1. Lay out your box kit pieces and "audition" tree cut outs, the house charms and reserved stars from your house kit. Select the pieces you wish to use and where to place them.
2. Paint all your pieces with a taupe/grey base coat. Let dry. Dry brush with white paint.
3. Add white paint accents.
4. Glue together and assemble.
5. That's it! Now have fun with what to fill it with! It's really that simple! You can also set your treat box on a serving platter as shown in the photos!

'Twas the night after Christmas
And at the North Pole
Santa was tired
from his global patrol.

The reindeer, exhausted,
Lay down in the house
And the elves snuggled in
Right above on the couch.

Mrs Claus looked around
And thought "My! What a sight!"
With a smile, she set off
to make everything right!

She deftly assembled
A platter of sweets-
And a hot cocoa tray
For some post-Christmas treats!

She presented the feast
With a twinkle in her eye
Santa chuckled and exclaimed,
"What a JOLLY Good Night!"
