Santa Card

Card making Christmas cards Christmas crafts How to Papercraft Papercrafter Techniques Card Making Projects

Corinne Bradd has recreated the classic Santa down a chimney with a contemporary cartoon-like twist. It’s really simple to make – don’t overcomplicate things trying to find the exact materials we’ve used, because you can use patterned paper and straws from your stash.

PaperCrafter Templates,
Tape, foil,
Drinking straws, spotty red

1 Take a 7.5cm x 9.5cm rectangle of patterned paper. Cut a 4.5cm x 6.5cm aperture from the centre. Mount onto 7cm x 9cm of navy paper with 3D foam pads, then edge the aperture with foil tape.

2 Cover a 10.5cm x 15cm blank with spotted paper. Trim a strip of red paper and glue to the top to create a mantelpiece. Cut the sides of a 2cm x 8.5cm rectangle diagonally to make a hearth and edge with tape. Add a sentiment to the top.

3 Cut two 4cm lengths from drinking straws. Use our templates to make Santa’s boots and jumper from coloured paper and trim with tape. Glue the straws to the centre of the fireplace, fix the boots to the bottom and the tunic to the top, then tuck it under the aperture.
