Picture of DIY Cardboard Deer Head
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.

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

Shall we get started?

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.

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

Optional (but recommended)
Exacto-knife

Materials
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

Step 2: Cut out the template

Start by cutting out the template. (I provided a .zip file on the last step)

Once you cut out all the pieces tape together any pieces that weren't able to be printed on one page. ( The head with the antlers and the middle) Look at the closer images for reference. If you have any questions feel free to ask

After you have taped the pieces together that needed to be, loop your masking tape on the back of the template pieces.

Using the dxf file provided by other users (thanks!), I made this from CB flute doublewall corrugated board. Board thickness is 5/16". Cut using a robotic cutting table. It's a little wobbly at the base, but I'm going to see if hot gluing some of the joints will improve that.
