Creating the Mickey Mouse Reindeer
Since earlier this month I did a detailed tutorial on how to create a Mickey Mouse reindeer image in Design Space. Because of that, I am not going to go as in depth for the steps in this tutorial. Instead I am going to ask that you go to my Mickey Mouse Reindeer Gift Tag post if you need the step by step details. Just click HERE.
For the quick summary of how I did this in Design Space, I am going to first slice the antlers off of a reindeer image. (see the first image below) Once I have those antlers enlarged and rotated to fit on the Mickey Mouse image, I am going to Duplicate them. This creates a second copy, and I will Weld one set of antlers to the Mickey Mouse shape. (see second image below)
Again, if that was too quick for you please go over to read my full tutorial HERE. I just do not want to have to type out that whole tutorial twice. Now we are going to move on to the sizing. I found that making the width of the Mickey Mouse image 3.6 inches wide was a nice size.
Mickey Mouse Reindeer Video
If you would rather watch a video to see the process for creating a Mickey Mouse Reindeer come together, I put this together for you.
Slice a circle
Now we have to make the hole in the center of the Mickey Mouse reindeer for the candy to pop through. Insert a circle from the Shapes button and make that circle 1.125 inches wide. Place the circle over the Mickey Mouse icon, as shown in the image below. Select both the Mickey Mouse icon and the circle and then click the Slice button in the lower right corner, indicated with the blue arrow in the image below. This will cut a circle out of the center of the Mickey Mouse icon.
Assemble the Mickey Mouse Reindeer Candy Holder
Now that everything is cut it is time to put our Mickey Mouse reindeer candy holder together.
First let’s attach the antlers to the top of the Mickey Mouse head. The fine tip Zig glue pen works great for this since it allows you to place a thin line of glue to the back of the antlers.
Once you allow the glue to dry on the antlers, flip the whole thing over and place a red lollipop so that the top of it pops through the circle in the center. I used some clear tape across the back to hold everything in place.
From the front you have a red nosed Mickey Mouse reindeer! This would make a great little treat for the kids to bring to school, or to add to the top of any gift you give this holiday season.
