Scripture Block Craft

We did this craft for VBS.  The design on the front of the block is smeared because I don’t have permission to share it.  The Scripture card is from Mercy Ink.  Scroll down a bit and you’ll find the free download.  You can find similar cards if you do a Google search.  Print them on cardstock so they are strong enough to stay up.
