Nativity Silhouette Ornament Craft Kit
Simple & Sweet
This is a simple craft that doesn't take a lot of creativity, just a little dexterity when punching out the image to affix to the background. I also didn't care for the hanging loops included in the kit, so cut some satin craft ribbons to use instead (I used various colors that were in the "stained-glass" background).
I tend not to trust stick-on elements, since they tend to become detached over a period of time, so once I took off the backing, I used some simple white craft glue before attaching the cut-out image to the backing. A little clean-up with some toothpicks took care of any spillage.
You can also add some very fine gold glitter to the star before putting the stone in its center.
All in all, an easy craft, but not necessarily for very young crafters.

Cute, but difficult for younger kids
These look nice, but aligning the sticky back is difficult because there is very little room for error. If you are hoping to do these with younger children, you will either end up doing them yourself, or end up with the backing sticking out in the wrong places. It would then be possible to trim off the extra where it is showing, just be aware these may require that extra step.

Not for young children.
This craft is one sided and is a nice thickness. The silhouette has to be punched out and is not easy for young children to do.

Not a good choice
It is almost impossible to remove the backing from this sticker without damaging the image. Way too tough for even 7 yr old hands. No creativity involved on the part of the children. I thought they would at least put the colors on the background, but everything was done for them.
