Angel Box - Retablo

Beautiful Christmas Angel. Do you believe in angels? Did you know "The angel of the LORD encamps round about them that fear Him, and delivers them". Psalm 34. Fear, not as in afraid or scared, but as in referential, respect and love. We adore this sweet little angel box which is really called a "Retablo" as the designer, The Toy Maker designed. The following gives insight as to just what a Retablo is.
A Retablo or lamina is a Latin American devotional painting, especially a small popular or folk art one using iconography derived from traditional Catholic church art.This is a different meaning from that of the word retablo in Spanish, and is equivalent to reredos in English or retable in French: a painting, sculpture or combination of the two, rising behind the altar of a church. The Latin etymology of this Spanish word means "board behind". Source

This is a fairly easy paper craft to put together. If you love angels and their reference, than this would be a perfect little addition to your collection or decor. To get your free Angel Retablo, please click on the link provided below. There are two pieces to this, so be sure to download BOTH for the entire printable.

We think this is best printed on white textured card stock. The graphics are crisp and the the paper adds to the durability.

The graphics or illustrations are outstanding. The soft color palette still speaks of Christmas without being the traditional red and green.

Here is the breathtaking back of the Retablo. It gives off the impression of stain glass.
The words ring true to my heart, how about you?

Are you ready to add this to your Christmas decorating?! She will sure be a happy and reflective sight when you pass by. We hope you enjoy having her. Be inspired!

 All You have made will praise You, O Lord;
Your saints will extol You.
Psalm 145:10
