These pop up Christmas cards are easy to make, thanks to the fact that you can now get circle paper punches in a variety of sizes.
Just be sure to cut all the circles and flakes ahead of time. Don’t make the mistake I did which was to think I could punch out plenty while students worked. Stress is when students are using circles faster than you can make them. An alternative is to buy extra punches so students can cut their own. Mine are always pretty fascinated with how a perfect circle can come out from a single punch.
• Card stock paper: colored for card, white for snowman, scraps of brown and black for arms and hat
• Circle punch, 3″
• Circle punch, 2″
• Circle punch, 1.5″
• Snowflake punch, small
• Glue stick
• Markers, black, orange
PREP: Cut five of each size circle out of white card stock, and about 5 or so snowflakes.
1. Students start with five of the 3″ circles. Each is folded in half and creased. They are stacked together like a sandwich and glued in between. When done, glue the two sides to the bottom of the card.
2. Repeat Step 1 with the 2″ circles to make the center of the snowman.
3. Repeat Step 1 with the 1.5″ circles to make the top of the snowman.
4. Cut out scraps to make arms and hat.
5. Use markers to draw the face.
