Steps to Make a DIY Grinch Card

1. Print off the template on white cardstock.

The thicker the better, we like over 100lb paper and cut out the area for the ornament.

You can get the free printable template at the bottom of the post (make sure to sign up on the form with the preview of the grinch card template).

Printing tips: You’ll want to make sure when printing you fit to size for your printer settings and that the template is centered on the right side of the paper (when printed and holding upright). Every printer and printer setting is different so you may need to adjust the size of the template when printing. There should be a setting called “scale” where you can adjust it to 80% or 90% of size or you can check the box for “fit to page”.

Bend the paper slightly to make a cut mark and then you can cut around the inside of the template. Leave the black outline so that the outline of the bulb will remain.

2. Paint or color the front of the card. Paint the Grinch hand green and the arm red.

3. Glue or tape the transparent plastic sheet to the inside of the card.

You can use double-sided tape to make it flat against the cardstock.

4. Add dual adhesive foam mounts around the edge of the bulb on the inside of the card.

Set them a bit back from the bulb opening so that you do not see the mounts on the front of the card.

Then add small silver sequins inside the bulb area.

5. Add the picture onto the back to keep the sequins in place.

The picture should stick onto the adhesive mounts.

7. Write a special Christmas message inside.

You can even add “Merry Grinchmas” inside.

  1. I made those Grinch Christmas cards last Christmas for all my family on my Christmas list. They turned out so cute.

  2. Shelby London

    Love this template and will use this for my parents of the children in my class.

  3. I love this card idea. It’s so easy and cute. The ‘Merry Grinchmas’ for the inside of the card is a good idea and so funny. It would be lovely to send to Grandparents or Godparents. Thank you for the template. The card could be decorated so many different ways. Merry Christmas from Ireland. xxx
