Easter idea - 8 day walk with Christ

I was forwarded a neat idea for an 8 day walk with Christ - I made my own templates 
(found at www.jackshandsjillsheart.com under the occasion/holiday tab, which includes the box template and the files) and I've seen little paper boxes that hold 6 Easter egg chocolates. So I designed a template on the computer to hold 8 plastic Easter eggs:I sent the images so my plotter could cut them all out, but I had to score them by hand - that was a lot of work ;) But my friend Cari helped me put these together:
BUT make sure your sizes match up before printing them on nice paper. All I did was upload them separately because you can only print out 1 box bottom per paper as well as 1 box lid. I was able to fit 2 box insides on an 8 1/2 x 11 size of paper. Or you could make a stencil/template and just trace them onto paper too - I got 3 box insides for a 12 x 12.


We had to cut up all the scripture references, thoughts and stories and then fold them:
And glue the box together and then the vellum sheet that had instructions:
There are scripture references and thoughts with M&M's in the eggs, the stories we put in envelopes to go with the corresponding day.

I was panicked trying to find small plastic Easter eggs after visiting and not finding them at Target, Walmart, JoAnns, Michaels & World Market (claiming to be Easter Headquarters - haha - they didn't even have regular size plastic eggs! I seriously thought about telling them to take their sign down ;) Hello, I had already cut out my boxes and there had better be some small Easter eggs somewhere!! I finally found them at Fred Meyer and they were even SUPER cute =)

I really like this idea! Do you have files for the things you printed? I was thinking about doing this with my senior primary group next week.

I would agree with the above comment. I too would like to know if you would share the files for the things you printed. It is an excellent idea that I would also like to share with the ladies I visit teach, as well as the young girls I teach in Achievement days.

Thanks, Joleen...

I love this idea. I also cannot find the link to the pdf files, just the link at the top to the original 8 days... I would love directions on how to find the link or a copy of your files if you still have them. I love your site and your creativity.

Thanks hmdavis@uas.alaska.edu

I love your site and appreciate your willingness to share your talents. I purchased the easter egg box template last week and when the files downloaded to my computer, the copy and print options were disabled. I was not able to copy or print the template. Is there something else I can try to make this work? P.S. the customer service link on your site is not working.

Jonathan and Cheri said...

Thanks Jean! The customer service link is working - I did get your email there =)

I love this idea. I'm having no luck finding any pdf for it or any other links. Any suggestions? Thanks

Jonathan and Cheri said...

The PDF file is connected to the link in the post - I'm sorry it isn't working for you =( If you check back, try again?

I just found your blog, via google. We are actually doing the Christ Walk for our Relief Society Birthday Dinner/Easter Activity. I am wanting to purchase your box template as well as the other items included in the $1 price, but when I click the link, there is nothing there and my total for paypal is $0.00 Is it possible to order? Please email me any information you can, or how to pay for it via paypal! Thank You!

Hello, I would love to purchase your box template, but all I found on your website was the files for the printouts. Can you direct me to where the templates are? Thanks!

Mattie said...

I also wanted to know if you were still offering the files. I'm trying to figure out what to do for my Easter lesson. Thanks! mmheiney@gmail.com

I just ordered the files. I got the scripture reference/story ones and the box template. The files are still there and working.

Thanks for sharing! I'm excited to do this with the YW in my branch.
