{christmas cheer} srm style

It's my turn on the SRM blog today.  Being in the spirit of all things Christmas, I have a couple gifty projects to show.  :)  The first is a Magic Reindeer Food Tube!  This would be a fun little something to give a child on the night before Christmas.  :)

I used an SRM Mini Tube and one word from the Christmas We've Got Your Border set.

The recipe for the magic reindeer food is equal parts uncooked quick oats, sugar and colored sugar (please don't use craft glitter, it's not good for the reindeer!) Here is a little poem that you can include with the tube:
Be sure to take this magic food and sprinkle on the lawn,

On Christmas, Santa's reindeer travel miles before the dawn.
The smell of oats and glitter path will guide them on their way,
And you'll wake up to Santa's gifts next morn on Christmas Day!

The second project is a mini tree and ornament set, perfect for a classroom, hospital room, retirement home or a tiny apartment. 
I wrapped the base of the tree with a felt square and secured it with a rubber band.  I layered the SRM Christmas Border sticker on a strip of white felt, wrapped it around to hide the rubber band and secured it with a brad.

I layered a Christmas tag from the Labels By The Dozen set on a piece of red felt, added a felt snowflake and placed a Christmas sentiment from the Stickers By The Dozen on it and placed it in the tree branches. 

The SRM Tube is a perfect place to store (and protect!) the mini ornaments!  I decorated it with stickers from the Christmas Borders and Stickers By The Dozen sets.

SRM can make decorating, crafting, card making and scrapping for the holidays so easy!
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a happy Monday!  :)
