Lori Craig has organized a Bible Verse Challenge over on Splitcoaststampers. “We’ll each create an on-going altered journal, rolodex card, scrapbook page, ATC or recipe card project… Each month we will choose a verse and get to stamping. We’ll add that piece to our collection.” Here is my first scripture card, the storage box and dividers.

Isn’t this a wonderful idea and challenge! I am just now joining in for the month of April. I plan to make this more than just a year long project.. perhaps a life long project. The scripture card hangs from the picture hooks in plain view all month. As I create the next month’s card, I will simply take the old one off from the hooks and file it under the month in which I created and memorized it. It will be easily available if I choose to refer back. Oh and another easy change each month could be the ribbon around the hangers. Thank you, Lori, for such a meaningful and awesome challenge!!

The finished box measures 5-3/4″ wide X 4-1/2″ tall X 3″ deep. Each scripture card measures 4″ X 5-1/4″. The center of the holes for the eyelets on the scripture card are 5/8″ from the top and 1″ from the side of the card.

The holes for the brads are placed 1/8″ from the top and 1-1/4″ from the side fold on the box.

These are just the regular inexpensive picture hangers that measure 7/8″ in length. The holes for the brads are placed 1/8″ from the top and 1-1/4″ from the side fold.

  2. What a wonderful idea. I’ve been going to join this challenge for quite a while and maybe this will inspire me to get going on it. I love your box design. Must cASE! Thanks.

  3. How clever! I have been trying to figure out for a month how I want to hang mine, and you did it so quickly! LOL. Great idea!

  4. this is beautiful, I love that stamp set.

  5. This is a wonderful way to have the verse visible all month and to store the scripture cards! Just beautiful, Susan!

  7. I just received your email, I had sent you an email twice with my address do you think that it is going to your junk email. Please, please, plaease I love that set and would hate to loose it, since I was so excited to win it. My address, if you could pelase delete this comment after reading it.

  8. This is gorgeous and something to be treasured for years to come!

  9. This is a great idea – and it would be the perfect RS super Saturday gift to make….if you’re really nice to me I won’t suggest it though! Glad you made it home – no cards in Mexico? I was waiting to see if you posted anything from PV with cards – but I guess you were too busy floating in the pool. I’m waiting for the baby – very impatiently I might add – but she’ll be induced on Monday so I’ve only got to get myself through the weekend! I love your mom’s cards – they are beautiful – are you going to do something with them? Frame them? The 3 of them framed together would be beautiful!
    Time to eat…then shop…that’s all I’ve done for the last week! I’m gaining “baby weight” right along with Lyndsey – but at least I have new shoes!

  10. wow, this is gorgeous! I love the picture hangers on the front, fabulous idea for having the scripture verse in front for the month, actaully a great devotional tool. I may just have to case this idea! Thanks so much for showing how you made it.

  11. Oh Susan! This is fabulous looking and I just love those papers and colors! Such a great idea the way you decided to hook them to the front! Happy Stamping Hugs!

    That is so funny that Nan suggested a RS class because that is exactly what I was thinking and I will ask!!!!! 😀 heeeheee Maybe for September?

    It will be great for scripture mastery in seminary, but you would need 2 scriptures per month. I might have to make one for Terry’s classroom! Would you help me do it? Beleive it or not I am all thumbs when it comes to this . :)

  15. This is just beautiful!!! I love the colors you used, so peaceful!

  34. WOW … this is just so fantastic … I can’t wait to make this little box.
    I just recently found the Bible Verse Challenge on SCS … not sure if I can participate this year as other card making schedule doesn’t leave me much time … but I love the way you did this. I have a retreat to go to this weenend … and thought ‘if’ I have time I might be able to make this box for my 3 friends that are sharing the cabin with me. Thank you for excellent directions on how to make it. lol, when I saw it on SCS … I couldn’t wait to get to your web site to see the tutorial :)
    Blessings to you,
    Diana

    Blessings, Marge

  36. I’m so glad my friend shared this with me. Not only have I found a new project, I’ve found a new blog! Will be checking in regularly! Keep ’em coming!

  37. […] Recipe is for the card only. A tutorial for the box with the hooks for hanging each month’s card can be found here. […]

  38. Love the design of this box for hanging and storing your verses – thanks for sharing the instructions!

  39. Super template for retreat destination packing of craft materials and embellishments. Small hanger, brads, and bookplate for owner id provide heavy metal to balance display/treasure storage supplying total attention and eye candy of Bible scripture to be hidden in the heart. Grace and peace be unto you treasuring dot and tittle, all powerful Word.
