Keeping with the series of “The Divine Mission Of Jesus Christ”, this month’s message was about The Good Shepherd.
Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd, taught:
“What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? …
“I say unto you, that … joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth” (Luke 15:4, 7).
As we come to understand that Jesus Christ is the Good Shepherd, our desire increases to follow His example and serve those in need. Jesus said: “I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. … And I lay down my life for the sheep” (John 10:14–15). Because of Christ’s Atonement, none of us will ever be so lost that we cannot find our way home (see Luke 15).
I have done baggie toppers in the past (Bunny Tails Topper), but decided to try to do a lunch sack topper this time. I printed the message directly onto my lunch sack and using my Silhouette program, I designed a lamb face I wanted to use.
I started a group on Facebook for local Silhouette users. If you’re in Arizona, come join the Silhouette Arizona group … there I share my files as I create them instead of waiting until I can sit still at the computer to write a blog post. BUT, nonetheless, here is the link to the studio file for my lamb topper studio download. In that file, you will see I have colored in certain parts of the lamb so you know what cuts what. When I was new to the silhouette concept, the whole color fill thing totally threw me off. So just in case there are any newbies out there that download that file and then get confused as to why it looks different, allow me to explain rather quickly. I have it set up and colored in so you can see what shape is for what part of the topper. Separate the shapes by color before you attempt to cut. Just move the shape off the cutting area (usually mapped out in the program by the red square). Cut all the “white” filled shapes first on white paper, then the “pink” filled ones on pink paper, and finally the “black” filled ones on black paper.
The message I printed directly onto the sack I created in photoshop. You can right click the image below and save it if you would like a copy of it.
