A Christmas card that send a big hug to the receiver :)
This is fairly simple and it looks way cuter then it's hard to make, win win.
So hope it will be useful for you as well :-)
Step 1: Tools and Supplies
* Red paper A5
* Pink paper for cheeks (3*6 cm is enough)
* A sheet of white paper A4
*Black paper for eyes (2*4 cm is enough)
*White paint for the shine in the eyes.
Step 2: Fold and Cut the Base
I measured the red A5 and marked it in 4 parts, the outer forth quarters was then folded against the middle.
I then folded it in the other length in half. This is best seen in the pictures.
I then started cutting it as an envelop, wanted to make it look like a pair of arms and a santas cap, and still being able to hide the entire santa when it was closed.
Step 3: Cut the Pieces
I started by folding the red A5 paper as an envelop, as you could see in the previous step.
Then I used that as a guide when cutting the rest of the santa, because then I could see how wide the beard had to be and the face a.s.o.
Step 4: Cheeks, Beard and Hat
Yes, this step is just to look at the pictures, to see where I put the different parts.
Step 5: Eyes and Gloves
I made fairly large eyes, always makes stuff cuter : )
I had a hobby paint in white that I dripped on the black eyes, to make it look like it glows.
As the last step I added the gloves, and it's important to try that it is still possible to close, and if possible, that you can only see one glove when closed.
