Step 3: Cut the waste areas from the flaps.

Use a sharp knife to cut the flaps.


It is easy to "overshoot" your cut and have your knife turn on you. Also, the double-thickness cardboard used for computer cartons will dull a box cutter very fast. Snap off new knife edges often, to have a sharp cutting edge.

Step 4: Make the reindeer's head

Use one of the waste pieces of cardboard to cut out a head.

Do full-cuts through parts of the drawn lines, but only cut the top layer of the cardboard in the middle of the lines (It will make sense when you see the picture).

Remove the waste areas to make two flaps on the sides of the head.

Step 6: Make the antlers

Use some more of the waste cardboard to make the antlers.

Take a look at some reindeer (or pictures of them) to see what the antlers are SUPPOSED to look like.
...then again, the owners of those reindeer might not like me walking their animals home to function as pets.

Thus I decided to make one of these boxy ones after all:
Would probably make myself several of these if we hadn't real reindeer running rampant in Finland.
