I’m offering this design for free - just in time for the beginning of Advent.
See my story about making it here, including more photos:
The ornaments are designs taken from 2 websites which claim all to be in the public domain.
http://www.clker.com and https://svgsilh.com. Only design I’ve taken out is the lantern, which I bought from https://www.silhouettedesignstore.com. I’ve left the cutline and base for it in.
Medium walnut ply – all the pieces are on the sheet - the moose doesn’t quite fit so should move that to another piece and you probably have to rotate the board a bit to fit all in. The kerf for the box and holes are for walnut so I wouldn’t pick another wood. Slide the church doors closed in the slot and put the nativity behind it. On the 24th, slide the church out, take off the doors and put church back to reveal the nativity.
Medium basswood ply - I did the squirrel in cherry ply - but you can pick another wood. The ornaments are set up in such a way that you can print front and back. First set the ornaments to engrave (including 3 errand ornaments), hat to score, rectangle to cut. Set the rest to ignore. When done, without moving the sheet, flip over the rectangle to the back, and set everything you did to ignore, circles to score, numbers to engrave, and the last cut step that will cut all the ornaments. If all is well the circles and numbers should be set perfectly on the back of each ornament.
Thick basswood ply - I tested the posts for the ornaments with the holes in the tree so they would be a good fit, not too loose so they’d fall out when you walk by.
