Reindeer Ornament Gift Box

By now, you probably have seen the nifty box you can make by using the sizzix scallop envelope die.  I found a great step by step tutorial on assembling the box HERE .  I used chocolate chip cardstock for my envelopes and cut 4 pieces of designer papers 2" x 4" in size.  Attach these pieces on the sides of the envelopes before folding down the flaps and securing with sticky strip (as shown in the web tutorial).

These awesome ornaments are from Ikea.  They are non breakable and come in several colors.  I applied a snowflake Decor Element and tied on some white satin ribbon to dress it up.  For the reindeer, you will actually need a sizzix die for the antlers.  I liked this look better than a traditional punched piece.

You will need the following Stampin' Up! punches and sizzix die:

Sizzix Bigz Tulipe die for antlers - cut in creamy caramel
Wide Oval for head - close to cocoa
Ornament for body - close to cocoa
3/4" Circle for hooves - basic black
5 Petal Flower for ears and nose - cocoa & black
teardrop punch by martha stewart (or fiscars) for eyes in black
Modern Label for sign - ruby red

Cut off 2 petals on the 5 petal flower for the ears.  Cut part of one petal for the nose in black.  Sponge all pieces in chocolate chip. Glue ears onto back of head.  Glue on antlers, nose and eyes.  Add highlights to eyes with uni-bal white gel pen. Draw on face details with black zig pen.  Glue head onto ornament (slightly tilted).  Glue onto front of box (from inside).  Stamp and punch "sign".  Attach to front of box with dimensionals. Cut the bottoms off of the black circles for the hooves.  Attach to the front of box with dimensionals.
This little guy is rather easy to make.  Fill the box with candies and other treats if you like.

having trouble finding it?

Lots of people are having a hard time finding the MS punch. It must have been discontinued? Fiscars makes a teardrop punch that is almost exactly the same.
