June 2018 Th!nk Magazine – Summer

Yesterday was the first day in summer! And Ainsley’s 17th birthday (make sure to comment happy birthday to her! 😉 ).  How are all of our wonderful readers doing? Well, I hope.

Today we have an awesome (If I do say so myself) magazine for you to enjoy! The theme is summer, and we had some fun with summer art inpsirtaion, summer activities you can do, and we even tackle the importance or clearing your conscience and how to properly apologize. Also, we were delighted to be apart of Kate Willis’s blog tour for her new book Kiera a Christian dystopian novel. So make sure you don’t miss that! She’s also doing an awesome giveaway.

Needless to say, over here at Th!nk, we are very excited to share this month’s magazine with you. The theme is two-fold: holiness, and also what it means to be Christ’s bride.

Not Just Knots & G.A.C. Quiz Answers- August 2014

Not Just Knots…

So this page is a knitting/crocheting page… but we never actually have taught you how to knit! How can this be? So, this month we are going to teach you the first basic things you need to know to knit. And we have an idea for practices that can also be a ministry! All you need to do it knit 7” by 9” sections and send them to an organization we found and they will connect them together with other sections to make blankets which they donate to people who need it. So this month we are going to teach you to knit so hopefully you can use this skill to bless others either through this organization or through gifts, donations, and however else you can! Since knitting is something that would take a lot of explaining to write down for you here, we have a how-to video to make it easier. Just email us and we will be happy to send it to you!

Crafty Corner- How to Decorate your Gratitude Journal

Crafty Corner

This month, we are going to show you some ideas for decorating your gratitude journal. Any journal will work fine, in the examples, I used a planner. Hope you enjoy!

Our first idea:

You will need a permanent marker and your journal.

Last month we talked about choosing a focus verse for 2014. Write your verse for the year (or your favorite verse) on the cover. Or you can decorate it with doodles or hearts, etc. Below, I put the verse I’m working on for the year which is 2nd Timothy 1:7.

Our second idea:

You will need scissors, ribbon, and your journal.

Cut the ribbon at a length so that it goes around the cover and you can tie it. See below if you don’t understand. Next, wrap the ribbon around the cover and tie into a bow.

Our third idea:

You will need duct tape, ruler, craft knife, tape, and your journal.

Make a duct tape bow by following the instructions from http://www.duckbrand.com/index.php/duck-tape-club/ducktivities/crafts/duck-tape-bows-small-and-large

Then use tape to secure it on your journal.

Our fourth idea:

You will need small photos (or anything about that size), a glue stick or glue dots, clear sticky contact paper(if wanted), and your journal.

Glue your pictures on your journal wherever and however you would like. I put some photos and some of my old art projects on the journal below.If wanted, you can buy a clear sticky contact paper to secure the pictures.

Our fifth idea:

You will need an old magazine, scissors, a glue stick or glue dots, and your journal.

Cut out letters from an old magazine(with permission) that spell your name or any other word(s). Glue them on in the place and position desired.

Extra idea:

You will need scissors, 3-5 different colors of ribbon, and your journal.

Create a handy bookmark by cutting each color of ribbon as long as you think it should be. Then tie them to your journal by taking the ribbons and knotting it around the journal holder.You can use this bookmark to hold different places in your journal or just one. Or if you would like, you can use this idea for your Bible.

Crafty Corner- Bible Verse Packet

Crafty Corner

This month for Crafty Corner we will teach you how to make a Bible verse packet out of duct tape to assist you in your memorization. Just keep this in your pocket so you can easily pull it out to review your verses while you are waiting in line, riding in a car or bus on the way to school, or eating a snack.

•Duct tape (I suggest white duct tape but it doesn’t really matter)


•A ruler

•1 ziping plastic bag

  • A marker

How To Do It

First, cut the ends of your plastic bag.

Now, measure out  3 inches of the plastic bag and mark it with the marker.

Cut at the place you marked, you only need to cut about 2 1/4 in.

At the end of the two and a quarter inches you just cut across the bottom.

Cut a little bit off the top, but make sure you don’t cut too much off.

Now, peel apart the two pieces.

On one of the pieces, cut off most of the plastic leaving only a little

Measure and cut a piece of duct tape that is 3 inches long.

Taking the piece of Plastic bag that you cut most of the plastic off of, tape the piece of Duct tape you just cut onto the top part of the plastic; don’t tape over the bumpy part, the part that connects it to the other one.Tape the tape on the side that would be the inside of the bag.

Now, here comes a tricky part: flip the whole thing over so the sticky side is facing up; and then fold the plastic down onto the tape and press down until it is securely stuck.

Cut Another piece of tape 3 in long, and tape it right under the bumpy part of the plastic.

Turn it sideways and flip it over.

Cut another piece of Duct tape 3 in long, and tape it to the back that should be showing up right now, overlapping the other piece of tape a little bit.

Flip it over.

Fold over the extra tape on the bottom.

Take the other piece of plastic and attach it to the piece that you just put Duct tape on.

Flip it over, and tape the extra plastic to the back with a 3 in long piece of tape. Make sure it is pulled tight.

Cut two pieces of tape each 2 inches long. Using these pieces, tape the sides off the plastic starting at the bottom. Try not to cover too much of the plastic.

Cut two pieces of tape; one 3 1/4 inches long, and the other 2 3/4 inches long.

Tape the two pieces together, centering the smaller one.

Next, with the back of the actual verse packet facing you, tape the two pieces you just taped together to it, forming a pocket. There is no need to cut another piece of tape to do this.

Now, cut a piece of tape 1 1/2 inches long and then cut that piece in half.

Use the two pieces you just cut to tape the bottom of the pocket closed, again, don’t cover the plastic too much.

Now all you need to do is add a piece of paper with a Bible verse on it. I used the Navigators Topical Memory System verse cards. You can add to this verse packet by making another of the same thing you just made and tapeing it to the other one. You could also always add more pockets. The more you want to do the fancier it can be. Here are some pictures of ones I’ve made:

We suggested white tape because you can write on it with a white board marker, and it wipes off!

We would love to hear your craft ideas. Whether it’s duct tape crafts, bracelet crafts, or other things.

Crafty Corner-Create Your Own Sports T-Shirt


Crafty Corner

Create Your Own Sports T-Shirt


  • Plain T-shirt, color Of your choice

  • Fabric Scissors

  • Dimensional Fabric Paint (The brand we used was TULIP)

  • Access to a Sharpie or other writing tool

  1. First you may want to put newspaper under the shirt, I doubt any of your paint will get on your workspace, but it’s better to be safe then sorry.

  1. I don’t think it matters what side you start on, but I started on the front of the t-shirt. Ok you are going to draw the outlines with a sharpie of what you are going to paint first. On The front I wrote Florida Gators (Thats where I got the color scheme from too) and above where I wrote Florida Gators I wrote my favorite number, 05.

  1. Now get your fabric paint and trace your sharpie outlines(fill them in if you want but I didn’t). It is easier if you start from the top and go to the bottom so you don’t rest your arm in wet paint and smudge it.

  1. Let your paint dry for a while, depending on how thick you made your paint lines this process may be slow or quick.

  2. Once your paint is completely dry flip to the back side. You will do the same thing with writing what you are going to paint first, but I wrote something different on the back, I still wrote my favorite number 05 but above it I wrote Th!nk, you can write whatever you want(On most real jersey’s it will say the players last name there so you could write your last name their if you don’t mind people seeing it when you go out in public) but on the back side I did not write Florida Gators, but you can totally do whatever you want.

  3. Now repeat step 3.

How did your Sports Tee turn out?
