A Christ-Centered Home

Downloaded from: http://inkablinka.com/2013/04/a-christ-centered-home.html

The Visiting Teaching Message for May can be selected from a talk from our most recent General Conference. I dove into Elder Scott’s talk, For Peace at Home, and came out with this little 3-D house (shared with permission by artist Cally Johnson. More cute houses found here) that has lots of doors and windows that open and contain ways to have a more Christ-centered home. A picture of the Savior, along with a yummy truffle, fit snugly inside.

You can start out by printing the file download at the bottom of this post. Print page 1, the house image, on cardstock. Print the text on page 2 on regular copy paper.

Using an exacto knife, carefully cut along 3 sides of each door and window, and along all dotted lines. Gently push the openings open, to make sure all the sides and corners are completely cut. Next, score all fold lines and make sure the text lines up correctly behind your newly cut openings.

I then held up the house to a window so I could see the edges of the house, and applied glue all around – keeping clear of the openings, because we don’t want to glue our door or windows on top of the text. Press the house onto the text page, and cut out.

Next you fold, tape or glue – whatever works to get the house all put together. Leave the roof open to insert your picture and candy.

Punch holes in both sides of the chimney, then tie together with a ribbon. I hope you enjoy sharing this message of peace with this cute Christ-centered home! Download below:
