We do love a card that pops and this Christmas card tree pop up card does just that.
What I love the most about this card is that you can make it super easy for small kids – just using one “layer” for the tree, or make it more complex for older kids and grown ups by making your tree multi – layered as each layer is trickier to fold and needs more fine motor skills.
No matter how many layers you use though, this one is super cute looking. You can simply stick to paper only, or you can decorate it even further and add glitter or gemstones on the tree to make it look even more festive.
No need to have this one as a card either, it looks wonderful “opened up” so will make a great project for the classroom.

Or Follow the Step by Step Instructions
You can either purchase or make your own card bases out of construction paper.
For younger kids you will just need one bigger circle while older kids can handle more.
Fold the half circles in half (cone looking like shape).
With the half circle unfolded, look at the fold in the middle. Make a mountain fold.
Take the folded half circle, apply glue on the back of the last folds on both sides (remember the middle fold has to be a moutain fold, facing up).
