Nativity Blocks

These are the Nativity Blocks that we made at a church activity. I was asked to cut out the vinyl for them with my Cricut. One of the ladies already had a block that she was given a few years ago and she just wanted to be able to "re-create" hers. I was able to photograph the sides of her block and import the pics into Make The Cut to cut out with my Cricut.


I changed a few of the images from what her original block had. Actually the only images we kept the same were the Star and Shepherd scene. I added the city of Jerusalem and the 3 Wisemen. Her block featured an Angel instead of the city, and some kind of animal in place of the Wisemen.... i think it was an ox... or maybe a really big, weird looking sheep... i don't know. Anyways, I didn't think that was necessary so I switched it. The angel actually was necessary since he's a huge part of the story... so on my block I got to keep the camels, which I love, but the vinyl for all the other blocks had an angel instead of camels.


Anyways, they turned out super cute!

And in case anyone has ever wondered.......... you actually can run your Cricut for 2 days straight only stopping to change out the mat and not have it overheat! In fact it wasn't even warm!

Yay! I bet that's great news to all you obsessive crafters like me who don't like to sleep...... and when I must sleep, I set my alarm to wake me up so I can change out the mat and get it back to cutting.

Okay...... truth be told...... I am a serious procrastinator.  I had to cut out vinyl for two days straight because I didn't realize that Make The Cut would cut out so much slower and I seriously had.....52 x 6.... 312 + ..... 144 x 6 .... 864.....= 1176 pieces to cut out. Yeah 1176. Ha Ha! You'd think I'd learn right?  :-)

**Edited to add**

If you would like the cut file for these (for personal use only) please leave a comment with your email and I will send it to you. (It does not contain the image of the camels but has an angel instead.) It will be an svg file so you can use it in SCAL and MTC.  Thanks for all your interest!
