Cut and score.
Mountain fold horizontal and vertical creases. Valley fold diagonal creases.
Curl box around and glue together at the vertical join. Do not glue the bottom yet.
Crease all holly leaves firmly in half.
Close the box by collapsing each section, working around in a circle. If you are having trouble, check that your diagonal creases are still valley folded and your vertical creases are still mountain folded. I find that the folds on the last section tends to want to reverse as I work my way around collapsing the top.
Unfold each holly leaf.
Glue box bottom to bottom tabs.
