Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:4-7

Christmas Craft

And here's an easy Christmas craft idea.

Take the front off an old Christmas card
or off one of the daggy ones in the packet that you're never going to send to anyone.

Punch a hole in each corner. 

Fold the card in half horizontally...

...and vertically.

Then make diagonal folds from the horizontal and vertical midpoints.

Put a few festive lollies in the middle (and you could also write a Bible verse or Christmas message in the white diamond because at some stage these decorations will be opened in order to retrieve the lollies)...

...and then bring the four corners together, threading curling ribbon through the holes.

Pull it all together, tie a knot at the top, make a loop and there you have it...
a simple craft Christmas decoration to hang on your Christmas tree.

I made these with my Scripture classes today as an end-of-year, farewell fun activity.  That is, with the classes that weren't bumped for the cross country event.  Hoping to catch up the last class next week before school ends.
