Handmade Christmas Cards with Origami for Adults

As this Christmas card craft involves origami, it might be harder for younger children, so its best suited for adults. Although, the little ones can always take part in the activity as well. Here is an easy video tutorial provided by Divyanshi Rashi Art on how to make the origami Christmas trees:

The ones in the video are of much bigger size, but you get the picture. Just use smaller pieces of paper when making yours, or just make a big Christmas card! Glue the trees to blank paper or a white cardboard sheet. This part can be done by your children. Let them glue other elements on the cards as well, like glittery stars or snowflakes. Here are some ideas of what you can write, depending on who you are sending the card to and what kind of message you are going for.

  • Something meaningful: Wishing you a season full of light and laughter for you and your family.
  • Something funny: Eat. Drink. Be Merry. Have a wonderful Christmas!
  • Something romantic: All I want for Christmas is you. (cheesy, but classic, wouldn’t you say?)
