Kid Photo Christmas Tree Card
I’m one of those people who keeps every Christmas card I receive. In fact, there is a drawer in our living room crammed full of cards from years past. (Note to self: time to make a scrapbook to better display them!)
I especially love handmade and photo cards – the personal touch makes holiday wishes even more meaningful!
The girls and I had a blast creating this photo surprise Christmas tree card! The ornaments on our handmade Christmas tree card slide to reveal kid photos below. Family and friends are sure to love these!
- Cardstock (green, red, brown, yellow, and white)
- Brass fasteners (1 per photo)
- Magic Stix washable markers
Here’s an easy video demo:
How to make this photo Christmas tree card:
Cut green cardstock into a triangle shape — this will be the base of your card.
Cut out a photo of each child in the shape of a circle. Then cut a slightly larger circle out of colored cardstock, one per photo. We used red and white, but you can use any color you’d like for your ornaments.
Glue each photo onto your green cardstock tree.
Punch a hole in the top of each cardstock ornament. Use a brass fastener to attach an ornament over each photo on the tree. The ornaments will be free to slide to reveal the photos glued below.
Cut out a yellow star and glue to the top of your tree. Cut out a brown rectangle and glue to the bottom of your tree to make the trunk.
This is what it will look like on the back of the card:
Now it’s time to decorate!
I had each girl sign their nickname on their ornament, then we wrote a Christmas message on the tree itself. This part is up to your imagination!
We used Magic Stix markers because they are washable and guaranteed not to dry out for up to 7 days without the cap! (Seriously!) I can’t tell you how many other markers I’ve had to pitch because they’ve been left out for a couple days. Not anymore with Magic Stix!
Plus, if you have little artists that tend to get marker on their hands, washable is always a plus!

We’ve been fans of The Pencil Grip Inc. for years now – we use their super fast-drying Kwik Stix paint markers all the time! (Check out our tape resist art using Kwik Stix here). These are at the top of my list of recommended kids art supplies too!
