This craft was inspired by a reindeer Christmas decoration which I've always loved. I combined it with sheet music and a stamp to make a simple Christmas card.

Materials
Square blank greeting card
Reindeer template (if you don't have one like mine, then you can print one off a free site, or simply draw your own template on card).
Sheet music
Pencil
Craft knife
Red pen
Glue
Christmas greeting stamp
Black ink pad

Method
Draw round the reindeer template on the sheet music.

Cut out the reindeer carefully with a craft knife. Then repeat and cut out a second reindeer.

Stick the reindeer onto the card. It looks better if they are facing in opposite directions as it makes a symmetrical-looking card.

I coloured in the reindeer's nose before I stuck it down, but that made the glue smudge it slightly. It would be better to colour in the nose with red pen last once you have done everything else.



Merry Christmas stamp


Pick a suitable stamp for the top-centre of the card. If you don't have a stamp, you could neatly write a Christmas message.

Add any other embellishments you like. You could make the reindeer's red nose glittery. Or, like me, you could add a sticker - I couldn't resist one that read 'reindeer post'.
