Spread good tidings with this adorable kid-made Handprint Angel Christmas Card!
Handprint Angel Christmas Card
Interestingly, the design for this handprint angel Christmas card came to me in a dream, and my youngest daughter and I made it that very morning!
This sweet kid-made card is perfect to make for family, and it is a keepsake that they’ll want to keep for years to come!
Best of all, you don’t need any fancy supplies to make it!
- Cardstock (red, white, off-white, peach)
- Yellow pipe-cleaner
- Hot glue gun or craft glue
- Metallic gold marker
Here’s an easy video demo:
How to make our handprint angel Christmas card
Start by folding an 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of red cardstock in half for your card. You can also use construction paper if that’s what you have on hand — I just like yardstick because it is a tad smoother and sturdier.
Fold a piece of white cardstock in half and place child’s hand on top, with the wrist at the fold. We happened to have a piece of glittery white cardstock in our collection, but you can also use plain white and paint with glitter for the same effect.
Trace child’s hand and cut out. Unfold and you’ll have two handprints attached at the middle to use as your angel wings.
Cut a narrow triangle out of the off-white cardstock — about 6 inches tall and 4 inches wide at the base. Accordion fold the triangle (about 1/2 inch between folds) to create texture.
Cut a circle from peach cardstock or craft foam (which is what we used), about the diameter of a ping-pong ball.
Create a halo using a 3-4 inch piece of yellow pipe-cleaner, wrapped around itself to form an oval.
Glue the angel wings to the front of your card, with the bottom of the hands/wrist almost exactly in the middle of the card.
Then attach the angel’s body (triangle cardstock), head (peach craft foam or cardstock), and halo (yellow pipe-cleaner).
We finished our handprint angel card with a Christmas bible verse that seemed just perfect:
And the angel said unto them,
Fear not: for, behold,
I bring you good tidings of great joy,
which shall be to all people.” – Luke 2:10
