cupcake liner christmas card craft for kids

Yes, I know its not even October yet but it’s never to early to start thinking about Christmas! We actually made these last year right before Christmas but we were so busy get ready for the big day that I didn’t actually get around to sharing them in time. These adorable cupcake liner Christmas cards were so easy for the older kids to make and look just as good as any store bought alternative, which is why i’m sharing them in september – just in case I forgot them again (i probably would!!)

Here’s what we used

  • Cupcake cases
  • Coloured card
  • Scissors
  • Glue

How to make these cupcake liner Christmas cards.

Take your first cupcake liner and fold it in half with the design facing outwards. Fold the two end corners into the bottom middle of the cupcake case to make a triangular shape.

Add some glue to the folded sides of the cupcake case and secure it down onto your card. Then repeat the previous step with another cake case but this time fold it 2/3rs of the way inwards instead of to the centre so that its a bit wider. Glue your second cupcake case down tucked just inside the first cake case.

Repeat this process a third time, this time only fold the sides in about 1/3rd of the way to the centre so that its bigger again. Glue the third cupcake case down so that its tucked just inside the middle one.

Cut out and glue a star as your tree topper and a rectangle for the trunk. Add any optional decorations and a message inside then the card is ready to gift!
