A Gift from Ruben

Holiday decorating is in full swing at our house.  We will get our tree tomorrow, but the halls around here are already decked with many quirky decorations.  Last week, Ruben made this posable paper Santa toy for our front door, and today he asked me to share it with you.  If you want to make your own, you can print this on heavy paper, punch holes in the arms, legs and body, and use wire brads to put it all together.

Ruben's fondness for Santa runs deep.  He pulled out his old hat and pipe cleaner beard again, and I can easily imagine him dressing up like Santa every year from now until his real beard is long and white.


  1. Ruben, thank you! This is pretty cool, and it's so nice of you to share your pattern and art!

  2. I've just read through so many of your posts. You are amazing, and incredibly creative. I would have loved to be your child!


  3. That is just super adorable. By the way, I've been meaning to congratulate you on the Cup of Jo link. That is fantastic!


Thanks for leaving a comment!
