Santa Claus is a legendary, iconic figure, and a cherished origami subject. I’m happy to share this new origami Santa Claus as part of the many possible ways Santa can be presented.

This Santa can be used flat on a greeting card or mailer, or folded 3D as a free-standing figure.

In this tutorial, I will show how to make two different versions:

  • One, a simple Santa
  • And the second Santa with a wide beard
