Magic Reindeer Food

Hi everyone,
I'm sure you've seen this before, I have seen it done on so
many blogs, that I can not just credit one person. This is
my take on "Magic Reindeer Food", I made some of these
last year as well, for my two children, and my 6 year
old is eager to get her hand on some more this year haha.

The verse on the back reads:

Santa's Magic Reindeer Food
(Make a wish and close your eyes tight)

Sprinkle on the lawn at night
the moon will make it sparkle bright
as Santa's reindeer fly and roam
this treat will guide them to your home.

To make the mix of food, I have used a mixture of rolled oats
and some bird seed with Green jelly crystals mixed in to act
as glitter, this way, birds can come and eat the mixture later
without causing them any harm.

I like to send my own personal Santa letter along with the
reindeer food, there are some amazing websites around that
offer free Santa letters, but I like to make mine that little bit
more personalised to fit the person I am sending them to.
I also send a copy of  Santa's official 'Naughty or Nice' Ranking
Certificate, which can be downloaded and printed for free from there are so many amzing things that you
can see and do on that website, you really should check it out
if you haven't already.

Finally I include the all important Candy cane and stamp up
the envelope to match. Can't wait to see their faces when they
go to the letterbox this arvo ;o)
Stamps       'Winter Post'  and  'Best Yet' from stampin up
Other          Paper and cardstock from my personal stash
                     Happy Holidays ribbon, cellophane, circle punch
                     Scallop punch, foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a very Merry
Christmas and wonderful New Year.
