Sam & Cece’s Holiday Funland – Day 16 – Origami Santa Claus

Here are some little Origami Santa Clausi of my own design. Some of them have crossed the line into kirigami perhaps, since little snips or tears give a more whiskery look. (They also break Origami rules by being a big mess on the reverse side.)

Below is one made from a rectangle to give a bigger beard.

  1. I just had to comment that my class tried to make a version of this Santa last year around Christmas. IT WAS SO HARD! I believe there is no good way to make the back of this look good. But they had fun trying, because he is so cute.

  2. Kirigami gets such a bad rap. I say “hiss boo” to purism. Upside down they could be duck-billed platypuses.

  3. I think you and Cece are the REAL mayors of Funland!!!!

  4. Those are cute. I love the top picture, which reminds me of an M.C. Escher tesselation.
