Snowman Pop Up Cards for Christmas

December is my favorite crafting month of the year, especially because the kids and I get to make some Snowman Pop Up cards for Christmas.

How to Make 3D Snowman Card

In our house we try to make any much decor, cards and gifts as possible. Nowadays homemade crafts are so highly thought of. My Mother and Father love handmade gifts from the kids, and they keep them as keepsakes.

Our local card shops are crazy busy all throughout December so sometimes it is just as handy to make some 3D Christmas cards pop up. These are better than anything you will find in the shop, plus you can personalize and add your own message. 

Previously I have made Mother’s Day cards and flower greeting cards, but this year was the first time I made a 3D Snowman card with a Christmas theme. 

I absolutely love how it turned out. My kids love a good snowman and this one comes bearing Christmas presents.
