Nativity Story


But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people.” ~ Luke 2:10

I posted last week that I had a special Christmas project to share. This is one of three projects that I have featured in the newest Paper Crafts special publication, Holiday Crafts & More. You can pick up your copy at Barnes & Noble, Michaels or probably you local scrapbook store that carries periodicals. It is filled with wonderful holiday sentiments and gift ideas.


Last year around Thanksgiving, I picked up this tiny little nativity scene at Hobby Lobby. It was the best $2.99 I spent last year. I say ‘little nativity’ because all of the pieces fit in this band aid tin from Provo Craft. I altered my tin and typed up a few verses to explain the Christmas story. I love how it all tucks away so nice and neat. This would be a wonderful gift for a Sunday School teacher, and I see many, many uses in children’s ministry areas. I know that our set will see a lot of action this Christmas season, and it’s one of those things I’ll treasure always.

See you tomorrow with a color challenge creation! Thanks for stopping by!
