Oh “Deer” — Christmas Is Here With These Reindeer Scrapbook Projects

We all know Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen (and don’t forget Rudolph!), but which reindeer do you like best? Can’t decide? Why not create some reindeer scrapbook borders and a DIY reindeer card while you mull it over?

To create these projects you’ll need:

Joy Border

Step 1: Using the 12-inch Trimmer with the Deckle Blade, cut a 12″ x 3-1/4″ strip of evergreen patterned paper for the base. With the Straight Blade, cut a 12″ x 2-3/4″ strip of Santa hat patterned paper and adhere on top of the base.

Step 2: Cut an 11-3/4″ x 2-1/8″ strip of wood grain patterned paper. Cut an 11-1/2″ x 1-7/8″ strip of music note patterned paper and adhere on top of wood grain strip. Adhere at an angle to the base as shown.

Step 3: Punch one sleigh and seven reindeer from Black Cardstock. Adhere to the border.

Step 4: Add stickers, popping the holly up with Foam Squares.

Here Comes Santa Claus Border

Step 1: Using the 12-inch Trimmer with the Scallop Blade, cut a 12″ x 3-3/8″ strip of medium green patterned paper for the base. With the Straight Blade, trim out the village scene from designer paper. Adhere to the base, 1/8″ from the top. Cut a 12″ x 1/4″ strip of candy stripe patterned paper and a 12″ x 1/2″ strip of wood grain patterned paper. Add both to the border as shown.

Step 2: Punch a sleigh from Scarlet and Crimson Cardstock. Layer and adhere to the border. Punch three reindeer from Rich Brown Cardstock and adhere to the border.

Step 3: Add stickers with Foam Squares.

Merry Christmas Card

Step 1: Create the card base. Cut an 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of White Cardstock. Using the 12-inch Trimmer with the Scoring Blade, score along the long edge at 4-1/4″ and fold in half.

Step 2: Cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of plaid patterned paper. Notch the corners with the 2-Way Corner Rounder. Cut a 4-1/2″ x 2″ piece of dark green patterned paper. Adhere to the plaid piece at an angle. Apply a 4-1/2″ section of ribbons sticker to the bottom of the piece. Trim the edges. Adhere to the card.

Step 3: Adhere the moon embellishment. Punch a sleigh with Black Cardstock (Optional: Adhere a little piece of Scarlet Cardstock behind the black sleigh as shown). Punch a reindeer with Black Cardstock and adhere to the border.

Step 4: Add stickers and gems as desired.
