3D angel Christmas card

A little clever cutting can have an angel seemingly popping from the paper of this handmade card. This also works well with other Christmas motifs such as a Christmas tree or star.

You'll need:

  • Plain coloured card
  • Patterned paper
  • Scalpel
  • Cutting board
  • Cardboard angel template (cut one out from your own drawing or a copied one)
  • Scissors
  • Double-sided sticky sheets or double-sided tape



Step one

Place the cardboard template in the centre of the card and use your scalpel to cut around the angel, leaving the centre of the bottom and top intact.

Step two

You should have the top centre of the halo and bottom centre of the dress uncut – like the image above.

Step three

Carefully fold the sides of the angel inwards so they stick up a little.

Step four

Use your template to cut an angel shape out of the patterned paper.

Step five

Cut a strip of double-sided tape and stick it in the centre of the angel. Next, stick the patterned angel on the top, slightly bend the sides of the patterned angel inwards a little too for a 3D effect.
