I had hoped that the deer would get some positive feedback. But what really happened totally blew my mind. More than 100.000 views and more than 1.000 likes. Thank you so much!!

That's why I wanted to share an other template with you: The Moose I was talking about in the comments. Some folks asked if they could build that too.

To make it a little more educating, here the tale of me failing to build it. Not because the design is flawed, but because I used builders foam in an attempt to make it more stable.
So enjoy my "How NOT to do it" and my attempt to save the work I had put into it.

The template is attached to the last step, for those of you that can't wait... ;)

Step 1: What I had...

I got pretty far with my moose. The antlers were done, the neck and head. I even had both of them glued together.

But the antlers were too heavy. The head would dent in under the weight. So I had the great idea to use builders foam to stabilize everything by filling the head (at least the sides) with foam.
<p>done it<br>looks great<br>but it's kindda difficult on the antlers assembly because of the unfolding<br>i'm looking forward for more models like this,,,:)</p>
<p>Whoohoo. You're the first to make one. Awesome!<br>Yes, the antlers are delicate, but they are, what makes the model so special. That's why I kept them more detailed.</p>
<p>i think it will be easier if it's been unfolded in order,,&amp; it's kinda tricky to close some parts (or it's just i printed printed this on A4)<br><br>i'm just not used to build one like this<br>&amp; i put a roll of thick paper inside the top of the head (inner side of the antlers to hold them straight) so they will not move around</p>
<p>Doing it in A4 does make it harder. The pieces are smaller than intended. And when I unfolded them I didn't know that I would be sharing the templates. The next one I'll do will me more &quot;userfriendly&quot;.</p>
<p>hi. cant found the template in pdf of this moose. can you help me? the links are broken. could you please send me by mail? pimente@ya.ru</p>
<p>Hi, I was wondering how you (or anybody else who made it) solved the problem of the antlers being too heavy for the head without the foam?</p>
<p>Hey :) First of all, I have to say that this is just amazing. I was just wondering in which order you should cut and unfold the pieces. </p>
<p>Hallo, ich w&uuml;rde gerne einen zweifarbigen Elch basteln, bin mir aber beim Ausdrucken nicht sicher, welche Teile (wie viele Seiten) zum Geweih geh&ouml;ren. Danke f&uuml;r die tolle Vorlage!</p>
<p>Genau lesen. Steht alles da. Hab's gerade nicht im Kopf. Aber es steht irgendwo...</p>
<p>hey Jan, deine Hase ist spitze!!! hast du auch vorlagen f&uuml;r v&ouml;gel, k&uuml;he oder f&uuml;chse? </p>
<p>Nein, aber eine Anleitung nach der eine andere Frau in Deutschland so was schon gemacht hat. ;)</p>
<p>Hello , I am grateful firstly for allowing people like me acquire the templates at no cost , since I saw a model of FOX remains highly impressed but the possibility of acquiring the templates was nil. <br> <br>I congratulate you on the great work you do , I acknowledge that you print a thought beyond what each of your deeds passion . again , thanks for sharing. <br> <br>want if not too much abuse, will create a paper craft of a charging bull . I 'm from the country and would be great to decorate with something majestic as it is. <br> <br>PS: I do not speak English , I use google translator to leave the message . I mention this in case something is not understood </p>
<p>Sorry, I don't have the time to do requests.But go ahead and try to dou it yourself. That's what the tutorial is for. ;)</p>
<p>hi. cant found the template in pdf of this moose. can you help me? the links are broken.</p>
<p>The link works for me. Try again.</p>
<p>can you send me a pdf on pimente@ya.ru pls? error 404 on links in comments(cant download pdf, coz i'm not a &quot;pro&quot; member)</p><p>help me?</p>
<p>My girlfriend and I made one with A4. Took us 10 hours, but are very happy with the result.</p><p>Tried glue on 1 edge but ran to the store for tape right after that. Great project!</p>
<p>This is so cool, Im so sorry but could you please send me by mail. because i can download it(<br></p>
<p>Swedish colors, we should sell it to IKEA. They had toy-elks when I was a kid, maybe it's time for them to have one again... ;)<br>Great to hear that you had fun making it. Great experience to work on such a project as a couple.</p>
<p>Krummrey--Thank you so much for the tutorial. I was wondering... which way are the folds supposed to go? I see dot-dash and regular dash lines and I could find which were supposed to be hill and which valley folds. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.</p>
<p>I made a new tutorial with your and other questions answered. Take a look:<br>http://www.instructables.com/id/Bunnies-PapercraftPepakura-Help-Desk/</p>
<p>Hi ! congrats for your nice tutorial, looks really great ;)<br>I would like do reproduce that thing :</p><p> <a href="http://poppinette.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/assembli-paper-dog.jpg" rel="nofollow">http://poppinette.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/a...</a><br><br>This project is a bit similar to your (less complex I think) and I made the 3D model corresponding to it. I share it at that link : </p><p><a href="https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13164187/bear.obj" rel="nofollow">https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13164187/bear....</a></p><p>Feel free to download and use it, but I would like to ask you if someone could help me to unfold it with Pepakura... I'm new to this soft, and I would like avoid so much folding etc... I'm pretty sure that we can make it out with a minimum au 3 different papercuts, and assemble it together. <br><br>If anyone of you are interested in that or as the answer to help me, please contact me at rv.marmillot@gmail.com<br><br>If it works, I will post some compete tutorial about it ;)<br><br>Thanks,<br><br>Herv&eacute; from France</p>
Not able to download the bear. can you please upload it again. Thanks. I can't wait to make it, it looks great
<p>Just started, which lines are folded outwards? and which ones are folded inwards? Thanks!</p>
<p>Depends on which way you want to build it. with the numbers inside (as I do) or on the outside (which is easier). Start with the antlers. Then you'll see right away which way it goes.</p>
How do I put this together? I have the printed pages, but once they're cut and folded, how do they attach to one another?
<p>Just glue them together with the flaps.</p>
<p>Please tell me, if I print PDF on A3 paper,will numbers on paper be visible on finished project?</p>
<p>Just turn the paper around and build it inside out. Then the numbers will be on the inside.</p>
<p>Please tell me, if I print PDF on A3 paper,will numbers on paper be visible on finished project?</p>

