Easy Origami Santa Step 1: Start with a 6 inch x 6 inch (15cm x 15cm) square origami paper color side down.




Easy Origami Santa Step 2: Make a fold as shown by dotted line below. To help you out, I measured the fold I made.

The crease should be at about 1.75cm or 3/4 inch from the bottom left edge, and about 5.5cm or 2 1/8 inch from the top right edge.



This fold #1.





Easy Origami Santa Step 3: Make a mountain fold as indicated in the picture below. As you fold the paper under, the edges along the left side should line up. This is fold #2.





Easy Origami Santa Step 4: Rotate your paper 90 degrees counter clockwise. Do you see santa?!
