Homemade Gifts-- Scripture Case with Handle

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!
