DIY Christmas Cards

Updated: 3 days ago


With Christmas right around the corner, we want to share some of our favorite DIY Christmas Cards. A fun and easy activity to work on with family and friends of all ages!


See Santa Fly! Christmas Card


Look! Santa just flew over our roof!


This interactive card is a joy to create, and a fun gift to spread holiday cheer. With a rotation element, this card allows you to watch Santa and his reindeer fly over a beautiful holiday home.


What you will need:
  • Craft/mixed media paper

  • Scissors

  • Hot glue or craft glue

  • Coloring supplies of choice; Posca pens, colored pencils, markers, etc.

  • Paper fastener

Instructions:



  1. Prepare your paper components by folding and cutting your card piece. Use the card as a reference to create a rectangle piece that covers roughly ¾ of the front of your card. Create a third piece by tracing a circle that can fit between your card and the rectangle piece.

  2. Decorate your circle piece by drawing Santa and his reindeer! Draw this on one half of your circle, and allow your drawing to curve with the circular shape.

  3. Next, decorate your card piece by adding the color of a night sky.

  4. And now, decorate your rectangle piece to be a stunning holiday home. Don’t forget to add snow, a wreath, and some Christmas lights!

  5. Assemble! Take your circle piece and place it near the top center of your card piece. Attach this on by using a paper fastener in the center of your circle piece. Your circle should now be able to spin on your card!

  6. Finally, you will glue your house to the bottom front of your card. It is important not to glue any of the circle piece – as this needs to be free to rotate. You're all done with your beautiful Christmas card creation!


Cozy Fireplace Christmas Card


Nothing is better than waking up Christmas morning to a warm fire and stockings full of holiday treats!

With this DIY holiday card, we bring the coziness with a fun 3D felt element!


What you will need:
  • Craft/mixed media paper

  • Scissors

  • Hot glue

  • Coloring supplies of choice; Posca pens, colored pencils, markers, etc.

  • Assortment of felt (great way to use up old scraps!)

Instructions:



  1. Prepare your paper by folding and cutting your card piece.

  2. Decorate your card by drawing and coloring a fireplace on the front of your card. Above the fireplace, draw a curved line where your felt stockings will hang!

  3. Using another piece of paper, sketch out the shapes of your stockings and fire. Cut these shapes out, as we will be using them to trace on your felt pieces!

  4. Lay our papercut stocking shape and fire shape on the felt pieces of your choice, and outline the felt with marker.

  5. Following the marker outlines you made, cut out your felt shapes. It is fun to layer felt with smaller detailed shapes such as the center of your fire, or the top of your stockings!

  6. Glue together your felt pieces, and attach them onto your card! Wow, I can practically hear the fire crackling – your card is all done!


Pom Pom Twinkle Lights Christmas Card

What you will need:

  • Craft/mixed media paper

  • Coloring supplies of choice; posca pens, colored pencils, markers, etc.

  • Assortment of small pom poms!

Instructions:



  1. Prepare your paper by folding and cutting your card piece.

  2. Decorate your card by coloring a backdrop for your Christmas lights! A brick wall, a Christmas tree, or whatever your imagination creates!

  3. Next, using a black marker or pen, create a curving line that will be the string for your Christmas lights.

  4. Color on dots where you would like your Christmas lights to be, and then glue your pom poms into place! Have fun and get creative, your card is complete!
