Use an Elmer's® X-ACTO® Knife (with new blade) and acrylic ruler on Elmer's® Cutting Mat to cut trees. (Hint: Score lightly first and then press more firmly to cut deeper, with several passes of the knife. Replace blades often.) Also, measure, draw and cut 1 1/4" x 1 3/4" vertical rectangle for photo in center of smaller tree. Trim photo as needed and attach to back of opening using tape.
Cover table with newspapers. Spread layer of Elmer's® Craft Bond™ Glue Stick over entire front surface of small tree and quickly apply a thick layer of glitter. Shake off excess glitter. Let dry.
Make loop in silver cord and use Elmer's® Tacky Glue to attach ends of loop to top back of small tree. Apply Glue Stick to rest of back side of small tree and position on top of front side of large tree, sandwiching loop ends between trees. Let dry before hanging.
