This very nice 3D Easter scene folder was put out by the Lutheran Brotherhood of Minneapolis as a teaching aid in Christian Education programs. The scene comes in it's original folder which has assembly instructions on the inside as well as the text of the Easter Story from Matthew 28:1-8. It consists of 4 pages of punch out scenery and figures and when done, if you place it under a light, the cave/tomb will be illuminated. Really quite interesting. Put some meaning in someone's Easter Basket and give them this unique gift.
