I am teaching the girls in my Wednesday night class at church (Faith Girlz) about storing up treasures in Heaven rather than here on Earth. I have had this idea for a long time, and the time was finally right. I found this template somewhere on the internet a while back. (If it is yours or you know whose it is, please let me know so I can give proper credit. I tried to find it again, but I never could.)
Printed on kraft cardstock.
I colored the straps using a gold metallic pen.
My finished box.
I cut out one for each of the girls in my class. (I think about 15-20). All of the cuts came out right on the mark except one that got off slightly when I was experimenting. I chose that one for my sample box (without thinking I might post this on my blog) so I could give the girls the better ones (even though I knew most of them would end up in the trash). We assembled the boxes in class, and I encouraged them to take them home and fill them with Heavenly treasures (such as Bible verses to memorize or things they could do that are pleasing to God). I think only three didn't end up in the trash, but if God can use me to make a difference in the life of just one child, it is all worth it.
