Using Scrapbook Cards in Your Small Group


(Stamps used are courtesy of Impression Obsession, Inc.)

Bible studies don’t have to be dry and boring. God’s Word is alive and powerful, and He has given us all kinds of creative methods to take His Word to heart. Scrapbook cards can be one of them.

They’re colorful. They’re pretty. What’s not to like?

When my mom and I teach a small group Bible study, we make scrapbook card kits. Every group member puts together a scrapbook card that has a principle from the lesson on it. Using double sticky tape, the group members tape the layers of the card together, and they’re done. Fast and easy!

Scrapbook Cards in Bible Study

I have scrapbooked for almost ten years. I enjoy it as a stress reliever, as an excuse to be with friends, and as a creative outlet. The papers are pretty, the embellishments are snazzy, and the pictures I cherish are preserved for all time in meaningful ways. Until the tape runs out. Then I have to run to the scrapbook store (oh no!) and restrain myself to buy only tape. And maybe one more set of stickers.

A few years ago, my mom Beebe and I found a way to incorporate scrapbooking into our Bible study classes. It can take as little as five minutes of class time to do it. At the end of the class, we pass out little kits to each lady in the group, and inside are pre-cut papers, ribbon, and bling (sparkly stuff). As a group we put together the card which has a principle from the lesson printed on the top layer of paper.
