"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!"
2 Corinthians 5:17
Making a paper quilt is easy enough for children, yet adults
will enjoy making it too! The women of our church made the one seen here
during our weekly Bible study. Later in the season we displayed
it for our Women's Tea
to represent our theme, "New Life in Christ."
What you need: white butcher paper, various bright colors of
8.5" x 11" paper, templates or patterns of New Life designs,
(i.e. butterflies, flowers, fish, or various other Christian
symbols), glue sticks, scissors, banner paper wider than the
butcher paper, wooden dowels wider than the banner paper, heavy duty
staple gun, cord for hanging.
What you do: Give each person a choice of colored papers and
templates and patterns to cut out Christian or New Life shapes.
Arrange the shapes on the colored paper and glue them on. Allow everyone
to create their own design. (Try cutting New Life shapes using photos
from magazines or newspapers too.) Glue the individual works of art
onto the butcher paper. Glue or staple the butcher paper onto the
banner paper. Wrap the ends of the banner paper around the dowel.
Staple shut. Tie the cord to both ends of the dowel. Hang and display
your beautiful Paper Quilt!
