white cardstock

heavy fabric, such as twill, linen, or cotton

crayons, markers, or paints



  1. Cut a 10 x 4-inch piece of cardstock. Fold it in half so you have a card that opens.

  2. On the front of the card, draw a manger so it looks like you are looking down on it.

  3. On another piece of cardstock, draw a baby Jesus that is about 2 inches long. Cut out the figure.

  4. Cut a 3-inch square of fabric. Glue the baby near the top of one corner. Fold up the bottom point so you can see the baby’s face, and then fold in the two sides across the baby. Glue the fabric in place.

  5. Glue the wrapped baby onto the manger.
