Reindeer Candy canes

These cute batch of little reindeer peppermint cane holders are a FREE SVG cut file from my favorite on line store: - the cut file can be found here and downloaded if you have the SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot computer software which you can also purchase through, too.  You would also need a cutter: Silhouette is my choice of cutter to make these.  The finished size is 3-1/2" w x 3-1/4". There are two slits in the back to hold the basic candy cane.
Paper used: Recollections Kraft, white and red, with some chocolate color card stock. Those eyes are punched using a 1/8" hand punch (or a pen can be used as recommended by Mary at SU Close to Cocoa ink is also used to sponge the Kraft edges.
 Here's the back
Here you can see how the cane is slipped through the back slits (do this before attaching the "face".) The tied ribbon is made then attached with a mini glue dot.
These were fun gifts to give out or attach to presents.
