Santa Handprint Card

Take a sheet of white cardstock and fold it in half. Trace the handprint, ensuring that the little finger aligns with the folded part. Cut the Card out.

Next, cut out pieces for the moustache and hat using white and red paper. For the face, cut an acorn-shaped piece from a brown or skin-coloured sheet.

Arrange and adhere the cut pieces to the handprint. Stick the googly eyes and pom-pom in their respective places. Your Santa creation is now ready for you to write a festive message on the inner side. Enjoy crafting!
