Torn Paper Santa Cards

Supplies:

  • Red paper
  • White watercolour paper (any white paper will do, but textured paper like watercolour paper looks great for the beard and hat)
  • Pink or flesh tone paper
  • A black marker pen
  • Make-up blush or a pink crayon
  • Glue

 

Directions:

  1. Cut a wide strip of pink paper and paste across the centre of your bag.  Trim at the sides to fit.
  2. Cut and glue a wide strip of red paper above, to the top of the bag (or card, or tag, or whatever).Step-2-956x1024
  3. Tear a thin strip of watercolour paper; do this roughly, don’t use a ruler, and don’t worry if it’s irregular.  Glue it over where the red and pink paper meet; this is the trim of Santa’s hat.  Now tear a wider piece of the white paper for the beard and moustache shape; aim for a shape which curves up in the middle like this:
  4. Now take your marker pens and dot two eyes and sketch a little smile (play around with expressions; each one can be different!).  Use a pink pen to ink in a nose.
  5. Finally, dip your finger in some blusher (or use a crayon if you’re a dude), and swirl on two rosy cheeks.  You could dab some on the tip of the nose too if you like; it gets cold out there on the sleigh.  Ta-da; you’re done!  Now just repeat  – or you can scan your work of art and print it out instead; the lazy crafter’s guide to mass-production at Christmas.
