Last week husband and I had a rare date night where we could drop the kids off at church and go Christmas shopping without them. 2 whole hours just us (and the baby-- we're not quite ready to let her go yet) to be without the boys. We debated on just having a date or going out to see a movie. But finally decided maybe we really ought to go out and get some Christmas shopping done.
We thought together and planned a fun list of items we wanted to get the boys. Then my husband decided it would be a Great idea to get the boys their own scriptures with their names monogrammed on the front.
Among the toys we purchased we picked up two brand-new, monogrammed scriptures for each boy.
As we were walking out the store my husband suggested, "And why don't you make them their own scripture cases, too. They'd love that."
I reminded him of the other 15 projects I wanted to get done before Christmas, but this one quickly jumped to the very top of my list. I made them each in about 2 hours.
I will tell you, though I did not start this project completely from scratch. I checked the good ol' internet for some inspiration and decided I liked this tutorial by I Am Momma - Hear Me Roar best.
But I altered it, of course, because I wanted to add a handle.
All set for Christmas. I can't wait to see what the boys think of them!
