2-4-6-8-who do we appreciate?

At this time of year none other than Santa Claus is the focus on many minds. While Jesus is the Reason for the Season, it is still Santa Claus who continues to capture our imaginations and our hearts this time of the year.
There are great tutorials out there, but check out the one here if you need a good visual.

These boxes are so simple. Here are the directions: 1 - 5 1/2” x 8 1/2” piece card stock (you will get 2 boxes from one piece of paper.)
Paper trimmer with scoring blade or ruler with bone folder
Red line tape or a good tacky glue.
From short side of card stock, score lines at 2”, 4”, 6”, and 8”, leaving 1/2” for
flap. Score from one long side of card stock at 2”.
Cut on lines from bottom edge to scored edge. Remove small corner piece.
Place red line tape on side flap and on one of the flaps that will be the bottom
most flap when it is folded.
Fold on bottom score line and on all side fold lines. Adhere side flap behind opposite side, fold all bottom flaps in with flap with tape last. Adhere.
