3. Add your trunk of the Christmas tree by cutting out a rectangle shape from your brown paper. Glue to the top of your card so that when it opens up the bottom has more space for writing.

4. Draw on your Christmas tree light strings with black sharpie by making two swirls. Be sure to space these out enough so that you can fit your fingerprint christmas lights on them.
