How to make paper reindeer toys

What you need:

  • brown cardstock (textured)
  • brown cardboard (smooth)
  • red paper (or red pom-poms)
  • white cardboard
  • black lining
  • drag
  • glue
  • The ruler is circular

Materials used

Step-by-step instructions

Trace or print out the box template you will need for the project.

Step 1

Draw a similar box design on brown cardstock (with texture).

Step 2

Cut it out with scissors.

Step 3

Fold the paper where the lines are.

Step 4

Apply a little glue ONLY to the parallel folds you see in this picture (my three fingers pressed into the folds and the glue stick shows you where to apply the glue).

Step 5

Assemble the box and wait until the glue sets.

Step 6

Close the box.

Step 7

Take smooth brown cardstock and draw two antlers.

Step 8

Cut them out with scissors.

Step 9

Make a fold on each horn.

Step 10

Apply some glue on the antlers and stick them to the box (glue one on the left side and one on the right side of the box).

Step 11

Draw two circular eyes and use scissors to cut out the eyes.

Step 13

Glue your eyes to the box.

Step 14

Take a piece of red paper and form a small ball.

That would be the reindeer’s nose. You can even use a red pom-pom to make the nose instead of a piece of paper.

Step 15

Apply a little glue to the red nose and stick it in the middle of the box, between the eyes.

Step 16

Our reindeer will look like this. Now you can put some treats in a box or a Christmas note.

Step 17

We like to put snacks inside it.
