Fold-out Nativities
Jennifer's Crèche
"The stylized, old-fashioned look of paper nativities," says Jennifer Hooton, "makes me feel like a child again."

The Adoration of the Shepherds and the Magi — Jennifer's Crèche.

Cut along white dotted lines; fold on blue and red lines. (Download file does not include these guide lines.)
"Alexis, my dear friend," writes Jennifer Hooton from Salt Lake City, "I hope this finds you well and happy. I have acquired some more antique crèches, though I don't really know how old they are, but I gingerly disassembled and scanned them in the hope that you could put one or two on Crè"

Hello Jennifer! Thanks for sharing your nativities with me and andCrèche Guild friends (Créchemania's Yahoo Groups mailing List).

Jennifer's Crèche (image at left) is made up of three pieces: the Stable, the Holy Family, and the Shepherds.

Printing: Print the free PDF Download on paper that will give your crèche the necessary thickness for assembly. I like Epson Matte Double-side Presentation paper. But you might wish to wish a glossy photo paper, in which case you might have to mount it on heavier stock for assembly.

Cutting: Cut out all the outside white areas oftheStable, theHoly Family, and theShepherds pieces.

See the diagram at left: white denotes areas you need to cut with an X-acto knife, following the white dots as a guide.Cut along thebottom of the roof and along its corners; along the beam at left, and the vase at right; and around the two Shepherds.

This top view of Jennifer's Crèche shows its construction.
Then, cut out the four holes for theHoly FamilyandMagipieces.

Scoring: Score along blue and red lines. Now fold, towards you on blue, and away from you on red lines.

Insert Holy Family piece in back Stable slots, and the Shepherds in the front slots.
