This Believer's Box is one variation of my Kuriosity Kits and would make the perfect gift for any Christian. Whether for a confirmation, baptism, care package, someone leaving on a mission trip, a sponsor, a pastor, a Sunday School teacher, youth group leader, or even yourself, it is a pocket-size, portable reminder of faith and hope.
To make the box, I selected 15 of my favorite inspirational Bible verses from both the Old Testament and New Testament. I typed them up in an attractive and easy-to-read key that fits neatly inside the box. Here are just two examples of verses you'll find on the key:
Church. "For where two or three gather together in my name, there I am with them." Matthew 18:20
Hope. "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11
Key. "Take hold of my instructions; don't let them go. Guard them, for they are the key to life." Proverbs 4:13.
Next, I found 15 items to represent each of those verses in a tangible, symbolic way. They can be worn as charms (you may select up to two colors of waxed cotton cords, as shown in the photo) or simply kept in the box as tokens of remembrance, inspiration, and encouragement. Some of these items are interactive--the treasure chest really opens,
the door opens and closes and could even work as a locket. All items are durable and can be held and studied by all ages (but take precautions with very young children, due to the small size).
Finally, I upcycle an Altoid tin with fabric, paper, and my own designs, place the 15 tokens and the key inside, and send it off to you! The Believer's Box measures 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 x 1. I have many fabrics for the top of the box, from colorful and busy to muted and understated. I can put a person's name, or keep it simple with a flower, cross, etc. Just let me know what you'd like! (See pictures in the listing for item samples).
If you order three or more of this kit or any combination of three of my Kuriosity Kits, you will be refunded all shipping charges. So think about mixing and matching! I have kits for new mothers, grandparents, boyfriends, girlfriends, kids, travel fun, crafts, etc. Happy shopping, and thanks for visiting my shop!
