Magic Reindeer Food

Can you believe stores are already putting merchandise out for Christmas???  I think they know how crazy we crafters can be and that we like to generate our ideas early.  =)  Here is an idea for a small winter giveaway that would make a great stocking stuffer or even a Secret Santa gift:

It is "Magic Reindeer Food".  What is Magic Reindeer Food you may ask? 

"Be sure to take this magic food and sprinkle on the lawn.
On Christmas, Santa's reindeer travel miles before the dawn.
The smell of oats and glitter path will guide them on their way
And you'll wake up to Santa's gifts next morn on Christmas Day!"

In a small baby food jar, cellophane bag, or zipper food storage bag, mix:
1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup red or green sugar crystals (as used for cake decorating)

*** Many recipes call for glitter in place of the sugar crystals but sugar crystals won't harm the birds and wildlife if ingested

Other items used to create the treat jar include the Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge, felt, ribbon, dimensionals, various cardstock, SU punches and a white gel pen. 

The stamp used is from My Pink Stamper's newest stamp release Winter Treats & Sayings.  Be sure to click on the link to view the stamp set and more great samples made from this stamp set.  The design team came up with so many cute projects to share with you.  Enjoy!
