We have the most wonderful and simple (even though it does not look like) festive tree Christmas card idea to share with you.
Follow our easy step by step tutorial and you will be making these in no time (and impressing the people receiving them). These are a great kid made cards, with a huge wow factor.
We do love a good kid made Christmas card, and this particular one looks amazing! What’s great about this design is that you can modify it to fit any age group – you can make a simplified version even preschoolers will manage or you can make an advanced one with many “cuts” that will make a great project with no age limit for kids at heart.
Nothing really beats homemade Christmas cards, I am always excited to make them, and even more excited to receive them (we have quite a collection from my nephew and friends).
How to Make a DIY Easy Festive Tree Christmas Card
What you need:
- white construction paper for card (any other color works too, you can also get blank cards)
- red or blue construction paper for base (any other color or pattern works too)
- green paper (regular or construction) – again other colors are fine too
- a little bit of brown paper
- gemstone star for decorating (optional)
If you feel your Christmas cards needs to be even more festive – glitter glue is the way to go.

Follow the Step by Step Instructions
First let’s make a card base. We are using letter/A4 sized heavier print paper or construction paper to make ours. First we fold it in half.
This will make it easier for them to fold make their Christmas tree fit on the card, while older kids (and kids at heart) can just go straight to cutting the tree measured by “eye”.
You will need to cut diagonal slits (starting on the folded end).
Glue the red (or any other color) rectangle on the base card.
Starting from the bottom, fold down every other “triangle”, gluing the tips to the base (this is best seen on the video tutorial you can find at the end of this tutorial).
