Handmade Christmas Card: 6 Craft Ideas!

Christmas craft ideas once again!! Holiday cards are an integral part of Christmas. It feels so special to receive a handmade card, made with effort, time and creativity. Its a gift in itself, its exclusive and anyone would appreciate and be flattered to have received such a unique card.

Making Christmas cards might sound like a lot of work but it can be very simple and stylish and be made with little supplies and time. The ideas I have have some step by step tutorial for some fun pop-up cards and lovely illustrations for cards in 3D :-D

3D Card- Christmas Baubles on a string!!

Simple and stylish! Great for all ages, Cut 3 circles (for each bauble) with pinking shears and fold in half. Glue the half circles as shown. Right half of 1st, spine of 2nd, and left half of 3rd. That is it!! Use colorful paper or embellishments to jazz it up further!!

Pop-Up Card - Christmas Present!

Step by step tutorial for Christmas present Pop up card. It would be so cute to insert a Gift card between the two layers! You could modify the same to make a 3-tiered Birthday cake too, stick some candles for a perfect Birthday Card! :-)

Cut the solid lines, fold along the dotted lines.

Fold the card cut-outs horizontally, away from you.

Pinch the cut-outs vertically towards you carefully.

Once it pops out just right, decorate with embellishments!

Dimensional Card - Star topped Christmas Tree

This is yet another unique card. I love the Pine cone shape and the classic Christmas tree cut-out. Trace half of a Christmas tree like shown and use X-acto knife. Fold it over for the dimensional effect. A craft idea for those with steady hands maybe, beginners can try making simpler round Christmas ornaments.

Finger Painting Card - Cute Reindeer Family!

This is such an adorable Christmas card. Perfect craft idea for family! Thumb prints of every member of the family decorated as reindeer. I would love to make some of these myself. Great for preschoolers too!
