Jesse Tree: Ten Commandment Ornament

Here's the Ten Commandments ornament for our Jesse Tree.

I used stone-like textured paper to wrap cardboard "tablets" printed with a simplified version of the ten commandments. I really wanted the ten commandments written out on the tablets, rather than scribbled illegible text. This way we can read through them together. I looked to two of Boo's children's bibles for a kid-friendly translation of the text. Though I was tempted to put the original text from Scripture - that would be great too.

I hot-glued them together in the bottom corner, backed them with gray paper and glued a support strip of more gray paper to the middle back.
I punched holes in the top and hung the ornament with brown ribbon.

Hey there, not sure exactly how I stumbled upon your blog but I know it must have been a Baylor buddy we both share. And I know you look really familiar too...wish I'd know you there ;). Anyway, just wanted to say thank you so much for all the inspiration you've given me. I too love to craft and create and teach my kiddos at home and I LOVE all your fun ideas. I had been working on a Jesse Tree as well and have used some of your ideas for the symbols. Thanks! I especially love y'alls preschool wish I could find some buddies around here that would be intested in doing that!! Anyway, just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your blog and your heart ;). Thank you!

Oh, and we're using your Butternut Squash recipe tonight...can't wait.
