This my submission toThe Cool Mom Picks+Etsy Color-Your-Own Holiday Ornament Design Contest: The Arctic Trio! The collection consists of a penguin, a polar bear, and a reindeer decorated with snowflake motif. These paper creatures are easy to make, and can serve multiple functions as greeting cards, gift tags, ornaments, or palm size pets :) Have fun!
Step 1. Mise en place. Print the patterns on a letter size card stock.
請叫我亞洲的瑪莎史都華, 清廉版喔 :)
Step 2. Trim the square and fold in the center as precisely as possible.
Step 3. If you decide to fold the pattern in half first, then cut carefully following the silhouette - this method works for both the penguin and the polar bear as the designs are symmetrical. For the reindeer, please cut from the antler portion first following the silhouette and then fold along the spine after the entire silhouette is cut.
Step 4. Congrats! Now you have 3 animal shaped cards to write your greetings.
Step 5. Or continue with some embellishments with ribbons and tiny jingle bells.
**YEAH! My polar bear got selected to be one of the eight winning ornaments for Holiday 2010 by Cool Mom Picks. People can purchase the winning ornament collection PDFs for USD$3.00 at the Etsy shop - all proceeds going to Housing Works.**
ps. 此文的序語幽了無名氏先生ㄧ默, 因為實在忍受不了那個年代文藝青年澎湃的情感和虛無堆砌的形容辭, 到現在兩本書我都還沒讀過… 好像有些放肆.
