Handcrafted Hanukkah Card


Handcrafted Hanukkah Card

Design a paper Menorah for a friend or loved one this season with the Handcrafted Hanukkah Card tutorial from Fiskars. This is a handmade card idea that uses the Fiskars punch to create many small bits of punched paper. These punched-out shapes are then arranged into a Menorah with all the candles lit. You can then print out a special greeting to add to the front of the card. This is an easy project for a beginner.

  1. Fold a piece of 6.25 inch x 9 1/2 inch cardstock in half. Mark the center of the card along the top and bottom edges and lightly pencil a line connecting them.
  2. Using the Double Bubble Border Punch, punch patterned paper and adhere it to the bottom edge.

  3. From various patterned papers, punch two hearts using the That's Amore Squeeze Punch and 3 hearts using the Heart Lever Punch. Create the branch for the shamash using the pencil line as placement for the hearts.

  4. Punch lots of small shapes to create the 8 remaining branches of the Menorah. I used hearts that I punched using the Heart Corner Lever Punch. You could also use the Heart Hand Punch or even use circles.
  5. Cut a 1/8 inch strip of paper using a Fiskars paper trimmer and cut nine 1/2 inch candles from it.
  6. To easily create flames, use an inverted heart punched using the Heart Lever Punch for the shamash and the leaf from the Perfect Pear Squeeze Punch for the remaining 8 candles.
  7. Run a zig-zag stitch across the top of front if desired.
  8. Print out a sentiment and add it to the front of the card to finish it.
