Scripture Cards Display Book


Last year I took part in the Glory Art Scripture Challenge where every fortnight there was a different theme with scriptures we could study.  I made scripture cards for my glory art and if you've visited before you will know how much fun I find them to make.  WARNING...... if you are minded to try them they are very addictive!  I had a whole pile of them by the end of the year which I knew I wanted to make into a devotional book.  In the end I made them into a very simple display book so I can have different scriptures (and art) to enjoy each day.


I mounted them on black card.  Initially I wanted to do them singly but there were too many :)


I used book rings to bind them together using my trusty Crop-a-dile to punch the holes several pages at a time:


Each page is double sided so that when I get to the end I simply turn the display around and start again to go through the other side:


For each challenge I made four ..... but sometimes five or six cos I couldn't stop making them :)


I kept to the same colours and supplies for each challenge so they would be a set:


I would often start with a masterboard and then cut up before finishing each one individually which gave a nice cohesive look to each set:


Sometimes I'd use texture paste which gave a lovely dimension to them but made sticking the strips of verse tricky!


The strips are often wonky .... but it is a home made book after all!  I never did learn to cut straight and they were too narrow to cut with my guillotine:


Of course I am doing the challenge again this year and shall have a whole pile more to make into something.  Why not come and join in the fun?
