Its all .....poop

Now a few people have joked about my first gift idea.... Yes you read correct its poop....

For my first day on CCW Christmas Countdown
I wanted to share an idea that ive been sharing with friends and family for a couple of years. Its soooo simple to make . You dont really need any special equipment apart from a food bag or maybe even a card cello bag or the smaller ones i made up are ATC cello bags. Card for the topper. I used MME Holly Jolly, Reindeer fly and Candy canes available here

You will need :

A cello bag
Card for your topper

To make my labels i used a nestie ( labels 1 and labels 8) But you can measure the width of your bag and make a square or shaped topper to fit your cello bag .

To Make:

Pop the poop into the cello bag.
Stick the topper (folded in half) to the back of the bag. Some i stapled and some were stuck with DST.
Fold your topper over and stick the front with DST
Decorate, as you wish

Theres a few poems that you can choose, if you wish. I found them online so not sure who the author was . You can either hand write or print out or even leave it off all together, your choice

1. Can be used for either Snowman/ Reindeer or Penguin Poop

I hear that you've been naughty.
So listen heres the scoop.
I'm running short of coal this year,
So you get Snowman Poop


2. For Reindeer poop

I woke up with such a scare, when i heard Santa call.
'Now dash away, dash away, dash away all'.
I ran to the lawn and in the snowy white drifts.
Those nasty little reindeer ,had left little gifts.

I got an old shovel and started to scoop
Neat little piles of 'Reindeer Poop'.
But to throw them away seemed such a waste.
So i saved them thinking,you might like a taste.

As i finished my task,which took quite a while.
Old Santa passed by and he sheepishly smiled.
And i heard him exclaim,as he rose to the sky.
'Well they're not potty trained but at least they can fly.'

Below are an example of some poop i have made this year:

Reindeer poop is using Maltesers and paynes mint poppets.
Snowman poop is using Mini Marshmallows and mint imperials

I hope youve enjoyed my little thrifty gift idea.

Dont forget to link back to CCW and leave a comment on my blog also ( with the link to your post) with any errr 'poop' that you make.

At the end of CCW Christmas Countdown.
I will be adding names to a draw to win a small prize, So if you make one of my gift ideas dont forget to leave a comment. The gift shall arrive with you in time for Christmas.
