Punch a die-cut tree shape from

white card stock and cut out
using a crafts knife. Using a paper
punch, make a hole in the top
point of each box side. Fold the
tabs and assemble the box using

Measure and cut paper into a
9-inch square. Fold the square in

thirds vertically. Cut out snowflake
openings along the folded sides
and trim the bottom edge as
desired. Unfold the snowflake and
punch a hole in one paper point
for hanging. Note: If you do not
want the folds to show, use the
folded and cut snowflake for a
template, trace it onto paper, and
cut out using a crafts knife.
