Origami Santa Claus boot
This is that very stocking that is usually hung on the fireplace so that Santa Claus can put a gift in it. A wonderful holiday tradition!
This origami is much smaller than the actual size of Christmas stockings, so the gift probably won’t fit in there. However, it can be a great addition to gift wrapping or even a Christmas tree decoration.
To make it, you will need one-sided red origami paper measuring 15×20 cm. If you wish, you can take a larger or smaller sheet of paper, but you must maintain the proportions of 3:4. Please note that this origami is quite complex, so children may need the help of adults.
It is important to carefully crease all the folds. This will help you at the final stage of making origami.
Now, fold the lower right corner to the left edge, but crease the fold only where indicated by the dotted line.
Similarly, fold the lower left corner to the right edge, creasing the fold only at the indicated interval.
Turn the paper white side up, fold the bottom edge inward along the dotted line, and then unfold.
Fold the sides back. Next, you proceed to the most difficult part, so it is better to use video instructions.
Focusing on the V-shaped bend in the center, fold the paper so that it forms two volumetric parts in the shape of the letter “L”.
Fold the right side of the inner layer inward, focusing on the folds. You should get a miniature cone. If you have any problems, refer to the instructions in the video.
If you reached the end of the instructions and everything worked out for you, then you can rightfully consider yourself a confident origami master!
