Divine Mercy Lap Folder for Little Flowers Virtue of Mercy.

I found a few ideas for making a Divine Mercy Lap book. But not anything that was complete with documents that were free. SO here is what I just did going off of what I found, to make for our Little Flowers Wreath II girls. We are meeting this weekend and working on the virtue of mercy and learning about St. Faustina. St. Faustina's Feast Day is October 5th. (Can't we all show some mercy nowadays?)

1)  Red paper file folder

2) Print off this Divine Mercy Chaplet Card from Holy Reflections (one of my fav sites) or use this blogs Diary of a Sower. I used card stock fyi. You can use either.

3) Image or Holy Card of the Divine Mercy for the front cover- find a Holy Card.

4) picture of St. Faustina for the inside- on my document

5) My document

6) Works of Mercy for the backside using the mini-book from Look at Him and be Radiant.

7) a large card envelope- or make something to put the mini books in. I have a huge envelope stack from my mother-in-law.

8) 1 piece of black card stock

9) glue or glue dots, or this cool "Xyron Create a Sticker" gadget- I love that thing!

Check out the pictures for a DYI.


Print out your mini-books, print double sided. Color and staple them.


Print out the beautiful prayer card from Holy Reflections on card stock or paper and cut it down to size- wont need much trimming. AND if you haven't already re-fold your folder.


Cut out your letters, the words are about 3 1/2" inches wide I think it was in 30 font.


Make them sticky and glue them down to black card stock.


Go ahead and just stick them onto your front flaps with your Holy Card of the Divine Mercy Image.


You staple the mini-books and stick them inside a huge card envelope. Cut it down and just tape the open edge.


I didn't want to hassle with making a mini-book holder that was pretty.


That's what's left of the envelope I used.


The Diary entries and promises get trimmed down and glued to black card stock. Place that over your mini-book holder.


There's room for one more thing... I haven't figured it out yet tonight, it's late and I will work on it more another night before our meeting.


Our other craft is going to be a felt handprint lily. Lilies are the symbol of mercy. I have an old post on these from a few years back. They are so simple and use very basic sewing skills.
