Originally, these cards come in a large sheet. Students separate them at the perforated lines, put them in order, hole punch the corner, and place a book ring through the holes. I have used yarn, ribbon, and rubber bands to hold the cards together but nothing works as well as the book rings. They are well worn at the end of the school year and you may have to use the small re-inforcement holes if the original holes become torn.
I will do my best to describe each photo:
- With the old cards (at top of photo), the scripture reference is printed on the top of the card with the full verse.
- Note the new cards (at bottom of photo), the scripture is printed but no reference. This is awkward when using the cards for memorization and reading.
- When the card is hole-punched, the words on the old cards (at top of photo) are not affected,
- The words on the new cards are printed so high at the top of the card that, without exception, words are lost with every hole punched. Once again, very awkward, especially for those who are memorizing the scriptures word for word.
Below are more photo examples of old and new printing format:
Reference and full verse on card
Verse only-no reference
Front of cards with Scripture reference, key words, doctrines,
and historical settings has not changed.
I am sure with the change of the 25 scripture mastery verses for this year, that there was rush to get cards printed and distributed to Seminary classes all over the world. When another printing is planned, I am hoping these challenges are addressed and corrected.
