Reindeer Favors with a Favorite Reindeer

I get to host Christmas Dinner every year.  Anywhere from 12 to 25 family members are invited, and sometimes I invite the stray neighbor, cousin, in-law or friend to join in the festivities.
I always try to come up with a cute favor for each person, and this year I decided to run with a favor box of treats showcasing a QKD stamped image called Rudolph Decor from our very own Coriander Shea.
As soon as I stamped and colored this fur ball of fun, I knew I had to glitz up his Christmas lights with Stickles for that added shine that every Christmas begs for.  I fussy-cut the image and popped him onto my plain brown box, after first inking the edges and adding a white Christmas tree border.  I cut this border with my new punch system from CTMH.  Since the embellishments are minimal, I added some ink to the front panel behind Rudolph.
I originally wanted to use just the dark brown raffia to tie up my boxes, but that red and green dash of color works well.  I think my guests will get a kick out of these cute boxes.
For more Christmas fun, check out Coriander's newest releases, as well as all the rest of her awesome stamps, at the QKD Shoppe!!

They were actually favors at a wedding I attended, repurposed for my Chriustmas dinner guests. I took out the seed packet insode from the wedding, and replaced it with chocolate kisses!
