A New Life for Old Ensigns

I recently decided that because you can access the Ensign online, and because shelf space in our apartment is in high demand, it just wasn't practical to save every issue. I, however, was having a hard time just tossing them in the recycling... So I decided to create my own "Gospel Art Kit: Part II."

Now when I finish reading an issue, I go through it with a pair of scissors and cut out all the awesome pictures that go with the stories. Here are some samples of what I've collected over the past couple months:

Old Testament Stories

New Testament Stories & Life of Christ

Book of Mormon Stories

The Restoration & Church History

As you can see, I don't have that many pictures yet from the Book of Mormon or Church History, but I'm sure it will build over time. For now, I keep all the pictures in an organizer with a separate pocket for each "set." I'm really looking forward to having these to use for FHE lessons, primary classes, Sunday School, and who knows what else.  It's a cheap, easy project that' I'm sure will be a great resource for years to come!
