Step-by-step instructions to make a handprint Christmas tree card for kids
Fold the thin green cardstock in half and draw a ‘V shape with no corner’, starting from the folded side. Cut out the folded v shape. We got the structure of the tree. We will be sticking handprints on one side of it and writing the Christmas message inside it.
Stick a brown cardstock behind this V shaped tree.
Place this tree structure on a red cardstock with the trunk at the back. Do not stick it on the card yet. Get a small strip of green cardstock and apply glue on it. Now, stick it on the top flap of the tree and stick both its ends to the cardstock.
Once the glue dries, pull the trunk of the tree downwards. The brown cardstock which is the trunk is the pull-tab of our card. The lower flap of the tree should move freely up and down. If you see it gets stuck, slightly trim the sides and make sure it can move freely under the green cardstock strip.
Now, the fun part begins! Let your kid trace several handprints on a green paper and cut them out. Stick them one by one on the top flap covering the green cardstock strip. Make sure the handprints do not stick to the red cardstock.
The pull-tab handprint Christmas tree card is ready. Time to decorate it. Draw some Christmas tree light strings with a black marker and decorate the card with stars, glitter paper, etc. You can also add some Christmas lights with fingerprints. Don’t forget to pull the tab down and write your special Christmas message inside! Also, draw some cute Christmas gift boxes!
