Stocking Stuffers

I'm going to take my cards a to craft fair this year and I thought I'd add a few stocking stuffers to my table.  Here are my first attempts at making the snowman candy bars.  They were pretty easy as all I had to do was print the snowman created by Laurie Furnell then make the little hats and scarf.  I added a little glue to the bottom and then crimped it so the bar won't fall out.  The bar inside is a Jersey Milk.
I loved the idea of "Magic Reindeer Food" but thought the idea of stamping all those little tags and colouring them would take a long time to do so I thought I'd make a print sheet.  This sheet will print 20 tags that are 1 3/4"  round.  Matt them with a scallop circle and finish with a bow and jingle bell.
I then stamped the "instructions" onto address labels and stuck them on the back of the tubes.  The instructions are from a stamp set called Reindeer Games from Our Craft Lounge.

 

I used edible glitter from Wilton (found at Michael's) to make the food sparkle.
