Reindeer Face Christmas Table Tent Cards
Hosting a holiday bash? Be the hostess with the mostest with these adorable papercraft Christmas table tent cards. The addition of the Mirri Lava Holographic paper for the noses makes such a fun touch.
I'm providing basic instructions for creating this project in Cricut Design Space, but if you do not have a Cricut, you can certainly hand cut these basic shapes.
- American Crafts Cardstock in Lagoon, Caramel, and Coffee
- Mirri Matte Lava Holographic Cardstock in Red
- Mirri Sparkle Glitter Paper in Silver
- Double-Sided Foam Square Adhesive
- Bearly Arts Precision Craft Glue
- Optional: Printer
- Cricut Cutting Machine + Cricut Design Space + Cricut Scoring Pen
- Cricut Design Space Files: Rectangle, Rounded Rectangle (Cricut Image# M40EF9), Reindeer Face (choose any)
Start off by sizing your rectangular base. American Crafts Smooth cardstock in Lagoon was used for the base to go with the winter wonderland vibes. For reference, I used a rectangle sized 5.67 in x 5.64 in. I placed a scoring line right in the center, sized the exact same length as the width (5.67 in). On the right-hand side of the Design Space software, select both the base and the scored line, and attach them together. This will ensure your machine scores your base before cutting, making the folding process much simpler.
Next, size the rounded rectangle (Cricut Image# M40EF9). For reference, I used 4.92 in x 2.46 in. Choose your font and type in the wording of your choice. Flatten the font with the rounded rectangle in the software so that it is now a print and cut image. If you don’t have a printer, or Cricut, you can skip this step and handwrite on your white rounded rectangle, or you can even cut out lettering. To save time, I opted to go with the print and cut route.
Next, offset the image in the software so that you can add a slightly larger decorative sparkly shadow behind your rounded rectangle in Silver Mirri Sparkle cardstock.
Next, add your cute little reindeer face. The one I selected I purchased on Etsy. This cute little face can be substituted for any other reindeer face, or other cute little character. For reference, I sized mine at 2.34 in x 2.84 in. American Crafts Smooth cardstock in Coffee was right shade for the reindeer antlers and Caramel was used for the reindeer face. Mirri Matte Lava Holographic cardstock in red added that extra special touch for the reindeer’s nose.
Once all pieces have been cut, it’s time to get to the fun stuff – assembling! If you would like to be able to reuse these food tent cards, using double-sided foam adhesive will be your best friend. You'll be able to disassemble the reindeer face and the text and change out the wording. I used Bearly Arts glue to assemble the reindeer face and double-sided foam adhesive for everything else.
Easy peasy! Now you have adorable food tent cards which can be reused later or can even use this same technique to make place cards for people at your holiday tables!
