Candy Cane Reindeer & Teacher Gift Frame

This past week we worked on another craft project for school.  Since Friday was the last day, we made candy cane reindeer for MJ to take to school and give to his friends and teachers.  It was a family project and even little Sofi got involved.  She would get two candy canes and hold them while I wrapped them with brown yarn.  My hubby would cut the yarn and MJ would create the face all on his own with glue dots.  He was so proud that he had such an important job!  Check out how cute...

But next I had to figure out how he was going to transport them to school.  I was searching in my scrap room when in runs MJ, "Mama, I found a bucket we can use" which cracked me up - he is so resourceful!  When I looked at it, though, it had an easter bunny, so it was time to scrap it.  I let MJ choose the paper to cover it with and then we added a snowman that he had made of foam and I cut a tag on the Cricut and wrote in the title.  Here it is...

For his teacher, I decided to create a 12x12 frame.  I had made one before for his previous teacher, so I used the same idea and tweaked it a little.  I wrote her a heartfelt message and glued it to the back of the frame as well.  Take a look at the finished product...

I'll have more "scrappy" things to share tomorrow.  Thanks for stopping by!
