Start by tucking all the lights into the glass block through the hole at the bottom. Make sure you leave the cord out!

Cut a notch in the bottom plastic pieceĀ  to let the cord stick out easily, and put the bottom plastic piece back in place.

Trace your block onto scrapbook paper, and cut out the square. Then fold in half and cut triangles and a rectangle to make a Christmas Tree shape.
