Mini Scriptures and Treasure Chest

Tomorrow’s lesson for sunday is titled “Jesus Christ’s Teachings are a Treasure” or something to that effect. It’s all about treasuring the scriptures and a mini review lesson of stories from the past 5 months.
I decided to go literal.

In keeping with the theme I found a treasure chest paper craft from a Friend lesson.

I could print out jewels with scriptures on them, but why not put mini books of scriptures inside?
mini bible covers

mini book of mormon covers
I could put blank pages inside, and have them write or draw a scripture, or I could peruse the pictures catalog and put in mini pictures. The gray borders are the cut out lines, the middle line is a fold line. Each strip is folded and glued to make a double sided page, then layer the 2 pages into the book of scripture and staple.

Assembled books, with staple in the middle.

Compared to my hand. Sorry for the nasty yellow pictures. It’s late, all my lights are not natural, and we’ll just pretend they’re trendy and taken with instagram!



Finished in treasure box. This was the small one- I sized it up the box pic  a few inches in publisher so it filled up the page. I suggest you do the same.

Hooray for the scriptures!
