Christmas Craft: Making Pop-Up Christmas Cards

Posted Dec 23 2008 3:17pm

Today the kids made pop-up Christmas cards for their aunts. Just for the aunts and none for the uncles as somehow ladies seem to appreciate these things more than the men.

We made two types of cards. The first is a pop-up origami tree card. The second is a pop-up cut-out Christmas tree card.

If you are interested, here are the step-by step instructions on how to make the pop-up origami Christmas tree card.

And here is a step-by-step instruction on how to make the cut-out or pop up Christmas tree card using the Robert Sabuda Method. By the way, I found many other interesting and simple pop-ups to try with the kids on RobertSabuda.com You should check it out too.

For both types of cards, I helped the kids to make the frames and the pop-ups, the cutting and the glueing (because Christmas is almost here so we need speed. lol) and then got them to decorate it in any way they wish. I gave them stickers, glitter pens, color pens etc to use for decorations.

The girl drew presents under the tree, stars, candy canes, snowflakes. The boys decorated his with stars and sesame street stickers, drew in cars (his favourite), and various shapes, hearts, diamonds, etc. We're not quite done yet but I couldn't wait to post up the pictures. :P



MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM OUR LITTLE FAMILY TO YOURS!
