Long Cellophane Bag Gift Treat with a Punch Art Reindeer Bag Topper

Reindeer Punch Art Bag Topper with Stampin'UP! punches
This was my Free Gift to the demonstrators who participated in my Punch Art Trade. I always try to do a little extra for the demos who participate in my mail-in trade because they have the added expense of the postage. Since the theme this time was Punch Art I made this Reindeer Punch Art Bag Topper.

What is a Punch Art Trade? Click here if you missed Saturday's post with the Punch Art Dog. One of the advantages of being a demonstrator is that we trade our creations with each other. A group of us got together and made cards with the "recipe" for the punch art. There are lots of other advantages of being a demonstrator. Contact me for more information or  click here.
Reindeer Punch Art Bag Topper with Stampin'UP! punches and Long Cellophane Bags
The Head is made with the Pennant Punch (catalog p. 213). I punched the smaller triangle out of Crumb Cake and the larger (scalloped) triangle out of Chocolate Chip.

The antlers and ears are made with the 2-Step Bird Punch (catalog p.213). Isn't it fun to use punches in a different way than what they were intended?  The Nose is a 1/4" circle punched in red and the eyes are 1/8" circles punched in black.

The background for the head is a white oval cut with the Extra Large Oval Punch (catalog p.212) and set on a Lucky Limeade circle cut with the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch.

This project is called a Bag Topper. Just a little something to top off a bag of treats. What I used here is the new Long Cellophane Bags found in the mini catalog on page 11. At only $2.50 for a package of 50 you'll definitely want to add at least one package of these to your next order.

These bags make great gifts for teachers, neighbors and coworkers. Think what your neighbors and coworkers will say when you give them one of these treats. Check this photo of a Punch Art Flower used as a Bag Topper. There are tons of ways to decorate them - let your imagination go wild!

There are also lots of things you can fill these bags with! Anything the right length and diameter. Try pencils, or twizzlers or a skein of embroidery floss.
