A Manger Christmas Card To Color, Cut and Fold




First print out the picture below onto card stock.  Click on the picture to make it large, then copy and paste it or right click and save it as a picture.

Here is a diagram on how to fold the card.  I will also show you with a series of pictures.
First cut out the manger and the scripture sign as seen below:
Then with the back side of a knife and a ruler, score the card to make clean folds.  First score the two inside folds as shown below. Score right along the outside edge of the stable beam as seen in the diagram.  Be careful not to cut through the card.
Then score outside folds. Score right along side of the stable beam on the inside as seen below:
The card should fold as the picture below:
I would have the children color the card before you glue on the scripture.  It looks best if you also color the back side of the two panels that show from the front.

After the children have colored the card then glue the scripture cutout to one side of the front as shown below:

Here it is finished:
And here it is folded:
