Reindeer Favor Tins - Burton Avenue

Hello Sugar Bee Readers! I'm so excited to be here today sharing these adorable reindeer favor tins with you!
 I'm Angie and this is my family (yep, 7 kids). They keep me busy! I love blogging because it gives me a chance to take a break from the day to day tasks of being a mom and do something creative.  I blog over at Burton Avenue where I share fun and easy projects you can make using a digital cutter. I also offer a free digital cut file every Friday. I hope you'll stop on over!
 Christmas will be here soon and if you're in need of a cute favor to use at a table or to give away to friends and family, these reindeer favor tins are the perfect project for you!
Here is what you'll need:
Cardstock (I used red, green and 3 shades of brown)
Googly Eyes
Foam Sticky Tabs
Favor Tins (I got mine at Michaels in the wedding section)
Glue
Distress Ink (optional)

Here is what you'll do:
First, you'll need to cut out the pieces and, if desired, distress with ink. I used my digital cutter, but most of the shapes are pretty simple and can be cut by hand. You can download the digital cut file and printable template here.
Next, assemble and glue the head, hooves, and back as shown. I just used a black marker to draw the line below the nose.
Use the foam tabs to attach the circle (without the tail) to the lid and also the feet. Make sure when you stand it up, the feet extend past the tin and touch your working surface. This will keep your tin from rolling.
  Use the foam tabs to attach the head. Glue the circle with the tail onto the back of the tin.  Fill with some Christmas colored candy and these cute reindeer favors are ready to go!
Aren't they adorable? I hope you love them as much as I do!
 Thanks for letting me visit today! Be sure to pop on over to Burton Avenue and check out my other projects.

 Here are a couple of my favorites.
