Believe Boxes and Manger

Hello friends!  Tonight I am sharing a project with you that is very meaningful, Believe blocks with a manger and Baby Jesus.  The files I used are from SVG Attic's JGW Believe set. (Those files are on sale now!)
These blocks are very large when finished and would look amazing on a mantle for the holiday season!  I used kraft cardstock for the bases on all of them from Oriental Trading.  It used 9 sheets just for the blocks!  I used white cardstock for the letters.  The patterned papers are from Ornamental Christmas and Old World Winter by The Paper Studio.  This picture below shows what it looks like without the manger in front.
For the star, I used patterned paper for the star and trimmed it with gold glitter paper from DCWV's Glitzy Glitter stack.  I added a bow of Totally Chocolate Trendy Twine.
Next is a close up of Baby Jesus in the manger. I cut all of the pieces out of solid cardstock and then stamped a woodgrain stamp from Unity on the outer brown cardstock. Jesus is wrapped in a piece of fabric which is tied with more Totally Chocolate Trendy Twine.
Here is what the manger looks like without Baby Jesus it in.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
