Make a Snowflake Christmas Card

Great ideas for how to make a snowflake Christmas card and gift tags!

 

Snowflake Pattern Card and Tag CraftsIt’s fun and easy to make a snowflake and then use the pattern to create Christmas Cards.

If you've forgotten how to fold paper to make a snowflade, just scroll down for a Cutout Fold Pattern Guide.

Using colored construction paper, cut a rectangle to 8 inches by 6 inches. Fold the 8 inch side in half so that you have a 6 by 4 inch card. Cut out a Snowflake Design and glue to the front of the card. Be creative and cut out two or three different snowflakes and make it snow. For an extra bit of color, glue a ribbon along one side of the cover. I like to use a hole-punch tool to make small circles of colored paper and glue them in random patterns around the snowflakes.

Snowflake StencilMaking gift labels is easy with snowflakes too. Just cut out a small square, rectangle or oval in construction paper and glue on a snowflake. Write your greeting and who the package is for and attach to the gift with a ribbon tied through a hole made with a hole-punch tool.

Here is a Free Christmas Stencil of a snowflake. This stencil was used to make a snowflake card and then the paper that it was cut from was used to make another card (look closely at the picture at the top). So, you see, one pattern cut out can make two cards. This way you'll make fast work of the greetings and gift tags.

But the same works for any snowflake cut out. Always save the paper left behind after making your Paper Snowflakes because that can be used by putting a different color paper behind and the cut out pattern stands out.

Snowflake Crafts and IdeasOnce you've rediscovered the art of how to make a snowflake, you'll find many projects for them like Using Snowflake Patterns to Create a 3-D Centerpiece. These red and green snowflakes cast a pretty shadow and will stand anywhere. What's best is they fold up so they can be easily stored and brought out year after year.

Make a snowflake and paint it on a napkin for a unique festive look to your table. Read more about this Snowflake Craft idea which will also tell you more about painting on other fabrics for gifts.

Make a snowflake and make someone feel special by using Snowflake Designs For Gifts. And while you're at it, you'll need some very unique wrappings for those very unique gifts. Why not make your own? They can even match your gift tags. Find out more at Christmas Craft Ideas.

I know that your family and friends will enjoy getting handmade cards. For more ideas on this subject go to Christmas Card Ideas.

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy Stenciling!
