How to make a 3D Reindeer Card DIY
Personally, I think this is a REALLY easy Card DIY.. and the video shows how quick and straightforward this 3d Reindeer Card for Kids really is to make.. but I have added written instruction down below too if you find that easier!
Paper Reindeer Head, Tails and Legs
- Print out your Reindeer features.
- Decide whether your Reindeer will look left or right. You only need to cut out ONE head, one tail one pair of legs.
Make your Paper Reindeer “Bauble” Body
- Cut 9-10 brown circles (you can use our template for size or use the ready to print brown circles)
- Fold the circles in half.
- Add glue to one half of the circle and lay a second circle on top.
- Continue until all half circles a stuck together.
We are now ready to assemble your card.
Final Assembly of your Reindeer Pop Up Card
- Make sure you have NOT closed the paper bauble “in on itself”.
- Position the paper bauble in the centre of the card and glue the bottom half of it down (not the top, as you still want to slide “bits” in)
- Now you can add glue to your Reindeer head and slide it under the bauble on the right.
- Repeat the same ofr the tail. IF you have glued the whole bauble down already – don’t worry, just glue it on top of the last piece of paper, it will still look nice!
- Finally postion your reindeers’s legs and also glue them in place.
- If wanted, added a little stars to your sky.
Your 3D Reindeer Card is now finished!!! Isn’t it adorable. If you want you can fill it with confetti stars for some extra special sparkle…
