I just love corrugated paper, and there are a million and one uses for it! Agree?
I saw some cute cardstock 3D reindeer and a sleigh in a magazine...that I can't remember the name of now...and I wanted to make some ornaments like them but use corrugated instead. These went together in a flash, and would be a great project to make with the kids and/or grandkids! Enjoy the tutorial, and if you make some too, send me some pics!
|It's difficult to see all the details while they are on the tree, so I thought this might help.|
|Fold two pieces of 6x12 inch corrugated paper in half short ways, with the corrugated on the outside, and folded so the lines are going vertically. Die cut each folded piece with Tim Holtz's Sizzix Reindeer Flight Die, fold side up and going vertically...you know, to make your deer appear thinner...;0)!!! You will have eight deer, four of each design, and pairs that match up correctly with corrugated paper on the outside...make sense? Open each scrap paper up, and place the middle part on the Tim's Branch Tree Die to cover most of the tree up. Die cut both pieces. These will be for your antlers.|
|Rub a Walnut Stain Distress Ink Pad over all the raised corrugated areas of all the pieces. Ink the edges of one set of each of the deer (a set being the back and front) using Vintage Photo.|
|Adhere the legs and ears on each respective deer...I used Ranger's Glue N Seal. They have now come to life!|
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
