I have always wanted a Cardboard Deer Head like the ones you see at trendy shops or at http://www.cardboardsafari.com/shop/product_cbs1002.php but couldn't justify spending money on something I know I can make myself.

In this Instructable I will show you how I made my Cardboard Deer Head. Its not perfect but I am happy with it. The total project took me about 10+ hours off and on. My best advice is too take breaks and don't get frustrated (cutting gets a little tedious).  If you had a laser cutter this would probably take you less than 30 minutes of actual work.

Cutting cardboard can be difficult. Please be careful to not cut yourself, always cut away from yourself!

Shall we get started?

Step 1: Supplies and Materials

The Best part about this Instructable? ITS FREE! That"s right free, that is of course if you have most of the supplies on hand.

Box Cutter
Hot glue gun
Tape (masking tape works well)

Optional (but recommended)

Cardboard (best if it is clean, not bent up, and doesn't have anything printed on it)
Template printed off (I attached a .zip file with the template scaled so you can print at any standard printer. Also a much larger .png file if you want to scale up or play with)
Pop top
<p>Redrawn and scaled for 3 mm plywood. Worked out great.</p><p>DXF file available if anyone wants it.</p>
