9. Fold point down on an angle to the left so that it sits just above the folded white strip.
Your Santa’s head is now done and you can draw a face or beard on it.

4. Fold out top corner from 2/3 on the way down the center.
(You can fold the paper in half down the center to get an idea of when you fold out from)

5. Fold out other side. (Try to get as even as possible, but it does not matter if you are slightly off)

6. Crease 1/3 of the way down across the center.

7. Fold the top down along this crease to finish the body.

Finally put your head on top of the body and you have your cute little

I will be doing a how to for my ribbons also at the request of Meredith.

Hope your all getting into the Christmas Spirit! 🙂
