

The twine and stamps work great together giving a nice festive look to the reindeer coffee!ย  The dots around the tag are made using Viva Decor pearl pens.


To be entered for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to Whisker Graphics, leave me a comment telling me which of their products is your favorite.ย  I LOVE their pretty twine!!ย  They also have the cutest bags and other things too.ย  Check it out!ย  I’ll use Random.org to choose a winner and list the winner here on Thursday, December 22.
