Rudolph the Treat-Nosed Reindeer

I simply could not wait to share this little guy with you.  He is one of the very first additions to my brand new Etsy Shop:  

AmieKiger Mimi, Myself, and I Designs

This tag took a bit of time to create, and I have a stack of "not quite right" versions to prove it!  Getting everything all lined up was super-tricky.  It actually started out as a card idea that I saw somewhere, but I decided to turn it into a tag instead.

Isn't he cute?  I used CCR (the Cricut Craft Room free online design software at to manipulate the shapes on the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge.  I finally got everything sized just right so that it all fits together.  Assembling the little guy is pretty easy, actually after all the time it took designing him!  This is what the back looks like:

You pull the little tab out at the bottom to open up the window in the back.  This way it is easy to get to the candy without destroying the whole tag.  The pull-tab is snug enough that it won't fall out too.  I stamped the "To" and "From" in Cranberry Ink from the Very Merry Christmas My Acrylix set which was the Stamp of the Month for October.  Even though it isn't available anymore, you can still win this stamp set at my Christmas Card Workshop!  ;)

I would love to offer this design for others to use, so anyone who includes these Treat Cups (Z1778) as part of their order from my website or locally through me will be emailed the CCR file I used to make them!  You must have a Provocraft Cricut Expression, Expression 2 or Imagine Machine to use the file.  Also, you need to have the Art Philosophy Cartridge from Close to My Heart since all the cuts are on that cartridge.

Guess WHAT!?!?  I even made a video tutorial on how to make these!  :)  *squeals*

For my fellow consultants in the USA who might be interested in this cut file, I have put together a simple kit containing all the paper pieces needed to make one tag.  You may supply your own treat cups this way.  I will mail you the kit in an envelope and email you the CCR cut file so that you may make more!  The price of this kit is only $6 and includes the rights to make these with your customers at your own workshops.  The cut file is designed to cut enough pieces to make ten tags at a time, saving you paper and time!
