Title: December, Model of the Month (Father Christmas)
Post by: Graham Lee on December 03, 2008, 10:07:02 PM
I was speaking with Thelma today & saying I wasn't sure what to post as the model of the month & she straight away said why dont you put on one of my models. Not only that but this is one that will be out on her new festive CD in the new year, so Thelma a big thanks & hug from me. It's greatly appreciated, hoping to see lots of members having a go at this :lol:
And dont forget that when Thelma puts out the CD please buy it  :D

Thanks Graham and Thelma.
I've been trying to come up with a quick and easy Santa.

Here's my first effort.

I'm afraid this one has me beat! I've gone through sooooo many balloons just trying to perfect the head and then just when I thought I had it I realised I had nothing to attach the body too... I think i'll wait for the instructions for this one....  Still you've got yourself a sale Thelma - let me know when I can buy one.

Well done everyone who tried it.  Here I have used it amongst some decorations I did at the golf club.  They let me do anything I like there as long as its nice or fun.

Thelma, what a great Santa!
It has so many possibilities, you can make him basic like yours, but then you ca ad so much ideas of your own.
So I tried to make yours,...that is the idea of this topic,......but then I made 3 different ones!
I'll post the one that's the most like yours here:

This is as far as I got - the head! But then I got very confused!

Then just do a triangle with the next balloon & body/legs with another red balloon.
Good luck, we all know you can do it. :)  ;)

I see maybe I was making it far more complicated than I thought! I've come up with something slightly similar although if you looked at it closely it wouldn't bear scrutiny! Here is the pic anyhow.... It looks nothing like yours at the back though!

Hi All!

This is a santa that I do for displays and special orders. He's made mostly out of 360's and he stands about 2 feet and 6 inches (75 centimeters) tall.  He is not as fat as I would like so it needs work.
Thanks,
-David

AMENDMENT!!!!!!  The reference to bubble "2" is wrong.  It should say "Twist the small bubble into the base of bubble "1" nor 2.  Sorry if this has confused anyone.

I did not originally make this model with the base which is why the base is not on the instructions above.  I just did that on a whim when I was jamming with Graham and we thought it looked good because it make the model stand independently.  I may put some more photos on with the Santa on different bases if I get time over the next few days.  Bit late though but you have next year to think about!!!!

So Thelma, is this still on the horizon? I was at the Northampton Care and Share where we played with a number of these designs and the halloween ones - forgotton how to do most of them unfortunately, so hoping for a refresher.

Hi Thelma,

Great santa design!!

Just made it today. took about 10 min. How long did this take you to make? when you figured out the design of course!

You see iam trying to create a design for line work where I only have 3-5min spaces! But I want the design to look good!
