Hello, I'm Jeannette Conner, a visual artist for eight plus years, and today I'm going to show you how to made homemade 3-D Christmas cards. For this project, you're going to need two different sets of card paper, little characters for your pop ups and glue and scissors. So first, we're going to start by making the slits for your pop outs. So, we're going to fold this in half and make two different sets of slits. They don't have to be very big, wherever you want to place them is fine. And then you're just going to make your slits fold the other direction. You're going to take your little characters and your just going to glue them right down to the bottom part of the slit so that when you open it up they stand up. So, I'm just going to put some glue on that right there and then I'm going to press it down and press them down and then just fold it and press some more so they're really stuck in there and then when you open it up they should pop up, pop up just like that and then you can write your special greeting in here. So, we're going to fold this back. Obviously this isn't very attractive so now we're going to take more glue and go around the edges. I'll do it to both sides just like that and then on the inside of this one also just go around with glue really good and I'm going to take this and press it down in there, close it and make sure it's good and there you have it and on the outside we'll just put some happy holidays. On the inside we'll say, write a special little message. I'm going to say hope Santa Claus brings you a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year and to make it extra special I'm just going to go over what I wrote in glitter. It's a little difficult to write with glitter because it kind of gets smeary but just take your time. It's good to kind of just make one line at a time and because I feel like Happy New should be in blue, we'll use blue. And if you want to you can always decorate the inside with some more things. So, this is how your own DYI 3-D Christmas card. This was Jeanette Conner, and today I taught you how to make homemade 3-D Christmas cards.
