How to make your own Christmas cards with a mouse

  • colored paper (red, yellow, light pink and green)
  • black marker
  • white marker

Step-by-step instructions

A card

Start by making a card. You will need a sheet of paper, cardboard is best. You can make a large card by folding a letter-sized or A4-sized piece of paper in half. Alternatively, you can make smaller cards by cutting a letter-sized or A4-sized piece of paper in half and folding it.

Step 1


After folding the card, cut a rectangle of white paper the same size as the folded card. Fold the white paper in half (along the longer edge).

Use a pencil to draw a diagonal line from the top (starting at the folded edge) to the edge, ending the line about half the length of the paper.

Step 2

Now cut along this line.

Step 3

Open the paper and you will see a triangle on top of a rectangle (house shape).

Apply glue to the rectangular part of the white paper. Do not apply glue to the triangle part.

Stick it onto the card, aligning the bottom of the white paper with the bottom of the red card.

Step 4


Bend the top triangle, apply glue to the head and glue the head to the “mouse body”.

Step 5

bearded people

Cut thin strips from black construction paper.

Step 6

Glue them on top of each other to look like whiskers, then glue them onto the bend of the white paper.

Step 7

Take a pink pom-pom and stick it in the middle.

Step 8


Our mice need ears! Cut an ear-like shape from white paper and a smaller piece from light pink paper.

Paste one on top of the other. Repeat this step to create the remaining ear.

Step 9

Glue the ears to the red card – behind the curved mouse head.

Step 10

Draw two small eyes with a black marker. You can also use googly eyes.

Step 11


Now it’s time to turn this regular mouse into a Christmas mouse. Cut a yellow rectangle and stick it on the mouse.

Step 12

Cut two green strips to fit the gift and glue them into a cross shape.

Step 13


To make the bow, cut a longer green strip. Twist one end to create a bow loop and glue.

Step 14

Repeat the curling process on the other side and glue the bow to the center of the gift.

Step 15

Watch your hands

Cut two wider white strips and glue each strip to one side of the mouse’s body.

Step 16

Apply glue to the end of the arms and bend them so the mouse looks like it’s holding a gift.

Step 17


Time to add some snowflakes! Use a white chalk marker to draw snowflakes. Additionally, you can also let your child use Q-tips dipped in paint or even use their fingers to create snowflakes.
