Cardboard Deer Head

I've always found animal head mounts interesting, and I wanted to have one in my future farmhouse. On Christmas break 2009, I was walking around in down town San Francisco. I found an amazing cardboard deer head hung on a wall in a jeans store. I kept looking at it for almost 10 minutes. Well... I memorized the number of all parts, sizes and shapes. I wanted to do one myself so bad! So that night, I got some reference images and drew all the shapes on a digital software and printed them out. The next day I bought a huge cardboard and started working. I had to finish it in 2 nights, because I was leaving to Florida after, and I wanted to take it as a present for my sister there. And this is how it came out... Pretty accurate :p

Looks FAB!

There is also a free pattern that's available as well. See here for anyone that wants it: I want to make it soonish, but my hand cramps way too easily, so who knows? Either way, hope you share your template too!
