Jingle Bells and Reindeer Feed for Belles N' Whistles!

There's a quick and sweet project that I used to make with my girls for the holidays. It's called Reindeer Feed and you put it down on Christmas Eve to lure the reindeer pulling Santa's sleigh to your house.

I adore Jingle Bells by Belles N' Whistles. I just love Elisabeth Bell's illustrations and these Christmas Collections are just adorable and magical to me. I could just color and color all day long!

It's so easy to make. All you need is one cup of oats, one cup of sugar and mix in some glitter or some colored sugar or crystals. Some birds don't digest the glitter very well!

I just love this reindeer's sweet face and look at this sweet elf. Have you seen anything cuter?

So I hope you enjoy this quick project for the kids. It only takes a few minutes and gives you lots of sweet memories in return. I know it did for us!

Card Ingredients:

Jingle Bells by Belles N' Whistles, Eskimo Kisses by BasicGrey, stickles, copics, fine glitter by MS, nestabilities, SU topnote die, oatmeal, sugar, glitter

What a great coloring job! I do the "reindeer food" each year for the DGSs and their friends - this year I found some small pails in white and red at the Target $1 section which I will fill with the reindeer food and I just bought this image too so I can use it as a tag on the pail - what fun! BTW, you can find edible glitter at cake decorating stores and perhaps in the cake decorating sections of Ms and ACMs! I, too, am careful about what goes into it for the sake of the birds and, yes, even the dreaded squirrels!
