Hi everyone! In this week’s tutorial, we are creating a paper nativity shadowbox scene! The results of this project are beautiful!

Click the image below to watch the video tutorial:


  • Card stock – the paper you use needs to have some thickness to it. I suggest white card stock for the inside and glitter or colored card stock for the stable.
  • X-acto knife (if you’re cutting by hand)
  • Fairy lights or other small lights
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • 1/4 inch thick foam core board or extra thick craft foam/fun foam to put between layers

Click here to view & print the hand-cut patterns:





Free SVG files* (right click on them, and click Save Image As. The fold lines are intended to be set to score with your machine. This file is optimized for Cricut machines):

Let me know if you have questions, and merry Christmas!
