Reindeer Card

Step 1:

Step 3:

Score the left edge of the reindeer piece 1/4 inch from the edge.  Use a ruler and either a stylus or a bone folder to score.

This creates a nice fold line so the piece will open and close easily.

Step 4:

Punch a hole for a piece of the bakers twine in the red snowflake paper.  We are adding a little closure for the reindeer piece so it will stay closed.

Cut a piece of ribbon about 4 – 5 inches long and thread it from font to back.  Then tape it on the back side of the paper.

Punch a hole in the reindeer piece across from the ribbon and add your brad.  Don’t push the brad down all of the way.  Leave a little bit of room for the ribbon to wind around.

Step 5:

From the sticker sheet, grab the black sticker with all of the reindeer names.  Ink the edges then place it under the reindeer piece as a fun surprise when it is opened.
