Birth of the Messiah foretold

Birth of Christ foretold

E-mail me if you need help with directions.  The verse is Micah 5:2 ; ‘But you, O Bethlehem, who are little among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting”, and is written with a silver gel pen.  The building will need to pre-cut by you with an x-acto blade. (dangerous for kids)  Cut on the highlighted lines, and fold on the dashes.  You can either pre-fold…or do it together  in class.   Also needed will be 5 palm fronds and the windows , which are 2  different sizes.

To make the palm trees you will have to know how to make a “Jacob’s ladder”… go to you-tube for a good instructional video “how to make a jacob’s ladder” uploaded by rostichery.This pattern uses one half page of dark blue or black card stock.  The palm trees can be colored with pens if you do not have brown or green card stock.  The folds will stay crisp with card stock…I have never tried it with any other type of paper.

    • I did not have a template for the palm branches but they should be easy to copy. You will need to cut 5 for each tree. Have you ever made a “Jacob’s Ladder?” It is an intertwining of 2 strips of paper and since a picture is worth a 1,000 words I suggest you check out a video on You Tube for a “visual” that would be easier to follow. A Joyous Christmas to you.
