Stained Glass Christmas Tree Card

Stained Glass Christmas Tree Card

Posted 2017-12-16 by My Splendid Familyfollow
This cute and fun Christmas card can be made by little ones with the help of an adult. Older children can make it all by themselves.



Time: 10 minutes
Age: Under 5's, 5 to 10s
Level: Easy

Materials
  • White cardboard for the card
  • (optional) envelope
  • (optional) Christmas tree shaped cookie cutter
  • Pencil for tracing
  • Scissors
  • Black marker
  • Green and gold pens
  • Clear packing tape (or clear adhesive book covering)
  • Red paper (we recycled a red Christmas envelope)
  • Hole-punch
  • Green cellophane

  • Method
  • Make a card using the white cardboard. Make sure it fits the envelope if using one.
  • Place the Christmas tree cookie cutter on the card and trace around the shape using a pencil. Alternatively, draw your own Christmas tree freehand. Allow enough room at the top of the card for your Christmas greeting.



  • Cut out the centre of the Christmas tree.



  • Using a green pen, write "Merry Christmas" at the top of the card.
  • Using a gold pen, draw a star at the top of the Christmas tree.
  • Place some scrap cardboard behind the Christmas tree cutout and draw around the edges of the cutout to make the tree stand out.



  • From the inside of the card, cover the cutout with clear packing tape (or clear adhesive book covering).



  • Using the hole punch, make baubles for the tree with the red paper.
  • Cut out small green cellophane triangles with the scissors.



  • Place the red baubles on the sticky side of the tape.
  • Scatter the green cellophane triangles over the sticky side of the tape (just like glitter) until all the sticky spots have been covered.
  • Tap the card and gently wipe over the tree with your fingers to remove any loose cellophane.
