Rudolph "Spares"

Happy Thanksgiving!!! Even though it's Thanksgiving Day, it's Thursday, and that means another Digital Delights inspiration piece!

Can you believe that Christmas is ONLY a month away?!?! Here is a really cute little stocking-stuffer or little gift that's fun and easy to make! We've all read the story about Rudolph and his shiny nose leading Santa's sleigh through the fog, but what happens if his nose burns out?? Hmm, have you ever though about that?? Well, here is the solution- "spares" for his red shiny nose!! (I apologize for the poor pictures- I just couldn't get rid of the glare from the flash!)

I used the reindeer from Digital Delights' Christmas Toppers 1. Isn't he cute? Here's a close-up:

On the back is this poem:

Rudolph with your nose so bright
In case your light should dim,
I've made these handy "Rudolph Spares"
tucked safe inside this tin.

Here is a different poem in case you like this one better:

Rudolph has a job to do
Every Christmas Eve,
it's true.
His nose will always
light the way
For Santa and his tiny sleigh,
But if his nose should
ever go out
Don't cry or whine
or yell or pout.
Take out this jar and use a bit.
From Rudolph's
Red Nose repair kit!
