We always look for fun and easy ways to add a little DIY charm to our holiday crafts. Paper, for example, is a simple material with so many design opportunities, perfect for this festive crafting season. Previously, we’ve created these simple origami boxes for string lights and these star-shaped Christmas ornaments to great success. For this collection, we’re so excited to introduce our newest papercraft project, this adorable Cardstock Origami Elk Family.
Join us on Tuesday, December 5 at noon PT for our live workshop where we demonstrate how we make this elk family. Or watch the replay!

Our subject, the mighty elk, are such fascinating creatures. We have them here in Oregon, and it’s always fun to spot them out in the wild. Elk, with their majestic antlers, symbolize strength and family bonds. Of course, winter is all about creating warm memories, and what better way than crafting these super cute origami elks with your friends and loved ones? The magic of this project lies not only in the folds, but in the joy of crafting together.
Origami, the ancient art of paper folding, has a rich history that spans centuries. Traditionally associated with Japanese culture, it’s a craft that embodies simplicity and beauty. The stark silhouette of this little elk family is the perfect subject for such a delicate art. This project perfectly captures the essence of winter wildlife, making it a unique addition to your seasonal decor.
Once complete, we’d love to see your Cardstock Origami Elk Family come to life! We think these would look so cute perched on your mantle side table. However you choose to display them, don’t forget to share with is in our crafters’ community or on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.
