1. Ho Ho Ho Hand


Simple, yet effective – this handy Santa makes a great Christmas treat! The easiest way is to use white finger paint and make a hand print on a piece of card.

Once the white is dry, paint your smiley face and add a red Santa hat on top. You could also use white modelling clay for a 3D effect.

2. Reindeer ‘Nose’ Best

Keep the finger paints out! This reindeer knows the best way to wish someone a Happy Christmas. You just need card, red paper, finger paints and a black pen to recreate this Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.

3. Woolly Christmas Trees


This cute design will look great as a Christmas card. All you need is a piece of wool or ribbon, which you can glue into a wiggly tree shape on your Xmas card.

Add some stickers, pieces of tinsel, or little jewels for the baubles and you’ve got a classy tree card.

4. 3D Xmas Trees


These 3D Xmas trees will be a great treat to receive in the post.

You’ll need 2 layers of card to get the desired effect. Cut the sides of triangles on the top piece of card, and increase the triangle sizes to form the shape of a Christmas tree.

Then fold down the triangle on the bottom edge, and you’ll get your 3DXmas tree! Add some drops of glitter glue, or stickers to make your baubles!
