These Matchbox Scripture Crafts are a great project to boost scripture learning... use them at home, children's church, or with a Sunday school group. They are super easy to assemble, all you need is a color printer (or get them printed at your local printer), a ruler, pair of scissors, and glue (I used a glue gun... but children will need help with this step)

I suggest printing it out on card stock, so it will more durable
Cut all the pieces out and get them ready to assemble
Use a ruler to fold along all the fold lines, and then I bend the pieces back to make the box.
Cut only where there are little dotted lines, this will make your small flaps for gluing.
Fold the flaps in and glue them to the inside walls, make sure you line everything up straight so the box will fit together well when completed.
Then move to the outside cover box, fold along all the fold lines and then fold them back to make the box.
Once you have the edges bent to make the box you are ready to glue...
Place your glue down the edge with no printed design, and tuck it inside the other flap to make the cover box.

Now you are ready to add your small detail pieces to the inside. Fold in the tabs and glue your girl towards the bottom of the inside of the box, and the words towards the top. This should come together to make your scene.

Slide the cover over the box, and enjoy a fun way to learn scripture!

There are several other versions, with other scripture, in the shop. Go and check all of them out!
