3D Christmas Tree Card Printable
With one week left until Christmas day, and school nearly out for the winter break, you might find this little two-page Christmas Card printable project useful, especially if you’re cooped up indoors due to bad weather like we were this weekend! We took our printouts to grandma and grandpa’s house and had a jolly little coloring-in party while drinking hot chocolate and listening to the rain pouring down outside.
I’ve made three versions of this tree card for you to choose from. All three are available to be printed on either letter-sized or A4 paper, and all three 3D Christmas Tree card printables use the same tree base and star topper:
The first version is a color printable of the 3D tree, where the tree is already colored for you and you just have to color-in the decorations on the tree:
The second version is a black and white version of the 3D Christmas Tree printable, for if you want to color the whole thing yourself, or not use a color printer, or make multiple photocopies for a larger group of kids:
Finally, for those of you that want total freedom to decorate your tree however you please, there is a third version with no decorations on the 3D Tree card. This is also a black and white printable:
Once you’ve got your choice of tree printed on some cardstock, along with the page that has the tree base and the star topper, you can get coloring and cutting.
Scoring lines from the tip of the tree to the spaces between the tabs at the bottom will help you to fold your tree neatly.
Glue the long tab down the side of the tree to form it into a cone with an octagonal base, and then glue your little star topper on. As a nice surprise you could fill the tree cone with candy or a small gift before you glue it onto the base.
Finally, you just need to write on the gift tag that is printed on the base and your card is all ready to go off to someone special.
We made several for teachers and friends. Here are a few of the plain trees we decorated with stickers and finger painting. So many variations are possible, and you can tailor the tree decorations to the recipient.
Inexpensive office stickers and star-reward stickers make easy decorations, and we got some lovely results with glitter gel pens too!
Hope you enjoy making your own 3D Christmas Tree cards with these printables and gifting them to loved ones.
