Free downloadable Christmas Carols Songbook

Untidy song sheets
Has your Christmas sing-along turned into a total mess? Are the first verses of each song spoilt by a frantic shuffling of papers? Printing out the same song sheets every year?
A christmas songbook you can print yourself!
Download and make this proper two-sided xmas carols booklet (see song list below) for free in either A4 or US Letter paper sizes, and use again next year!

What you will need

  1. 11 sheets of A4 or US Letter sized paper per booklet
  2. A “duplex” printer - one that can print on both sides. Manual duplexing is possible if you print odd pages only, then print even pages on the other side, but it's difficult! Or you can print out the sheets single-sided and use a duplexing photocopier to make the booklets.
  3. A long-arm stapler (with a reach of 15 cm / 6 inches). Or use ribbon or string, or see tips below for small staplers.

What to do

  1. Right-click to download either the A4 sized FREE 38 CHRISTMAS CAROLS BOOKLET PDF FILE or US Letter size FREE 38 CHRISTMAS CAROLS BOOKLET PDF FILE.
  2. Print all the sheets out in duplex mode, using “Short Edge Binding” mode. They’ll look like they’re in a crazy jumbled order at the moment.
  3. Lay down the pile of sheets in the order it printed so the front cover is face down on the bottom and pages 22 and 23 are face up on the top.
  4. Fold in the middle so the front cover is on the outside and pages 22 and 23 are in the middle.
  5. Unfold again, turn over and staple on the fold (so the sharp bits of the staple are inside the booklet.) Hey presto! All going well, you have made a proper Christmas song book!
