Introduction: Yet Another Deer Head Papercraft

This is a yet another deer head papercraft . It is different from an amazing instructable create-faceted-paper-objects .

Why did I rebuild a wheel ?

In krummrey's Create faceted papercraft-objects instructable, the deer head model used by krummrey, is not symmetrical. So from the front view, the deer head turn left a little.

When I find a symmetrical deer head on website : , I followed the krummrey's instructable to make this deer head papercraft .

Just download attached pdf file and follow the steps. It will take a few hours. If you are new to papercraft, I linked a tutorial below that should be helpful. Enjoy!

Step 1: Materials and Printing

  • A printer
  • A4 or A3 Paper (11 sheets)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Ruler (optional)

I used A4 paper sheets to make this deer head but you can use A3 paper.With A4 paper the deer head should be approximately 45 cm high .With A3 paper, it is approximately 65 cm high.

When printing on paper make sure you have fairly heavy paper. 180 g/m^2 is the minimum to make a 45cm high one. If to make 65cm' s one, try to get paper closer to 250 g/m^2 .

In the pdf file, the antlers parts is grouped on the last four pages , If you plan to use different colors.I also kept the base on a single page.

As for the glue I guess everyone has their own favourite. I prefer double-sided tape because It's cleaner (no spillage) and faster.

Of course you also need a pair of scissors and optionally a ruler for folding. I used a laser cutter to make parts , it really save times.

Step 2: Making the Deer Head

If you have never done any papercraft, have a look at a tutorial first. I am not going into the basics here. This tutorial by krummrey looks very nice.

First cut out all pieces along the black, solid lines. Then fold at the dotted lines. Placing a ruler on the line can help to get straighter folds faster.

Remember: the printed side (lines and numbers) should end up on the inside of the model, so you can't see anything on the deer head form outside. Therefore most folds in this model will be valley folds!

I advise you to start with the ears, then antlers , and then head. When you make head, start with the nose's parts.

For easy to put on the wall and to maintain shape, I recommend draw the base to a cardboard.

Step 3: Thanks

I hope you like my papercraft project. If you make it, I would be glad if you shared a picture in the comments. I would also love to see different colour combinations. If you find any bugs in the template please also let me know so I can fix them.

I would like to extend my most sincere thanks and apologies to DrDee17. His work Papercraft-Low-Poly-Bird is very impressive. I copied some text from his tutorial. Thanks for the excellent work of DrDee17.

And I need to thank krummrey for his great tutorial on making papercraft objects.

Also I want to thank Thingiverse user 'Jia-Ming Cheng' for his deer head model that I used in the process.

Hope you have fun making this.
