Notes to keep in mind:
-Make sure you are having fun. That is what paper craft is all about?
Briefly read before starting:
Lets get started.
Carefully cut each individual piece.
Once all of the exterior lines of the piece are cut out, score the
Here we are cutting out the body and a part of the deer tail
Careful on the curve of the legs. If you feel more comfortable with a scissors go ahead and use a scissors
Once again score the interior pieces and fold.
Cut out small pieces like the ears and tail.
Now cut out inside of legs
The final piece we are cutting out is the head. It is a little tricky because it has more curves than
For the fold lines of the head I am using the Balled Embossing Stylus
instead of the craft knife. I did this ecause paper tends to separate
or fray if it has a cut line on a curved area instead of just a score
If the head is still hard to fold score the back also.
Grab a small piece of scrap paper to hold the glue
Using the left over excess pieces of paper cut a few strips and cut a
angle on the strips similar to the blade of your craft knife.
I bend the little strip of scrap paper so it is easier to pick up. Use
this to spread the glue on your model.
Glue the front and back of tail together
Glue the inside part of the legs to the outside part of the legs
Hold firmly for about 15 seconds
Cut the lines where the neck will be inserted
Glue the body together. For tough to reach areas hold tabs together
with stick or a tweezers
Glue neck together. Hold part together with a small stick until they are dry
Apply the back of the ears to the head.
Now form the head. Glue the top of the head together first.
While the head is drying you can put the neck and body together
Glue on tail and clamp with tweezers until dry
Now glue the front part of the deer head together. Putting this piece
together can be a little tricky. Once you have a good grip on glued
tabs hold until secure.
There you go. You can leave the head unglued or rotate it into the
desired position you like and glue it.
