Reindeer Poop! I know it's not the best caption, but it gets your attention doesn't it.

Ok, so it's not really Reindeer Poop, but another item for my Craft Fairs that the kids really seem to like. 
My Reindeer Poop was created by filling a medium cellophane bag with chocolate raisinets.  The bag was a bit larger than I wanted it to be so I trimmed off an inch from the top.  To keep it closed I ran a piece of Old Olive Cardstock through my Big Shot using the Top Note Bigz Die and then embossing the cut piece with the retired Snowburst Embossing Folder.  I printed out the saying on my computer, and then cut it down to fit on the Top Note Die.  I added my little reindeer and then some Real Red Ribbon to dress it up. 
I have seen several versions of this fun treat, and for me, tying the ribbon through the top of the Top Note Die seemed like a nice way to not only decorate it, but also makes it convenient to carry.
The following were used:
Cardstock:  Old Olive #100702, Whisper White #100730, Real Red #102482
Ink:  Chocolate Chip #126979    Marker:  Real Red #100052

Ribbon:  Real Red 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain #127865
Punches:  Postage Stamp #122344, 1" Square #124094
Tools:  Big Shot #113439, Top Note Bigz Die #113463
Packaging:  4" x 6" Cellophane Bags #102757
