Forty Days of Crafts: Shadow Box Garden Tomb
“[Jesus] asked her, ‘Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?’ Thinking he was the gardener, she said, ‘Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.'”
— John 20:15 (NIV)
- Cardboard box
- Print out templates for Jesus and the women
- Construction paper
- Markers or crayons
Step 1: Print out and color the templates of Jesus and the women. Cut figures out of paper but make sure to leave the two women attached. (This will make the figures stand better.)
Step 2: Cut out green construction paper for the bottom edge of the box and glue it into place. Cut out blue construction paper to line the remainder of the box and affix it.
Step 3: Cut out the shapes of bushes and other plants with construction paper. (Hint: make sure to leaves tabs on the edges of bushes and plants, as this will make it easier to attach them to the inside of the box.)
Step 4: Glue plants in, beginning at the back of box and work forward. Add some flowers onto the bushes with crayons or markers. Add people at different depths, remembering to fold the tabs under and use them to attach the figures to the box.
