Tutorial ~ Make your own Wallet Cards

~ Put the Word of God in your child’s pocket! ~

Bible verse wallet cards are like mini posters. They are easy to make and are fabulous items for your child to share around with family and friends. Using a similar technique that we used in how to make your own poster/postcards, this time we will shrink them down and arrange them evenly over our page to make our own Bible verse wallet cards. You may like to refresh on that tutorial first, then off we go…

DIY BIBLE VERSE WALLET CARDS-101

1. SET UP YOUR A4 PAGE in any editing program like MS Publisher, Photoshop, etc. These instructions are for MS Publisher (file – page set up).

  • Landscape = 9 wallet cards
  • Portrait = 10 wallet cards

*

2. ADD YOUR FRAMES:  Insert 9 (or 10) small, identical rectangles. Arrange them evenly over your page, leaving enough white space between them so they can be later cut. They will be the frames for each mini poster. Choose a border and fill color for each frame as you wish. Each frame should be roughly somewhere around business (or credit) card size:

  • 3.5 inches (9cm) long
  • 2.5 inches (6cm) wide

*

3. ADD TEXT:  Insert a clear text box over the first frame and type in your Bible verse. Choose font, size, and colour of your text. Repeat (copy and paste) for each frame.

And that’s pretty much it! You could print your wallet cards right now and they would look great. Too easy! But before you print them, let’s jazz them up a little and see if we can make them look more interesting.

MORE CREATIVE IDEAS – YOU’RE THE ARTISTE!

SAME OR DIFFERENT?  Do you want your page of wallet cards to look the same? Or would you rather have lots of different wallet cards? Go the same or go different ~ it’s your choice!

FRAMES:  Experiment with frame width (border thickness), colour and shape. Try oval, square, or a rounded rectangle. Or no border at all. (I would still insert the frame shape to use as a guide for my text). Or use a shape template (all you need is the outline) and go for something different to match your theme, e.g. a cake shape for a birthday package; a whale shape for a Jonah theme; a butterfly shape for a butterfly theme. And then put your Bible verse inside that. Cool.

FONTS:  Try different fonts, then experiment with font sizes and colours.

BIBLE VERSES:  Do you want the same Bible verse or a different Bible verse in each frame? Or maybe a series of Bible verses to go with your theme?

MINI POSTERS:  Shrink and fit a ready-made, free printable Bible poster or Bible verse card into your page and turn them into wallet cards.

WORD CLOUD GENERATOR + BIBLE VERSE:  Looking for something different? Try putting a Bible verse in a Word Cloud Generator and then shrinking it down and turning it into wallet cards. This would probably work best with something simple or with very few actual words, something like ‘Jesus loved you and chose you for His own’ from Colossians 3:12, or even ‘Jesus loves….. (your child’s name)’, otherwise it might be too difficult to read.

PHOTOS / CLIP ART:  Insert clip art or a photo in each frame. We can go for something small, like clip art which sits next to our text; or we can put it behind our text and fill the whole frame, which often looks better for photos. This is what I have done here.

To show you how to make your own matching items, I have used the same photo, frame, and text from the make your own poster/postcard tutorial, then shrunk it down, reduced the font size and rearranged the text boxes slightly to make it work better for the smaller wallet cards.

When the first one is done just how you want it to be, copy and paste it around your page.

Here are the finished wallet cards. Just perfect to go with your summer / beach theme. Print them on A4 photo paper for best results, then cut, laminate and cut again for a more professional touch. So now you can make your own matching Bible poster or Bible verse card (or postcard) and wallet cards! If you would like these for your own personal use, you can download them in full resolution from here.
