Origami Santa and his Rainbow Reindeer

One uncut sheet of paper each.  The reindeer is folded from a design by Peter Engel, and the Santa is designed by Steven Casey.   I folded them to be among the items raffled and sold at the Holy Family Parish Christmas Fair, to be held this Saturday, Nov. 17, 9am-2pm.


Here’s a closeup of some of the reindeer:

They took me about an hour each to fold.
