Tiny Reindeer

*SECOND POST TODAY* 
I have a couple minutes of *free* time, so I thought I would post another cute little crafty treat. I got the idea from Kerry's paper crafts blog. She used a Silhouette to cut her antlers-you can check hers out HERE.
These are snack sized chocolate bars--I found mine at Target.
I cut the antlers from the reindeer on page 126 of
the Doodlecharms cartridge. Since there isn't just an antler
cut, you'll have to use your gypsy to move the reindeer
off the edge of the mat-- so you won't waste your paper.
I sized the reindeer at 3 1/2 with my Gypsy and linedfour along one edge. I used chocolate chip colored paper
from SU for the antlers. The reindeers are made out of
the smooth textured, kraft lt colored, Coredinations paper.
 The red sparkle paper is a scrap of something I had on hand.
 I cut a circle for the nose at a 1/2 inch.
This is what it looks like after you cut it out with your
Cricut. You will still have to use your scissors to cut out the actual
antlers from the rest of the head. You should get
20 sets of antlers from one piece of 12X12 paper.
Cute idea for plates at holiday dinners,
craft fairs, attached to a holiday card, for kids to give their friends,
even on a gift. I love them. I've already made about
100 of these this year.
