Handmade Olaf Birthday Card – Frozen


One of Scarlett’s friends is celebrating her 4th birthday and she is a huge fan of frozen. Instead of buying a card I decided to make one with her favourite character ‘Olaf.’

I had lots of fun designing this card and it really is simple to do.

If you want to have a go at making a card like this you will need:

Blue Card – A4 
Pva and pritt stick glue
Silver glitter
Stick on letters
White Card 
Brown Paper 
A pair of stick on googly eyes
An orange & black colouring pencil


To start I mixed in a little pva glue with some silver glitter to get a nice glittery effect. With a paint brush I covered the front of the card and left it to dry completely.


I decided to use some glitter letters for the wording. I wanted a melting snow effect so I stuck the letters I needed onto some white card and cut around each letter with a puddle shape. When your happy glue them into position.


Now it is time to make Olaf. I started off by drawing his body parts in sections the head, feet, top and bottom half and positioned them into place. I did this free hand but there are probably templates you can find online.

With the white card I made the carrot nose, buttons and mouth and coloured them in with the colouring pencils. With the brown paper I carefully cut out Olaf’s hair, eye brows and arms and put them into the ‘waving’ position. Once your happy glue them into place but you do have to have a steady hand so the paper doesn’t tear. 

 The last part to finish off Olaf I added on some goggly eyes.


Now you have your homemade Olaf birthday card.

Scarlett can’t wait to give this birthday card to her friend.
