Crafty Monday: Communion-themed art box

This miniature art box utilizes both a small, cross-shaped shadowbox and a tiny stand-up cross by Coffee Break Design. They’re made of masonite. The corpus was added by me and painted. Inside the box is gold, with a miniature paten and chalice. The text that papers the sides and back of the box are excerpts from the Large Catechism on the Sacrament of the Altar. The image of Christ crucified at the top reminds us what is contained “inside” the cross and delivered to us via bread and wine– the body and blood of Christ.
