3d Christmas Tree Card – Step by Step Photo Instructions

Begin by making your paper fan for your Christmas Tree

  1. We used an A5 sheet of green paper – which is approximately 10cm x 15cm. I am aware that US “standard sizes are a bit different… it doesn’t have to be exact! Just adjust the sizes in the next step.
  2. Fold your paper along the 15cm edge as neatly and evenly into a paper fan as possible. You should be left with a concertina paper strip 15cm long. We made 0.5mm wide accordion folds.
  1. Cut this paper strip into 5cm, 4cm, 3cm, 2cm and 1cm (A5 is actually JUST a little smaller than 15cm, so just adjust each section by a couple of mm and you are fine!). As mentioned.. it isn’t exact. Just make sure you get 5 pieces that get smaller each time.

Prepare and stick your Paper Tree stem to your pop up card

  1. Take your brown piece of paper. You will need approximately 3cm x 3cm.
  2. Fold it in half.
  3. Then fold the edges in by 0.5mm. So you should have folds: 0.5mm, 1cm, 1cm, 0.5mm
  4. Glue the 0.5mm strips onto the card. You now have a “Pop up” steam.

Glueing in your Paper Fan Chrismas Tree.

  1. Take your longest strip and glue just above the tree trunk on the LEFT side of the card.
  2. Repeat this step and layer the remaining 4 strips evenly – leaving a little space for a star.
  3. Once all are glued in place. Carefully add glue to the “upward facing” surface of your strip. This can be a bit fiddly.. as the concertinas like to bounce around a bit.
  4. Hold in black. Flap over the right side of the card and secure to the the green strips.
  5. When you open the card up, you should have your paper fan Christmas Tree pop up

Finally, decorating and adding details to your 3d Christmas Card DIY

  1. Now have fun – add a Christmas star.. snowflakes, night sky stars, a Christmas present, a snowman… anything you wish!! Enjoy.

What do you write in a Christmas Card?

now my kids are older and they have started making their own Christmas Cards for Family and Friends, they often ask me, What do you write in a Christmas card ? Or What do you say on the second of a Christmas poster ?
My answer is – it actually depends ! If it is a very dear friend or close family extremity, you may want to wish to take a short clock and write a little about how your years been – include any references to when you stopping point saw this person, vitamin a well as a generic seasonal greet .
If it is one of “ many cards ” you are writing and sending, you may want to keep it a little short. Afterall, the recipient role will appreciate that you handmade the calling card in the first place. Visit Prima for some great ideas !
