Step 1 : Arrange the cups in the shape of a Christmas tree on your piece of cardboard. Draw a rough outline of the edges and cut with an exacto knife.

Step 2 : Paint the cardboard with Americana Multi-Surface Turf Green. Allow to dry.
Step 3 : Now add glue to the bottom of each cup and place them onto the cardboard.
Step 4 : Stencil snowflakes onto white cardstock. 

Step 5 : Take your hole punch and cut out 12 circles from the cardstock you stenciled and punch 13 out of another Christmas pattern. We went with a plaid pattern.
Step 6 : Glue your numbers onto the circles and fill your cups with candy of your choice. 

Step 7 : Glue the circles onto the top of each cup. Enjoy!
