I am oddly drawn to the deer head! It doesn't go with my style at all but I love it!

Those medallions are so cool. Maybe in miniature size they would make nice gift tag type of decorations.

Amy said...

That deer head is AWESOME. Thanks for the link!

A paper covered deer head! Sigh. I love the internet.

Katie said...

Thanks for the links! I'm going to try to make a jackalope bust based off of the deer head for my husband's office...he once truly thought they were real. He actually argued with me that it was a mythical creature...lol. Now its an inside joke :).

What good ideas! The paper deer head is such a great alternative to real heads on walls. They're pretty creepy when I think of them.

Tracey said...

Have to check them all out- the winter is getting mighty long here! I need a couple of new projects.

Love the deer head. I saw a cardboard one on Rock Paper Scissors but could not justify shelling out the money. This is a nice option. I will make it to hang in my teenage son's room and see how long it will take for him to notice.

Thanks for sharing these! I've made a few sets of tile coasters with maps, but haven't tried paper napkins - I guess that will be next!

The moose head...that SO looks like a wife winning an argument with her husband.

Thank YOU for the link to the deer head! I spotted something so similar to this in a fantastic shop called Paper Sky in San Luis Obispo, CA, last weekend on a trip but couldn't bring myself to shell out the $50. I've already printed out the parts, now to find time to make this dear deer. THANKS!
