Make them yourself or buy them

Tomorrow is the 1st of December. Now it won’t be long before Christmas. It is high time to think about Christmas cards.

Would you like to make your own cards? Here you can find links to my free tutorials:

It is not difficult to create the pop-up card “Christmastree”, but you should allow enough time for the assembling. The result is definitely worth the effort!

If you don’t have much time, you can still make the pop-up card “Star” at the very last minute.

    • Hi, this might be a misunderstanding. Please read the headline: ”MAKE THEM YOURSELF OR BUY THEM“. Some of the pop-up cards on this page are DIY projects for which I am providing free templates. Other designs on this page are commercial pop-up cards that are sold by my clients. (E.g. the MoMA Store). Of course, I am not allowed to share the templates for my commercial projects! All available templates can be found here: Designs that are NOT on this list are not available as free tutorials. I hope that I could help you with my answer. All the best, Peter
