Christmas treats for my deer? LAST DAY OF BLOG CANDY!!!!

This is a repurposed candy container from Sam's Club.  I used some black, white, and silver deer wrapping paper around the entire container and trimmed the top and bottom with white ribbon and some black strips of paper that I border punched using the Martha Stewart snowflake border punch.  
On the front, I mounted a deer cut from the Winter Wonderland cartridge, deer2, at 4" using My Mind's Eye Lost and Found paper.  I also cut the shadow for the deer but, had to trim off the legs that would have been added had a cut all of the deer layers.  I mounted the deer on a printed sheet from Theresa Collins 'Christmas Home' set that I also cut using the Martha Stewart border punch and I also used the corner punch as well (one of the punch around the page sets).
For the lid, I cut a circle the size of the lid and made a bow for the top and then tied the bow with a long thin ribbon and pulled that extra ribbon through a hole poked in the center of the paper circle.   I taped down the ribbon string and then attached the circle (with bow attached) with my ATG gun.
