Add the Plaid tree to the label on a dimensional, ensuring the tree stump is not lower than the bottom of the Pacific Point label.
Lay the three 8.5″ pieces on your work surface. Crease all the folds in the same direction and crease with a bone folder.

Repeat to the right side of that center seam on the tall rectangle cube and attach the second small cube on the right side of the flattened tall rectangular cube with the adhesive portion at the bottom.
