It is so cute.
Ok ok. I searched high and low for reflective gold cardstock. After weeks of looking I was able to find packs at Michaels that had some gold sheets in them- 5 or so in a variety pack. I asked multiple employees if there were any packs that were ONLY gold paper, but they just shrugged. Some day I’ll find it, but until then I’m making do with what I have.
I envisioned this for Christmas décor, but since it’s not overly Christmas (though you could make it so), I made it early and it will be pulling double-duty through Thanksgiving.
The pictures don’t do it justice, guys. And you can of course make it with whatever colors you like. Make some flags with circles instead of the deer and print a message on them (happy holidays? be thankful? whatever!) to make it your own, using the deer as end pieces.
I’ve been asked a few times how to create the paper medallions, so I found a crafty tutorial for anyone who isn’t versed with them. The cut file contains the necessary cuts to cut them, just drag them into the cut area and load your paper of choice, but if you need to know how to put them together check out Craft Thyme’s post on How to Make Paper Medallions or Rosettes.
A side note: Happy Birthday, Aleckz! : )
