Reindeer treat tube

Hello!  It's kind of weird to be posting a Christmas project on Halloween, but I got tired of Halloween projects early this year.  :) 

For this project, I made a candy holder tube.  It's supposed to have red and green kisses, but surprisingly the stores have waited to put the Christmas candy out until after Halloween this year I guess, so I threw in some red and green Jolly Ranchers from my craft room candy dish just to give you the general feel for it until I can get my hands on some kisses.  The bottom of the tube was really easy to decorate, I just used a piece of paper from my scraps and some red ribbon and wrapped it around.

The super cute reindeer face is from KaDoodlebug Designs.  I used some more scraps from my scraps bin for the antlers and holly, and I think that worked out quite well.  The holly berries have some glitter glue on them for a little sparkle.  I used googly eyes instead of the eyes that came with the cut file, and there was no mouth with the cut file so I stamped one on.  What stamp did I use?  Well, I happen to have Pink by Design's "Orange you Awesome: and I used an eyebrow from one of the faces, upside down.  :)  I just colored it in with my versapen and stamped it right down.

Finally, I added a tag from my really old stash of tags that had been packed away for the whole year that we were trying to sell our house plus the six months we were at the apartment.  When I found them once we moved in here, I was like "I need to use these up!"  The back was white, so I thought it would work well.  I inked the edges with red ink and then stamped a sentiment from Jaded Blossom's "Christmas wishes" stamp set.

This project is being entered into the following challenges:
