Reindeer Food (a new tradition)

Basically, a child will remove the tube from the triangle stand on Christmas Eve, sprinkle the 'reindeer food' on the lawn so the food will attract Santa & his reindeer. The food is oatmeal mixed with a bit of glitter. I hope you enjoy it and decide to make some of these for the little ones in YOUR life! This will be a fun tradition to start for my grandbabies. This is my spin on a project that we did at Seminar this summer.

Begin with a 3" x 12" piece of decorative cardstock and score at 3", 6" & 9". Fold on scorelines and form into a triangle. Instead of gluing bottom of triangle together, by using Velcro you will be able to lay it flat later for easy storage. Using a 1" circle punch, punch a half-circle while the cardstock folded. Fill tubes three quarters full with oatmeal, add glitter, shake to mix and finish filling with oats.

The new TAC stamp set "Reindeer Food" has a total of 6 stamps in it and sells for $10.95. The tubes come 4 to a package from TAC for only $2.95.
