Make a tiny origami Santa


I made wee origami Santas. Each guy is folded from two 1 1/2" squares of red paper. Have the kids tuck one inside your Christmas cards or stick them onto gift tags. Make them green and they could be elves.

Learn how to make these easy origami Santas right here at HoikuAkira. The instructions are in Japanese, but I just followed the photos. Google translate didn't add much value; the pictures were enough to get the job done.

I'm glad you didn't say that it looks like Santa got run over by his reindeer. That may have sparked some crazy commenting. ;)

Super duper cute! I bet Miss C would like Santa IN her stocking! ;)

Yeah, please don't mention anything about Santa looking smooshed! Ha!

These are so cute - and so quick and easy! I already made 5 cards and 2 garlands with these santas, and my friends and family adore them!
Thanks for the inspiration, and happy holidays!

FYI: Origami square paper is 15cm (6 inches) on a side.

Merry Christmas! David
