My Pink Stamper 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway : Day 10

  I am delighted to be a part of Robyn's (aka My Pink Stamper) 12 Days of Christmas 2011.

  I purchased test tube holders and filled with muesli and red glitter "magic reindeer food" for my dds to spread on the front lawn to remind Santa Claus to stop at our home.  I created this box to hold the test tube and made a video tutorial.  I hope you will watch it!  This is my second video ever.

Here are the written instructions to go along with the video:

EK success (Martha Stewart) test tube
My Pink Stamper "Winter Treats & Sayings"
score board
card stock (cut @ 4" x 11"; I used navy blue linen card stock)
patterned paper (I used Echo Park "Winter Park" collection)

1.  Score the 4"x11" card stock @ 1/2", 1 3/4", 4 1/4", and 5 1/2".
2.  Rotate card stock 90 degrees.  Score @ 1 1/4" and 2 3/4".
3.  Rotate card stock 90 degrees.  Score @ 8" down to the 1 1/4" score line (from step #1).  Score @ 8" up to the 1 1/4" score line.
4.  Cut away tabs (as seen in video).
5.  Cut (or punch) a 1" circle from the small scored square near the 4" side.  I used my Cricut Expression and the "center point" function key.
6.  Add tape to sides.
7.  Fold all score lines and assemble.
8.  Decorate as desired.  (I cut the red layers @ 1 5/16"x 2 13/16" & 1 15/16"x 2 5/16"; the house paper @ 1 1/8"x2 5/8" & 1 1/8"x 2 1/8").

My challenge for you, should you accept it:
  Use a food item from your pantry (baked items work well!) and create a winter/holiday treat container for it.

The challenge is purely for fun...leave a comment at My Pink Stamper for a chance to win some fabulous prizes...only two days left!

Hey June, great little project. I might use it when my newest grandson gets old enuf! He was born on black friday so we have a way to go yet. Where do you get the extreme adhesive squares? I haven't seen them anywhere. Merry Christmas to your family, wishing you a day filled with joy.

I love that this is different from the usual little packets of reindeer food that we usually make.Did you know that the glitter in the food is harmful to the birds.This year we have used the red and green sugar crystals you buy for putting on the tops of Christmas cookies instead. Merry Christmas liz
