As you can see from the image, we’ve added some snow prints to our blue backdrop.

To create these prints, we simply placed a pen lid into white acrylic paint and printed in a random formation across the card. A similar effect can be achieved with bubble wrap and fingertips!

Step 7: Take the large oval and create a small fold at both ends, adding some glue along the fold.

Step 8: Position the oval in a horizontal position and gently bend the paper by pulling in the two folds to create an arch. Once your Arty Crafty Kids are happy with its position, stick the folds down to the paper.

Step 10: The Accordion Folds! 

Using scissors or a paper cutter, cut out four even strips of yellow paper – ideally, the strips will be fairly wide and for length, I would recommend cutting the paper from the shortest side of an A4 piece of paper.

Take two strips and position them in a 90° angle as shown above. Glue the connecting papers together.

Step 11: Simply fold the bottom strip over the top and crease the fold along the edge. This will make the accordion fold tight!

Step 12: Keep alternating the strip folds until you run out of paper and seal the ends with glue.

Take another two strips of paper and repeat the process to create a second paper accordion.

Step 13: Glue the bottoms of both accordion folds to the top of the reindeer’s head and attach the handprints to the top of each.
