Oh Dear, Blitzen!

It’s time for the Tuesday 3D Challenge Group project, at Paper Craft Planet.  I’m hoping you will view this as a fun Christmas/Winter craft, after all, no animals were harmed in the making of the project.

I’ve seen quite a few free versions of a paper deer/animal head craft.  This is an amalgamation of a few that I liked, with modifications, that my sons & hunting hubbie all approved.

You could of course add colour & add it to a gift box or a wine bottle maybe:

It’s a pretty simple piece of construction.

Make something & add it to the gallery at Paper Craft Planet, with the tag 3d192 & I’ll find it & put it in an album for all to see.

If you’d like to print out the Deer, here you go, 8 1/2 by 11″.  Be sure to cut 2 of the head & ears & yolk (the pink):

If you feel like following the ramblings of a mum of 3, who was multi-tasking with French Devoirs and trying to write up instructions … good luck:

Oh yes, you’ll need the plaque.  I cut it twice, sized it just a bit bigger the second time for a matte effect.

If you’re like me & enjoy using Scalable Vector Graphics … Here ya go, you can download them here:

Chocolates, peppermints, earrings ;)   Something for the teachers or that friend who is always there for you.

Follow the Star

Well with Halloween behind us & the weather getting nippy here, it’s time to start thinking about Christmas.  For this week’s 3D Tuesday at Paper Craft Planet, 3d189, Christmas Stars are in the Forum! I’ve seen many 3D stars; however this one, found on Pinterest, with a link to the instructions and template was super cute.

The template provided is easy to cut out by hand, it’s just straight lines.  It can be used with either the suggested mosaic cut outs, a hand punch, stamp it or  leave it plain.

When you have it cut out, use a bone folder & scoring plate if you have it, to give it a clean line.

Fold & secure each tip first.  Can you see where I put the super strong red two sided tape?  It’s on the side with the tapered corner.

After you have the 5 “pyramids”, you then secure them to each other.

That’s it, that’s all.  Most of the work is in the scoring, IMO.

Have fun with this one.
