St. Nicholas Candy Cane Cards

Large card with regular candy cane

Give St. Nicholas a real candy crozier— a regular or a mini-size candy cane!

These are nice to make for a class or to distribute to neighbors or colleagues. Print in color or black-and-white to color with markers or crayons.

Materials

  • Bright white cover stock, 67 lb to have a card sturdy enough to support the candy cane
  • Candy canes: regular for larger cards; mini for smaller ones
  • Paper cutter is helpful to cut the cards apart

If children will be making the cards it is helpful to pre-cut the slits before giving the cards to the children to color the St. Nicholas figures. If using the small cards for a children’s project, choose to tape the mini-candy canes onto the cards. Using the cut slits would just lead to frustration.

Directions for large cards

  • Print desired PDF: either color or b/w
  • Cut the cards apart
  • Carefully cut slits above and below the hand, an execto knife makes it easy to do, especially if you are making a quantity
  • Insert candy cane

Directions for small cards

  • Print desired PDF: either color or b/w
  • Cut the cards apart
  • Tape a small candy cane over St. Nicholas’ hand; you may want to turn the candy cane inside the cellophane so the overlap is behind the candy cane
  • Or, if you want to fuss more, cut slits along the hand and a bit beyond
  • Trim the excess overlap cellophane off and turn the candy cane so just one layer of cellophane will be on top
  • Roll the cellophane wrapper below the candy cane to insert through the slots, carefully pulling the candy cane through the slits
