I want to wish everyone a blessed Christmas close to our Savior and close to loved ones. For those who can't be with loved ones or are ill or grieving, my prayers are with you. At least no one can keep you from our Savior and He is enough to fill us with abundant life and joy inexplicable! Rest in Him, trust Him and seek Him deeper. He is the answer to EVERYTHING! Thank you Father God for sending Jesus to save us!
This is the set I made with my class. My original post along with directions for the base are here.
I can't think of a better way to wish you a Merry Christmas than to send you to the designer's site as he's now offering the entire set with revised directions in book form, already printed! Just cut and assemble! He is a marvelous servant of God and has offered all his gifts for free all these years. This is the first thing I am aware of that he is selling and at only $12.

While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.
And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.