<p>Sorry I have just one question, which lines are folded outwards and which ones are folded inwards?</p>
<p>of which pages are elk horns?</p>
<p>Ola como fa&ccedil;o para consegui esse molde ?????/teria como voc&ecirc; mandar para mim pois n&atilde;o estou conseguindo....</p>
<p>Again, please ask in german or english.</p>
<p>wymiśliłem że w agencji reklamowej mi to wydrukują na a3 tylko proszę o link do pobrania w tej wielkości </p>
<p>Sprawdź może przez program pepakura, tylko znajdz glowe w formacie do tego programu:)</p>
<p>Sorry, I don't speak polish. Please try to ask in german or english.</p>
<p>what paper size is recommended in this papercraft? i only have letter and a4 paper here..</p>
<p>I make them on A3. It's the largest I can print and I have less waste that way. You could print it out on A4. It'll be a little smaller then. Just cut the flaps a little larger so you have enough room to spread the glue on.</p>
Ok. Thank you very much :)
<p>That thing is completely awesome and I want one badly. Where have I seen this before? Do you have an Etsy store?</p>
<p>I've been asked that before. The thing is, these things get so big, it's hard to send them for a reasonable price. I could offer pre-cut cardstock. Would that help?</p>
<p>Made it! I used small but strong magnets to hold hard to reach pieces together while I waited for the glue to dry. I started using double sided tape but that began to come undone so I switched it out for Tacky Glue which was much stronger but slowed down the process considerably. Thanks for a great Instructable!!! </p>
<p>Smart Idea with the magnets. :)</p>
<p>Can I get this template?</p>
<p>Sure: &quot;The template is attached to the last step, for those of you that can't wait... ;)&quot;</p>
<p>My students have truly enjoyed the project and are proud of their pieces. Thank you so much for sharing these with us all. </p>
<p>Wow, it turned into a school project. :D How many did you and your students make? I'd love to hear more, what grade are they in, as an extracurricular activity? Do you have more pictures to share for me?</p>
