That Christmas Feeling - How to Draw a Christmas Tree Activity

Important Tip: When drawing the star, start drawing the mountain peak,
next to and below the point of the Christmas Tree as seen in 
the diagram below. Unless, of course, you want your star
to be floating above your tree as though it is sparkling in the sky.

Onesie Mumsie Mother's Day Card & Paper Doll Activity
This artwork is for personal use only and is not permitted to be used for resale or commercial purposes.

You will need:
Coloured pencils or felt markers
Scissors
Glue
A4 sheet of coloured craft paper
Optional - scraps of fabric or wrapping paper

First you will need to print out the above printable template at actual size (100%).

Step 1. Colour in Onesie Girl paper doll, pillow and quilt.
For a collage option, you can cut small squares of scrap fabric or leftover wrapping paper and glue them onto the quilt squares. The wording can be covered with your own message square or a patterned paper square if your child just wants to make a bed and paper doll to play with. Colour and decorate the template however you like!

Step 2. Cut out Onesie Girl paper doll, pillow and quilt.



Step 3. Fold an A4 sheet of coloured craft paper to make an A5 size card.



Step 4. Glue pillow onto front (top centre) of the A5 size card.


Then apply glue under three edges of the quilt, making sure the top and middle has no glue applied to it and paste quilt onto front (lining up with the bottom) of the A5 size card.


Onesie Girl paper doll remains free (unstuck) and can slide under her quilt when it's time to go to bed.
