Christmas Countdown Continues!

What fun we’re having with our 12 Days of Christmas countdown! I hope you’re loving popping in here at the blog to grab these little gifts we have put together especially for you and that you’re taking advantage of all the product specials!

Today’s 1/2 price item is the fabulous “Life is Good” collection. This is one of my personal favourites as it is so versatile and I simpy love the glorious colours!

I have a little hybrid printable for you today which your children or grandchildren are sure to love. And what’s stopping you from giving these away as little gifts to friends just before Christmas Eve? Include a cute little tag with a special Christmas message and you have a personalised little gift.

I made these little Reindeer Food seed packets using W&W Christmas products: Jolly Holiday and Joy to the World

Here’s the recipe:

Reindeer Food:
1/2 cup oatmeal (uncooked)
1/2 cup coloured sugar crystals*

Mix together and share it between the completed seed packets.

Now sprinkle a little magic!

* Other recipes call for glitter to be used with the oatmeal, but sugar crystals are much kinder to the birds who tend to eat the food!

Here are some other ideas:

Decorate a little jar with ribbon and make a label with the instructions on it. (see back of printable seed packet for “instruction poem”)

Place the food into a small paper bag, glue the instructions (poem) on the front and decorate with ribbons etc.

Simply use your imagination!

Instructions:

  1. Download the zipped file.
  2. Print out the seed packets onto A4 size cardstock (there are 2 different designs on the one A4 page).
  3. Cut out along the outlines.
  4. Preferably use a bone folder tool to score along the fold lines, it makes it much easier to fold over the flaps and it looks neater too.
  5. Spread glue along the flaps and glue together to form a seed packet (Glue the bottom flap onto the side flap, then glue the back onto that).
  6. Fill with the Reindeer food and finally glue down the top flap.(Glue right to the edges to ensure the Reindeer Food doesn’t spill out).

I love magical little goodies like this and I so enjoy watching the kids have fun in their little fantasy world! Aren’t children’s imaginations amazing?

Please remember :
