Whether you are wanting to make the nativity ornaments or the Minecraft, the inserts all work the same. And they are sooooo easy!
Supplies you will want to already have to make them are:
1. Your Ornament Bulbs (I use both glass and plastic. Bulbs are 2 5/8 in that I use-typical size ones you buy)
2. Your ornament insert
3. Fake snow (Optional: I didn't use this with the minecraft creeper ornament. Your choice.)
4. Ribbon for a bow and to hang the ornament with
5. Hot glue
6. Optional: tweezers...if you need them to help arrange the insert once it is already inside the bulb.
The inserts come with the vinyl already applied to the acetate. The acetate is in the shape of an ornament. (see in the pic below:)

So, I have been blogging for forever it feels, but kinda in my own world, so these link parties are new to me, but so fun! I love all the fun creations I see from others that inspire me too. So, I am trying to do more.
Check out the following link parties I am participating in this week:
WOW! My first feature! And on my Nativity Advent 12 Days of Christmas Ornaments! One of my favs lately. :) Thanks Ginger! You amaze me with your blog, your creativity, and all the crafting and blogging you find time to do.
If you haven't been there, check it out at GingerSnapCrafts.
I LOVE repurposing! I also wonder why I keep so many things...like empty frames where the glass has long since been broken and thrown away. It seems that usually, I keep stuff for forever, then finally throw it out, and the next week I think...I wish I still had that! lol Well, today I was glad I kept those frames!
Look around your house for what you can use to repurpose. Let us know what you do!

All you need to make this gorgeous plate is:
1. A run to the dollar store to pick up a plate
2. This vinyl
3. 2 minutes to apply the vinyl
Yep, that's it!
Great for display in your home, for Thanksgiving dinner and to use as a plate to give away goodies to friends and family!
What's not to love? :)

Have you checked out Ginger Snap Crafts? I love her site! Love all her fun ideas and crafts she makes. Her WOW me Wednesdays are the best too, bc you get to check out all kinds of neat creations from soooo many friends!
Here are a few of her turtorials/projects I like:
And if you are wanting to help out with people affected from Sandy, she has a great collection going on.
So...I have been meaning to have a give-away ever since I opened my etsy store. So here we are! Yeah!
So, here's the deal:
I will mail one acetate/vinyl insert of the Holy family in a stable nativity scene (like shown in one of the pictures below) for you to use to make an ornament. I will do this for the first 20, yes 20!!! people that enter.
So, the rules...
You have to post a picture AND a link of the Nativity Advent/12 Day Set of Ornaments shown here in my etsy shop:
or shown on the previous post on this blog.
You need to post it to at least 2 of the following:
Pin it to Pinterest
Your FB page
Then come back to this blog and comment to me (with links if pinned or to your blog) what you did and let me know your favorite item in my etsy store as well.
Okay! Let's play!
I will send the inserts out within the next 1-2 weeks. I will need your address as well if you are one of the first 20 to enter. If you want to msg it to me privately on my Fb page, feel free to do so,
Thanks for playing!
I had wanted something that was fun to open with my kids (like an advent calendar) that was also centered around Christ and love that we can open these ornaments up and hang on a tree each night the 12 days before Christmas.
Our family also likes to secretly take gifts to other people for the 12 days before Christmas and this is such an affordable idea. I love it!
Joseph leading Mary on a donkey
Words "O Holy Night"
Three separate wisemen
One shepherd with a sheep
One Holy Family in a stable
(Just an FYI too, vinyl applied to raw unfinished wood like shown does not stick well and is not easy to do. I just wanted the look and plan on it not sticking long. You will want a smooth surface. One other option would be to use the vinyl outline of the words as a stencil and paint the letters yourself. I've done that before and it works great!)
