These “pop open” cards are our favorite, the heart flower craft we’ve been doing a while has been a hit, so more fun designs were in order. As Christmas time is the best time to hand out cards (or crafts with a message), a reindeer drawing had to be made.

You can color this man into a regular jolly deer, or by coloring the nose red (and even adding some glitter) turn him into Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Either way, this one is sure to impress.

I designed a simple template, which can be used as a stencil and have kids design their own reindeer face, or they can color it in and use as is. I also hope they will be inspired to design their own festive (or other) characters.

Let’s make Christmas crafts!

How to Make This Paper Reindeer Craft with a Printable Template

What do you need:

  • our printable template (you can get it at the very end of this tutorial)
  • coloring supplies (pencils, markers, etc.)
  • plain printing paper
  • the scissors
  • glue
  • craft stick
  • mini clothespin or paper clips
  • clear tape (if using paper clips)

Optional: glitter or glitter glue

Watch the video tutorial

Or follow these step by step instructions

Print our model (you can retrieve it at the end of this tutorial).

Color in all rooms.

Cut out all parts of the model.

Fold along the dotted lines on the template.

Fold each fold tightly.

The next step is a little tricky to explain (best is to watch the video tutorial posted above).

There were two diagonal folds – and one horizontal. Focus on the horizontal fold – you need to tuck it in.

You have to push both sides inside. You should see a face shape.

Write your message on the card (we did this after sticking the craft stick, which wasn’t the best choice ;).

Apply glue to one end of the craft stick.

Glue it on the back of the reindeer head.

It’s time to decorate your reindeer. Glue the bow under the head, on the stick.

Glue the antlers and ears inside the paper craft.

The last detail is the Christmas hat. This hat is what makes this card so fun – because it will keep it closed until the recipient opens it to read the message.

Glue it on a mini clothespin (regular glue) or on a paperclip (with clear tape).

Close the card and clip the hat.

Finished!
