Christmas and the New Year Projects - a Handmade Volume Card with Snowmen, Stepwise Instructions

Making cards with your children is an exciting pastime developing kids` abilities and creativity. Little ones like making things and they`ll help you with great pleasure; elder children will be able to make this card on their own using our step by step instructions. We`ll tell you how to make a card with a dance of figures — snowmen here (If you wish, you can add bunny-rogues, matrioshkas, dolls to this dance). Let them dance gaily on the card.

For making a Card you`ll need:

— thick paper (cardboard),
— colored paper,
— paints, gouache,
— scissors,
— glue and brushes,
— napkins (to remove the excess glue).

Making a Volume Christmas Card with Snowmen:

1. Prepare white thick paper in size 16x24 cm. Glue blue paper onto it along the central fold.

2. Fold the white paper 10x20 cm in half on its long side. Divide the out sides in half with the dotted line and bend its edges to the central fold. You`ll have a small accordion.

3. Draw a Snowman on the accordion.

4. Cut the Snowman without unfolding the accordion. Note: Don`t cut to the end of the part on its folds so as to have a single chain.

7. Glue the back sides of the first and last snowmen. Glue the last snowmen to the card so that the folding lines of the card and snowmen can coincide.

8. You can glue clouds onto the card — they are cut from an accordion folded in four.

9. Close the card, bending the unstuck snowmen forward. Open the card — the snowmen (clouds and snowdrifts come to the fore).

Useful advice:

* Make a nice inscription on the out side of the card: Congratulations! Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!
* Decorate the card with snowflakes; draw or glue tiny pieces of cotton.
