Reindeer Poop Stocking Stuffer or Party Favor – Free Printable

REINDEER POOP!!
Yes, I went there…..
Hi everyone.  I’m busy again this year with a new classroom gifty for my son’s 5th grade kiddo’s.
Last year I did Grinch Pills and you can find that post HERE.
This year I’ve got some Reindeer Poop for them.  
Seriously, what 5th grader does NOT think poop is funny?  lol
I filled a little 3″ x 3″ zip loc baggie with Milk Duds (Whoppers or Raisinettes work well too).
I then printed my graphic, folded it in half and stapled it to the top of the candy bag.  I finished it off with a tiny little bow made of 1/8″ Red Diagonal Stripe Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
There are lots of different reindeer poop poems and projects ideas on Pinterest.  
Yes, you would be amazed how many!  I wasn’t totally thrilled with any of the free printables offered though, so I set out again to design my own.  This is always an adventure because it’s so long between each project that I make, it’s like learning all over again.  I must start using my software more often!
My cute little reindeer is a free graphic from http://timvandevall.com/.  Take a look at this great website.  He has lots of great freebies and other fun stuff.
Feel free to use my Reindeer Poop sheets, but they are meant for personal use only.
I used the generic Merry Christmas ones so they could just be passed out to the children easily,  but I made another option with a to and from on the back.  Use whichever works best for you.
Simply click on any of the graphics and save them to your computer and then print them.
For personal use only.
For personal use only.
Here are full sheets set up for printing on 8-1/2″ x 11″ card stock.
For personal use only.
For personal use only.
This is a great fast and easy project.
Once I had the graphic designed, I whipped up 24 of them in a couple of hours.  That includes packaging the candy, printing and cutting out the pieces, and adding the bows.  
THERE IS STILL TIME FOR THIS PROJECT !!  🙂
Merry Christmas everyone!!
I’m sharing my project on the following link parties:

Bow-it-All Tutorial * Big Bows with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hi there everyone.  Are ya ready for Christmas yet??!!
I am so NOT ready!   [sigh….]
I’ve had a few requests for a Bow-it-All Tutorial for BIG BOWS, so I pulled out my favorite toy bow making tool and some gorgeous ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and this is what I came up with.
For those who already own a Bow-it-All Tool, I hope you are having fun with it.  If you don’t have one yet, what are ya waiting for??!!
This bow is made with 1-1/2″ Silky Crush Ribbon which performed even better than I expected.  You’ll be amazed how little work there is to do after removing the bow from the Bow-it-All.  It practically fluffs itself.
This is a double-tail bow made with 1-1/2″ Red Gingham and 1-1/2″ Ruby Red Double-faced Satin.  
I embellished the center with a handmade paper flower.
Wouldn’t this look great on a holiday wreath or as a tree topper?
This is a big now made with Wired-Edge Ribbon.  Wired Edge ribbons create a beautiful large bow because the loops hold their shape so beautifully.
The center of this bow is embellished with a pretty Mulberry Flower.
Here is my video tutorial.

If you liked the video, it would be great if you could click the YouTube link right above on the screen beneath the video and go to YouTube.  

Once there, please like my video and leave a comment.  These things will help the ratings of the video and will help grow the reasonableribbon channel.  Also, I would love it if you would subscribe to my channel.

Now get that Bow-it-All Tool out and make some BIG BOWS ladies.  
These bows are perfect for holiday decorating and gift wrapping.
If you still don’t have a Bow-it-All Tool, you can always tell Santa he can get you one at Really Reasonable Ribbon.   🙂

Zutter Bow-it-All Tutorial * Easy Hair Bows with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hi everyone. 

 

You are going to LOVE this hair bow project because it’s really quick and easy and you can whip one up in minutes using your favorite ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  

Great for last minute Christmas gifts!

These were inspired by some hair bows that Donna Salazar created and she gave me her permission to do a tutorial on my take on how they were made.

I’ll also be doing a quick tutorial on the video on how I made the pretty paper flower centers for these bows. 

The first three bows were made with 7/8″ Organza Ribbon.
If you don’t have the dies or the time to create the paper flowers, use the embellishment of your choice.  Buttons make a quick and easy bow center.
The bow was made using 5/8″ Red Delicate Stitched Satin and 5/8″ Sheer Cherry Organza.
The bow below was made with 1-1/2″ Pink Netting and 5/8″ White Delicate Stitched Satin.
The flower in the center is the Spellbinder Donna Salazar Rose Creations Die and I will have a quick demo on how I create these flowers on my next video.
This bow is also made with 7/8″ Organza Ribbon.
Really Reasonable Ribbon also carries a large variety of Hair Clips for your hair bow projects.
Here is my video tutorial.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. 

 

I hope you are loving your Bow-it-All Tool!!
