Instructions for making your Santa Claus Card
Step 1: Download and print out the Santa card template. I found it easiest to print out the template on white cardstock paper. That way your Santa beard card, hat pom-pom and hat band are all ready for you to cut out and use.
Use the other page of the template as a guide to trace and cut out the other card pieces out of colored cardstock paper. Cut out the Santa face with cream or any skin tone color cardstock. Then cut out the Santa hat with red cardstock.

Step 2: Fold the Santa beard in half along the dashed line on the template to create the beard and card.
Step 3: Glue the hat band at the bottom of the triangle Santa hat. Bend down the top of the triangle card to look like the hat is floppy. Add glue at the end of the hat and glue on the white hat pom-pom.

Step 4: Using a glue stick, add glue on the top one-third of the Santa face. Place the Santa hat on the glue.
Step 5: Add glue on the bottom one-third of the Santa face. Then place the folded beard on the glue.

Step 6: Use Glue Dots or a glue stick to glue your small red pom-pom nose on your Santa Card. Then glue googly eyes on your Santa face.
Step 7: Open up your Santa card. Use a marker to write a greeting on the inside of the card like “Merry Christmas” or “Ho Ho Ho! Happy Holidays!” Give your Christmas card to someone to brighten their day!
