2014 Primary Theme/Scripture Cards

For our Christmas gifts for the kids, I wanted to do something that incorporated next year's theme, so we are giving the kids their own flip book of the monthly theme and scripture. These correspond with my monthly posters.

To make them, you print and cut out the cards. Then after organizing them by month, you punch a hole through all of them, and bind them using something. (We used loose-leaf rings you can find at any office supply store, but you could use ribbon or twine or anything that tickles your fancy.)

We have done this before, and have had parents say that their kids look at them all through sacrament meeting. This way many of the older kids become familiar with the themes even before we introduce them in primary!

  1. Where did you find the monthly scriptures? I don't see them listed anywhere in the outline.

    1. They are right under the theme for each month on the monthly pages where the Sharing time Outlines are.

  2. I ment they aren't on lds.org in the sharing time outline

    1. I found them on the Sharing Time Outline that the Presidencies receive. Here's an example of what I mean (I've posted a picture of where it is on the outline). Hope this helps!

  3. Did you print these as 8x10's? The files I am seeing have lines through them, even the pictures. Maybe I didn't download it correctly? This is a great idea! Thanks for sharing!

    1. I checked my files and there aren't any lines through them. Maybe download them again? If that doesn't work, I can send you the files directly.

    2. The PDF files have lines, but the PNG and JPG files do not.

  4. I wonder if these could be converted so that each card could be printed as a 4x6 photo for either group or personal use? If you could direct me on how to do so, that would be fabulous. If you are able to do it and offer another link for them, that would be even better. :)
    Thanks!

  5. These are beautiful and such a help to the Primary children. I'm grateful for your abilities--what I would have come up with would not have looked so nice.

  6. Our Primary Presidency love these! However, our Primary is large and it would cost $200 for us to print these for each child. Did you print these yourself or order them? Is there a way we could use blue card stock to print these out on ourselves so we don't use so much ink? THANKS!!!

    1. I was wondering the same thing. I love this idea but we have 83 kids.

      Delete
    2. I'm not sure printing them on blue cardstock would work because of the pictures, but If you need me to alter the originals in some way to make it easier for you to print them, I can probably do that!

  7. What type of paper did you use to print your cards?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I like to do them on photo paper because it makes them glossy, but cardstock would probably work if you don't mind the matte finish.

  8. I would like to print these through either Walmart photo or Shutterfly but the files are png. Do you have them in jpeg

    1. Sorry, I thought I had posted that link correctly! It is there now, so you can download them.

  9. I love these but need to convert them into French... do you have an editable version??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I have a special program that I edit them, then convert them to jpg, so I'm not sure it would work to give that to you. However, if you would like to send me the translations, I would be happy to put them on the cards.

      Delete
    2. Thank you so much!! Sorry it has taken me so long to translate these. Here are the French Translations. The Date is at the top, then the Theme and the scripture is under the theme. Please let me know if there is anything you don't understand...

  10. These are beautiful. I love your work! Do you have an idea of the cost on these to print them on photo paper as you have displayed?

    1. I don't know about if you print them yourself, but when I printed mine at Staples, they were about 30 cents a page (making them $1.00 per set) They may be different where you live, depending on color copy prices.

  11. We LOVE your cards & were wanting to print them, but for cost purposes we need to print them in black & white. Is there a way to make the background white? Thanks a ton!!!

  12. Amber - these cards are amazing! Is there anyway I could move the months around so that I could print front and back i.e. January one side and then February on the back? I'm planning on printing them off on card stock. Thanks you!

  31. I love these and want to make them for my own children so that they can memorize the monthly theme scripture each month. I downloaded the 4x6 cards and want to print them at Office Max. Each card is in a different file, but it sounds like you were able to print 4 per page if you just paid $1 per set. I know it is probably a silly question, but how do you do that? Do I just send all the files to Office Max and they put them on one page? My email is mackrory@gmail.com. Thank you for sharing your talents!
