September Blog Hop - Gift



Magic Reindeer Food...



A little gift for a special child, what could be better than some magic Reindeer food to sprinkle on your lawn so that santa's reindeer can guide Saint Nicolas to your house.

Start with a small jam jar and fill with sugar and oats layering in turns until the jar is full to the brim.

Add a belly band to the jar mine is PTI Pure Poppy Topnotch Twill add a little round disc, mine is stamped with PTI birds of a feather and Holiday Wishes and add a frill and a label to the lid and tie with a ribbon my frill was made by cutting a nestabilitie large scalloped circle from Linen Vellum


Now for the label it reads


Sprinkle on the lawn at night

The moon will make it sparkle bright

As Santa's reindeer fly and roam

This will guide them to your home.
