BBTB2: Cricut - Intricate Nativity Candle - Away in a Manger

Happy Holidays to All my Followers!

The year has just zipped by for me.   From enjoying my 2 grandchildren, to taking a few long vacations, getting some improvements done on the house, and celebrating 35 years of marriage, it's been a great year.  I've enjoyed sharing my papercrafting and Cricut projects during the year - it keeps my creative juices flowing to know I have a deadline to submit a card/project almost each week.

This week our Bitten By the Bug2 challenge is to use a nativity scene or a menorah.  I found this SVG on a FB group I follow.  I do not know the artist, but I would love to say thank you to him/her.  I tried a new technique I saw a few weeks ago and it was so easy.   I printed the scene on tissue paper (taped tissue paper to a plain sheet of copy paper and then put in printer) and cut it out.  The tissue paper goes against the candle and then top it with waxed paper.  Holding it all together tightly, I ran the heat gun quickly over the project.  The wax melts a bit into the tissue and it appears to melt into the candle itself.

Join our end of the year challenge at BBTB2 and link up your 'Nativity' / 'menorah' card or project created with your Cricut!  Susan from Busy with the Cricky is hosting this great challenge, come see her and the other designers creations.  Merry Christmas!!
