The best part is, you can use them for all sorts of small treats.  Like what?  What do you put in Christmas treat bags?

When it comes to filling Christmas treat bags, nobody wants a bag full of coal (at least not the kind that comes from Santa's workshop). So what IS the best way to fill those goodie bags? Here are a few ideas to get you started:

For the health conscious: packets of nuts or seeds, dried fruit, or even a mini fitness tracker.

For the sweet tooth: candy canes, chocolate coins, or maybe even a small cake or cupcake. Just be sure to wrap it up well so it doesn't make a mess in the bag.

For the kid who has everything: a gift card to their favorite restaurant or store, tickets to a local attraction, or even a homemade coupon for an afternoon of fun activities.

Step 4
Place the reindeer front and back, with wrong sides together.  Stitch around the outside of the reindeer at 1/4".  Leaving the space between the ears open.  This is where you'll place your treats.

If you need more space to put your treat inside, don't sew all the way up the inside of the ears.
