Special Memory Ornaments

     So I was thinking... what did people do before Pinterest. It is such a great way to find crafts to make. This fall I was blessed with a small group Bible study. Three other girls and myself study God's word in the book of Daniel. We had a blast working through each chapter and challenged ourselves to memorize one of the prayers that Daniel prayed to the Lord. We finished the last chapter right before Christmas and so with the help of Pinterest I created these Memory Verse Ornaments.

1. Measure off the lines on scrapbook paper. My lines were about 4 cm in height. You can decide who big or small you would like them, just make sure they will fit in the whole of the ornament. 
 2. The girls in my bible study each had a different version of the Bible, so I used the BibleGateway to make sure that the verse was in their version.(NIV, NAS, and ESV)
 3. I wrote out the verse on the lines. Daniel 2:20-23

Daniel said, “Let the name of God be blessed forever and ever, For wisdom and power belong to Him. 21 “It is He who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings; He gives wisdom to wise men And knowledge to men of understanding. 

22 “It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, And the light dwells with Him. 23 “To You, O God of my fathers, I give thanks and praise, For You have given me wisdom and power; Even now You have made known to me what we requested of You, For You have made known to us the king’s matter.”

 4. I cut the strips apart and added them to the ornament. You can roll them around a pencil to place them in the ornament but I ended up just sliding them in and letting them curl around themselves.
Happy Crafting!
