Handmade Paper Santa Craft For Christmas
- 2 Colored Glazed Papers
Step 1: Take a Sheet Of Paper
Take a sheet of glazed paper and place it on the surface upside down and remember, it should look like a rhombus, not a square.
Step 2: Make a Fold At The Corner
Fold the rhombus from one corner to the other and press it down to make a mark. Open the fold after making the mark. Repeat the process with other corners. Now, the top corner of this rhombus up to the mid-section of the paper or the center point of the mark that you made earlier.
Step 3: Make Smaller Folds
Make a small fold at the corner of the already-made fold. Now, Make another fold to the fold you just made. Both folds should be small.
Step 4: Make a Big Fold At The Bottom Corner
Take the bottom corner of the sheet and make a big fold so that it fits under the fold you made earlier slightly. Now, take the excess sheet made by the big fold and fold it over again making the corner of this already folded side place a little above the bottom side of the fold.
Step 5: Turn The Sheet Around
This step involves turning the sheet in the opposite direction and making yet another small fold on the side resembling a slope.
Step 6: Complete Both Folds
The same process applies to the other slope as well.
Step 7: Folding To Make Perfect Slopes
On the same side make a bigger fold covering a little less than half the area of the top surface line of the sheet. The fold should still have the slope but this time it should be bigger in width.
Step 8: Repeat The Process On The Other Side
Do the same on the opposite side of the fold you just made. This shall make a pointed corner at the top of the two folded sides.
Step 9: Folding The Slopes Inwards
Carefully, fold this bigger slope, you made in the previous step, towards the sheet, not in the opposite direction. Do this on both slopes making the sheet straight on both sides.
Step 10: Adjusting The Excess Strip
Take the excess sheet made by the fold and fit it in the pocket created by the previous fold at the upper part of the sheet. Do this on both sides.
Step 11: Turning The Sheet Again
Turn the sheet around and you can already see a human shape with a cap on its head.
Step 12: Make a Happy Face On It
Take a light pencil and make a face on it. You can simply use signs like < >, which you know from mathematics, to make its eyes, add a red dot below them. Outline them with a sketch pen. You can also cut out a small circle from a plain sheet of paper and paste it at the top of the cap. Don’t forget to outline its beard.
