My mother-in-law is the president of the German club and asked us to make her a "Donation Box" for their annual Christmas party.
We bought 3 boxes from Michael's and decorated them, cut holes through each box, cut a slit in the top, popped a start on the top and called it a day! We are happy with the results and it was a hit at the club too!
The "shingles" were a lot of fun to make and easy too!
The boxes are glued together so you only have access to the bottom box. This kept the tree from falling down.
