Handmade Pine Tree Holiday Cards

Looking for a quick handmade holiday card the kiddos can craft up using items you probably already have on-hand?? These pine tree cards are so much fun to make, and we are looking forward to mailing them to far away friends and relatives! Added bonus — the kids were SO proud of their finished cards!!

To make your own, cut a paper cupcake liner into quarters. (You didn’t think we would actually bake with these, did you?) Try to contain your excitement for using the scissors!

Use a thumb print to form the trunk of the tree (those little finger prints are SO cute!!), and layer the cupcake liners to form the branches. We used small rolls of tape to adhere them onto the card.

Marvel at the awesomeness!!

Mail to far away friends and relatives. Who wouldn’t want to receive a little colorful pine tree in the mail? It’s like a tiny ray of sunshine!

Have fun!!

  1. I love the bright colours. That is a great teacher’s card Valerie – will pop that into my favourites for next year 🙂

  2. Thanks for the idea! This will be perfect to send to the grandparents and great-grandparents as Christmas cards! Wish I had as colorful cupcake liners, the silver is especially festive.

  3. Yesterday I was just looking at these fun muffin liners and considering different ideas. This is a great one to add to the mix. Thank you.

  4. Awww…… Mark’s behind on his commenting 🙂

    I love the liners. We made lots of cards last year and then didn’t get them mailed. How’s that for sad?

    • Dear Ticia,

      I was devastated. You see, Val called me asking where the cupcake liners were and I was eagerly anticipating cupcakes after returning from work. She cut them up!


  5. These are so cute! I wish we had something that white cupcake liners.

  6. Very cute! I love all the colors.

  7. Love it! Very cute and so lovely bright colours!

  8. So easy and cute! Will try this too.

  9. Doing this with my daughter’s preschool class this week. We are going to use sequins to decorate them. 16 3 year olds!

  10. These are so cute! I wouldn’t bake with them…but that’s because I can’t bake!

  11. Oh boy, am I behind! This is super cute!!

  12. Thanks for the inspiration, we made scenes using this technique. The blog post about it will be live next week and I did reference your post as inspiration!
