Paper Nativity





I loved this scan of a vintage paper nativity... I copied and cut a few of the figures to fit under a glass dome I hadn't used in decorating. Left little tabs on bottom to fold and glue. I glued to a small cardboard which I glued a aged book Page to and added some glitter to bottom. A little more than a 15 minute project. I think this nativity could adjust to look cute with some putz houses....It rather reminds me of a vintage pop-up card.....

You COULD easily make it into a pop card, that would be neat.

Thank you so much for posting this paper Nativity set!

I am on a tight budget this year and needed a nativity scene. I downloaded the figures you posted and created a manger using items from around my house, adding sticks and branches from outdoors to give it character.

It turned out so beautifully and the characters reminded my Dad of his grade school days in Catholic School. I hope you'll enjoy my photos -- http://tinyurl.com/7gwuvx4.

Thanks you so much for helping us continue our Christmas Eve tradition of setting-up the manger.

Warmest regards,
