I am going to an ornament exchange next week and the theme is nativity or church.  After hunting around and not finding what I wanted, I went on PINTEREST and searched for a nativity ornament.  This blog had a wonderful silhouette ornament in a glass ball that I loved.  Not being a paper person, I was clueless on how to go about cutting out the silhouette, and that's when I called my friend Jane.  This is the finished ornament....
I have a "sewing emporium" and Jane has a "paper emporium" with a flat screen TV!!!!!
Being an expert paper artist she had a short cut on how to make the ornament faster.  Instead of using paper and gluing it to clear acetate, she cut the image out of vinyl that had a sticky backing and she transferred the silhouette to the acetate.  We only made two ornaments because we were giggling and talking so much, that was the best part about the day.  Jane is now on her second computerized cutting machine.  (I told you I'm not a paper person....I don't even know the name of the machines) She has all sorts of paper gadgets and files her paper like I file my fabric.  Jane also showed me other things she's made, subway signs, scripture verses for the wall, her grand kids names with cars and flower decorations.  It was amazing.....AND FUN!!!!  Thanks Jane.


  1. How did she make the scene or where did she find it? I would like to make One as well.
