The process of making your own Christmas card and gifting or sending it to your loved ones is treasured for a child and a keepsake they will cherish for years to come.

We love making Christmas crafts and cards, and I guess this snowman pop-up card is a bit of both.

It’s pretty simple to do, once you figure out how to fold and cut the different parts, and I’m sure once your kids have mastered this, they’ll find all sorts of different characters that can be made from the same way.

How to make a snowman pop-up card

What do you need:

  • white construction paper
  • colored construction paper for the map base (or you can buy the map bases)
  • brown paper
  • black paper
  • orange marker or pencil
  • black marker or pencil
  • the scissors
  • glue

Watch the video tutorial

Follow the tutorial step by step

Take the base map (opened/unfolded) and place it on the white construction paper and trace around.

We make our base cards by cutting a letter/A4 size sheet of paper in half and folding that half in half. Small and cute.

Cut the white paper.

Cut it a little, so that it is a little smaller than the colored base.

Fold the white construction paper in half.

Fold well.

Also fold the colored base paper in half. Put aside.

Take the folded white paper and cut two slits, from the folded side to the “open side” – up to about a third.

Fold to one side, no matter where, what matters is to make a neat fold.

Unfold and push the part you cut inside the card (as shown in the image below).

Then, and I recommend you watch the video part for this, you will have to cut two slots again, but only one “page” of the card.

Fold like you did the first time, fold and unfold.

Insert the card, as for the first “step”. You now slowly see the shape of your snowman pop-up card.

If you are working with younger children, the two “snowballs” will suffice, older children can continue to make the third.

It’s time to decorate

Once you have all the parts of your snowman ready, unfold the map flat and draw all the details, black eyes, mouth and buttons and an orange carrot for the nose.

Cut two thin strips of brown paper and glue them together like sticks for your snowman’s hands.

Add a scrap paper wrap.

And a hat to complete your pop-up snowman card look.

Close the card and apply glue to one side.

Paste it into the colored paper base.

Apply glue to the other side and close the card.

Finished! Your snowman pop-up card is complete.
