Introduction: Faceted Deer on A4 or 8.5 X 11 Paper

This Instructable is completely based off Krummrey's Faceted Deer creation with my own twist on resizing the paper, please refer to this post for template and details. https://www.instructables.com/id/Create-faceted-pap...

That original PDF template is designed for A3 paper which a lot of us would not be able to print at home. If you print it as A4 / 8.5 x 11 paper, it will reduce the final size by 75%, the objects then became too small to assemble and the head mount would be too small.

I was able to resize the file to 75% and print them on 8.5 x 11 paper, this way the mount would be 25% smaller but still look amazing. Each PDF page would be split into 2 pages, all you need to do is to tape them together before sticking it onto the card stock. If you print directly on the card stock, you will need to reinforce the seams with more cardboard strips.

Step 1: PDF Printer Settings

Based on my research A3 is twice the size of A4 and A4 is APPROX same size as our US Letter 8.5 x 11

So, I reduced the A3 to 75% and print it on two 8.5 x 11 paper. Final Product is about 2 feet Tall.

Good Luck and have fun!

SPOILER ALERT!!

***It is a PITA to cut and glue! ***

***But its all worth it! It took me one whole day, I would say about 15 hours to finish.***
