Trace and cut out pieces from cardstock according to the patterns. Be sure to place mitten and boot patterns along the fold as indicated. Use the stylus to score along the dotted lines of the Santa. Fold along the scored lines with the middle crease in a peak to form the bottom gusset. You should have a triangular piece when folded.
Working with one triangle as the front, place the black 3/8” strip across the body about 1/2” from the bottom for the belt. Glue in place and trim off excess.
Center and place top straight edge of the face about 1- 1/4” below the top tip of the triangle. Glue in place. Place the beard piece around the face and glue in place. Place the hat trim along the top of the face and overlapping the edges of the beard. Glue in place. Place the two eyes below the trim and glue in place. Use the 1/4” hole punch and punch 2 pink circles and one red circle. Place a pink circle on either side of the face below the eyes for the cheeks and glue in place. Next, place the mustache across the face, overlapping the beard and a little of the cheeks. Glue in place. Lastly, glue the red circle on the middle of the mustache for a nose.
Glue the side tabs together, back to front. Place a boot over each bottom tab, as pictured in the sample. Glue boots to the tabs. Place a mitten over each upper tab and glue to the tab.
Glue the pom pom to the tip of the triangle. Fill your Santa Sack with a treat and set on your table.
