Mr. and Mrs. Santa - Made from Reader's Digest Magazines

Does anyone have the pattern for Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus made from old Readers Digest books? My great aunt made them years ago, and I'd like to make some now. I'm sorry, but I don't have a picture to post. I know you folded the pages somehow, then painted them, added red felt, a black belt (felt I think), belt buckle, cotton for the beard and hair. Any help is appreciated.

I found these directions, with no picture, on the Santa Claus Museum site: santamuseum.org. Perhaps you can take a picture and post it when you've made one. It would seem that photos of this project are scarce. Since you remember your aunt's Santas, you can probably figure out the directions easily. I look forward to seeing the finished Santa.

I received these as a gift from my mother back in the 70s. It's nice that the pattern is available online. Mine were stored for a few years and had some damage to the bunting which I removed and will replace. It was nice having them as my centerpiece again. (01/04/2009)
