UH-HUH!  You heard right, I made a creche display from a pizza box.  The box is from a pizza I bought at the grocery store-ha! 
   It already had the arched cutout.  I immediately thought of the manger scene and covered it with Christmas wrapping paper. 
   All the little creche figures are ones I purchased at the dollar store, $1.00 for the set a few years ago. 
>I put colored paper inside the bottom of the box and then raffia for anchoring the figures. 

>I poked a hole in the back and hung the angel with thread under her wings and back through the hole. 

>The candles are from the dollar store also and work on 2 AA batteries. 

>The cow and donkey under the creche were odd pieces I found over the years.

   This project took about 15 minutes - tops!  It makes a cute little display on the bookcase near the front door.  Can you think of any other way you could use the Pizza box??  Maybe a fireside Santa scene?  Or your children could draw figures and cut them out.  Then paste to the back of the box.....

If you make one of these, please send me a picture to feature, I would love that! 

My heart to yours...
