How to make a Santa card craft
Download and print the santa printable template. It comes with step-by-step instructions and the Santa card template. You can print out the instructions (Pages 1 and 2) on white A4 construction paper.
(Pages 3, 4, and 5 are the colored versions of the Santa card template. You can print out the template on three white A4 cardstocks. If you want to color in your own Santa card, you can print pages 6, 7, and 8 on three white A4 cardstocks.)
Cut out all the parts of the template.
Fold the card (the long oval-shaped piece) in half with the colored side coming outside.
Stick Santa’s beard on the top of the card with the straight edge aligning with the folded side.
We are going to make Santa’s face now. Get the small oval-shaped piece. Stick Santa’s hair above it with the two ends touching the dashed line.
Now, stick the card above Santa’s face covering the dashed line.
Let’s stick Santa’s eyes, nose, and the moustache now.
Now, we will give a hat to our Santa. Stick the red triangle above the hair on the top. Then stick the white rectangular paper strip above it and trim off the edges. Finally, stick the circle shape on the top of the hat.
Stick Santa’s black belt on the card and trim off the extra bits from both sides. Now, stick the yellow rectangle on the top of the belt.
Open the card and write your Christmas message inside!
Our beautiful Santa card is ready! Isn’t it cute?!
