Today I’m going to show you how to make a very special greeting card for the Christmas Holiday. In particular I’m going to show you how to make a Pop-up Christmas card. Anyone receiving this Christmas card will love it… not only because it came from you, but also because of the 3-D effect of the card. In this post I will show you how to make a Pop-up Christmas tree that actually sticks out of the card when opened. Add a special note to your card and it is ready to send out for Christmas to a friend or family member.

Laura from Dacian Moon Handmade will show you how to make this, step by step.
Fold the cardboard in half.
Fold the upper corners outward at about 2/3 of their height…
… like this.
At 2/3 of height, cut in waves until you reach the crease…
… it will look like this.
Make another 2 – 3 waved cuts…
… like this.
Press the lower part (under the first cut) behind…
… like this. It will look like the tree stem.
Fold the green paper in half.
Apply a layer of glue on the cardboard until you reach the creases…
… and place it over the green paper, like this.
Do the same on the other part.
Take the green pen …
and write “Seasons Greetings” beside the tree.
Add some glitter glue globes on the tree and your greeting card is ready .
And, there you have it. You just made a beautiful and festive Pop-up Greeting card for Christmas. The receiver will love it!!
