This 3D card is so much easier than it looks but will make everyone so excited to make and receive.

Colored craft papers
Glitter craft sheet
Select colored craft papers for this craft. The template includes triangle, square, circle and 2 different sizes of teardrop shapes. We’ll be using the triangle shape to make the 3d Christmas tree; the square shape is for making the gift box; the circle shape is for making the ornament and the teardrop shapes are for making the 3d angel. You can select any shape you want. Let’s get started with the triangle shape. Use a pencil to trace the triangle shape on a green colored craft paper and cut out the traced shapes using scissors. I’m using 5 pieces of triangle cutouts to make the 3d Christmas tree.
Grab a triangle paper cutout and fold the triangle into half vertically. Similarly, fold the rest of the triangle paper cutouts.
Trace a small 5 point star pattern on a glitter craft sheet and cut it out nicely. Also, prepare a piece of white or cream paper for the card. The size of the card should be enough to fit the 3d craft on it.
Grab 2 folded triangles and attach them on the card side by side, by keeping their closed (straight side) adjacent to each other. Try to place the triangles on the middle of the card.
Take another folded triangle and apply glue along the closed end. Place the glued side along the middle line of the previously attached folded triangles.
Continue to attach the rest of the folded triangles similarly.
Once you are satisfied with the amount of folded triangles and the 3d paper Christmas tree pattern, you can stop adding folded triangles to the card. Attach the star cutout on the top end of the 3d tree. And done!
Similarly, create the other 3d paper patterns.
