If you are hosting a family BBQ at your home to celebrate the birth of your nation, these printable Party circles would come handy. Sometimes the simpler ideas are the best. Look at this cute ideas by Paper Source. You simply glue a star on either side of a long toothpick to create a cupcake topper or to serve appetizer bites.
You could use the same concept with a Moose Hole punch for a Canada Day party. I would glue the toothpick on the front leg.

More Canada Day ideas
+ A girlie twist of the Canadian moose was designed by Genevieve of Celebrate Today. She demonstrated that you do not have to stick to a purely red and white color palette to celebrate Canada Day. The template for her printable party circles are free. From her instructions, I understood that the moose circle requires a 2″ circle punch. Therefore, you will need a scallop rim that is bigger than 2″. My guess would be to use something like the 3-inch scallop circle, which apparently makes a shape of 2.5 inches. But since I did not try it, this remains only a guess from my part.

KIm, thanks for sharing. These ideas were fabulous and inspirational. We had an amazing Canada Theme Party at the office today. We used the printable circles as napkin rings. Check it out: http://canadianhostess.blogspot.com/2010/06/celebrating-canada-day-in-style.html
