Instructions to Make Your Own Three Dimensional Santa Claus Card
Fold the A4 sheet of cardboard into two. This will give you an A5 size card that will make the main body of your Santa.
Cut a strip of red felt roughly one and a half inch wide and long enough to cover the bottom of the folded cardboard. Hot glue the red felt strip onto the bottom of the cardboard cover.
Cut a strip of black crafting felt roughly one inch wide. Glue this black strip onto the red Santa “body” leaving a stretch of red felt exposed on both sides. This black strip gives us the belt of Santa Claus.
To finish of Santa’s clothing, cut a small yellow rectangular for the belt buckle. This should be as long as the black belt. Then cut a small rectangular hole in the middle of the yellow felt and then glue the buckle of the belt in the middle of the black belt.
Hot glue a pair of googly eyes in the middle of the cardboard just on the extreme top of Santa’s clothing. This should be placed approximately on the upper third of the card.
For Santa’s nose, cut a small piece or red felt and glue it below the eyes.
Roll the cotton wool into balls and attach cotton balls all over Santa’s face to create his beard.
Create a pair of glasses from the copper wire using the rounded long nose pliers. Cut the excess wire and then hot glue the glasses just in front of Santa’s eyes. Make sure to place it in a forward leaning position towards Santa’s nose.
Cut a Santa hat from the red crafting felt and then glue it on the topmost part of Santa’s face. Be sure to leave a small space in between the face and the cap as this will leave space for his hair.
Add cotton balls on the space between the cap and the face to create his hair and to complete the picture hot glue a cotton ball on the tip of Santa’s hat.
