Instructions - Origami Santa Claus

You need Santa Claus for an Origami:

  • a two-colored sheet of origami paper
  • bonefolder
  • markers

Tip: You can buy a wooden or plastic folder in any well-crafted craft shop for a few euros. The purchase is worthwhile especially if you have fallen in love with origami - with a folder the folds are particularly accurate.

Step 1: Place the sheet of origami paper on the patterned or colored side up. Then fold a diagonal line and the two centerlines. The three folds are opened again and again.

Step 2: Apply the paper to the back. It must be so in front of you that the diagonal folding runs from top left to bottom right.

Step 3: Now fold the bottom edge up towards the centerline. Open this fold again. Then fold the right edge towards the vertical center fold.

Step 4: Afterwards, turn the paper over on the back side - place it in front of you so that the just-folded cut points point towards you.

Step 5: Fold the tip down to the midpoint. The fold is opened again.

Step 6: Then fold the same tip again, but this time only until the fold from the previous step. Open the fold again.

Step 7: Repeat step 6, but leave the fold at.

Step 8: Then hammer the tip in half once. Thereafter, the resulting strip is beaten a second time.

Step 9: Turn the paper back onto the back and fold the paper together as shown in the pictures.

Step 10: Turn the paper 180 °. The lower tip is then folded completely up.

Step 11: In zig-zag, fold the top down three times.

12th step: Afterwards, the origami Santa Claus is turned back. Fold the left and right points towards the middle. It creates another square.

Step 13: The side corners are now folded inwards again. Fold the complete layers over. This will be a bit more difficult as the paper has already been folded several times.

Step 14: Then fold in the lower tip a little bit upwards.

15th step. Apply the origami Santa Claus and miss him with felt-tip pens eyes, nose, mouth and buttons! Done is the homemade Origami Santa!

The Santa Claus made of paper can now be used in many different ways - whether as Christmas tree decorations, gifts for the gifts or the Advent wreath.
