DIY: 3D Christmas Cards

Here’s another handmade Christmas card project! I actually made this one weeks ago and completely forgot about it, but as I sat behind my books studying into the night yesterday, I remembered that I did. Because that’s what studying does to you right? You forget the very thing you just read but you can recall the color of the shoes your barista was wearing last Tuesday. Blergh!

Okay let’s get straight to the point, shall we? You only need some very basic supplies to make this. Unfortunately I don’t have any process photos like I usually do but it’s pretty easy to grasp even without them.

What you need:


Small squares of 4/5 different types of cardstock/patterned paper

Bakers twine


Blank card


What I did was, I basically cut different sizes of the squares that I wanted to be the gift boxes. Try placing them on your blank card as you do this so you have a good idea of what sized will work. Also – don’t limit yourself to just squares!IMG_2948

I then glued bakers twine on the squares so they looked more like wrapped presents.


Finally, I cut tiny pieces of felt and stuck them to the back of the gift squares, then I stuck these onto the blank card. You can double up or triple up felt pieces to get the gift squares to look “farther away” from the card. Catch my drift?

And that’s all folks!
