As some of you may know (you are either participating in this campaign, or have gotten a knock on your door!), the month of August is a momentous one in the history of Jehovah's Witnesses. These special tracts are being distributed simultaneously throughout the entire world, directing attention to jw.org - a great resource for Bible education.
To assist in the distribution of tracts, my friend, Michele, has come up with a genius DIY project - tract holders! Here are her quick and easy instructions (photos are not mine):
Cut hard stock paper bigger than the tract. Place less than 1/2 inch apart for folding ease.
Cover outside in duct tape. You can buy cool designs at the dollar store.
Cover the gap in between the two sides. You can use a contrasting color or print. This one is red on the inside, and you can see that the larger gap allows the holder to bend in half more easily.
Cut a smaller piece of card stock and cover it in the same tape that you are using for the inside (see smaller red square on the right).
Attach the smaller pieces to either side of the holder by placing some tape alongside the edges, overlapping both sides. Be sure to use the same pattern/color duck tape that you used for the outer design.
You can customize it if you like, but if not, you are done! Michele finished hers off with cutouts of Caleb and Sophia (the stars of the jw.org series, Become Jehovah's Friend). She attached them by cutting out the printed images and taping over them with clear packing tape. So simple and quick! You can see her finished tract holders:
If you are participating in this campaign, maybe you can try this project with some younger ones. Feel free to pin, share and/or comment below. Thanks for reading, and a big thanks to Michele for sharing her wonderful idea!
