This time, Santa came accompanied by the Elves that make the toys in his workshop.
These models are easy to fold, look nice from every side, and can stand up easily. Here are a few things that you can do with them:
- Glue a piece of ribbon on the top, and decorate your Christmas tree.
- Create a really fun and low budget Christmas gift: A Christmas Tic-Tac-Toe. Just fold three of each, and place them over a colorful origami board game made of business card cubes.
Santa and Elf models are my design. Each model is folded from two squares of paper of the same size. Both models share the same base, a "combined preliminary base", only the folds that define the facial features are different. Here are the video instructions:
You can use different sizes and different types of paper to fold the models. The Santas and Elves in the pictures and in the video were folded with squares ranging from 4 ½" (113 mm) up to 12" (300 mm). I folded some of them using regular origami paper, and some with scrapbook paper.
I folded the Santas and Elves for the tic-tac-toc using 4 ½" (113 mm) squares so that their base fits neatly within the faces of the board. The business card cubes instructions can be found here.
I hope you enjoy the models.
