Christmas on Repeat – M&Ms Treat Tubes

Every Christmas I end up making treat tubes because they are just so irresistible!  Who doesn’t love chocolate & cute characters???

They are always popular – just ask Helen from my Tuesday class!

This is my 2015 line-up, starting with a quick punch art reindeer. With the addition of the Tree Builder punch to the range, it’s now even easier to make antlers for your reindeer.

Just cut the middle branch from the tree trunk and you have perfect antlers (or leave the middle branch in for a fuller antler finish!).  Add a legless owl & eyes from the Owl Builder punch, and a sparkly 1/2″ circle nose and your punch art reindeer is done!

If you’re not a fan of punch art (or want to make lots of these little cuties), the Snow Place stamp set and coordinating Snow Friends framelits make super easy toppers.  I used the penguins with a Christmas hat & candy cane, but the snowman would also look great!

With Christmas being all about sparkle, I couldn’t resist a glittery version using the soon to be retired Black Glimmer paper…

The hardest part about making these is keeping the M&M supply a secret from Mr Papercraft.  Yes, he steals my craft chocolate! Maybe because there’s no calories in craft chocolate???  Kelly x
